4 Tasting Notes
Teavana’s Strawberry Daiquiri Herbal Tea is light-bodied and sweet. It is predominantly strawberry with a tinge of tart lemongrass and a faint boozy aftertaste. It goes over better chilled than hot, but it’s still nothing remarkable.
Flavors: Alcohol, Lemongrass, Strawberry
I am surprised at how much I did not like this blend. It has a faint tart lemongrass overtone, but it doesn’t taste overly like much. I tried this twice, once following exact directions given on the package, and a second time letting it steep a couple minutes longer. There isn’t enough character to really make much of an impact. I suppose one might use it as a vehicle for sweetener to justify its existence, but that seems like a waste. Given a time machine, I would have put this one back in the box, and made a different cup of tea. It might do better as an iced tea, though.
Flavors: Citrus, Hibiscus, Lemongrass
I found this tea to be slightly underwhelming. Initially, I detected rose and honey over a medium-bodied Darjeeling. There were hints of a citrusy astringency, but I did not get as much of the green chili note listed on the package as I was hoping. As I continued to drink, the spiciness of the chili was more noticeable, but not overpowering. The resulting tea was pleasantly savory, but nothing remarkable.
