drank Queen's Choice by Riston
32 tasting notes

Got this at the Toronto Tea Festival. The Riston rep made it very clear that this tea was a best seller. They didn’t have it as a sample, so I bought it purely on the reputation he said this tea had. When I got home and logged it in my Steepster ‘cupboard’ I was very disheartened to see that the reviews were all negative, so it makes me wonder what the reputation was based on!
He did suggest I have the tea with milk and sugar. So based on the reviews stating it had a bitter taste, I brewed it very quickly so as to avoid that and added milk and sugar. It turned out quite nice actually! Like a lightly brewed English breakfast with a hint of strawberry. The strawberry does taste a bit like strawberry flavouring, but it’s not horrible.

Flavors: Strawberry

195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

I’m presently overwhelmed with so much tea and not enough time to drink it!! I can’t go into a tea store without buying something and I do the Tea Festival every year. I just can’t help myself.
Having said that, I became a huge fan of Majesteas and then they closed. So if anyone is willing to part with some, I have lots to swap with (not all are logged on my cupboard and I’m willing to swap non-tea items too)

Thanks! Happy Steeping!
