65 Tasting Notes
First time having this tea. Brewed for 3 mins in boiling water.
The dry leaves smell exactly like a strawberry shortcake. I would eat it if i could. The leaves are shiny and heavy as if there is a lot of artificial flavoring - although you can already tell that by the smell.
The brewed tea – smells more like a black tea and less like a dessert.
The taste of the tea is like strawberry flavored cake or cookies— not ones that use fresh strawberry . This would be good with some milk and sugar ,which might help enhance the strawberry flavor and give you the creaminess of a cake.
I am drinking this tea plain and it is perfectly fine. The black tea is smooth and very refreshing. The aftertaste of this tea leaves a wonderful artificial strawberry flavor.
If you have ever eaten the pink frosting/ strawberry flavored cream biscuits or pocky sticks, that’s the artificial strawberry flavor I am getting.
Flavors: Cream, Strawberry
Delicious and refreshing. I love having this in the morning. I have been seeking out different earl grey and none have hit the spot like this one. The bergamot is strong and the goes well with the mellow green tea. The green tea is not one of those astringent green teas. I honestly think I enjoy the green based earl greys more than the black tea based ones.
cold brewed it in a medium Mason jar for 36 hours.
It is bright red from the hibiscus and the rose hips. It tasted like strawberry and kiwi – a bit artificial but that it is what I was expecting so I am not disappointed by that. The flavors are coming out strong. It is very tart and slightly bitter and thick because of tisane to water ratio. I was expecting it to be weak like other fruit teas so I went a little scoop happy. I would add a bit less of the tisane or add more water the next time I make it. This tea unlike other fruit infusions from different brands is not as sweet which is lovely. There are no artificial sweetners or sugary fruits in it which makes it so I can consume more of it without having the sweetness invade my taste buds
