2021 Sipdown Challenge – National Strawberry Day!
This strawberry-themed day seems the perfect time to try this one from the last group order! It smells and sounds delicious, but I just haven’t gotten around to trying it yet. Well today is the day!
I did mess up the steeping a little, as I ended up not having enough water. So I steeped it for 3 minutes and then added more water at the end. How much that will affect the taste, I don’t know.
Anyway, it came out yummy! For me, there are equal amounts of raspberry and peach, with strawberry as a secondary note. The peach here is Lupicia’s amazing white peach, though I don’t taste it as clearly as their Momo teas because of the black base and other additions. But it still tastes fairly authentic and juicy, with a nice tartness to it. The raspberry is a bit candy or jam-like, but that doesn’t make it any less tasty. I only get a little strawberry, as it melds into the peach rather well, with its similar balance of sweet-tart notes.
I really like it! I’m undecided on whether it will be a reorder, but I have a few more cups to think about it. :)
