Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: Enjoying Tea
This tea is made from top grade orange pekoe Ceylon with natural strawberry flavoring. The Ceylon tea is grown at the altitude of 7000 feet above sea level from the Sri Lanka region. When brewed this tea produces a bright coppery color liquid with fresh strawberry flavor and with touches of mild astringency. A fantastic fruit tea.
Yum! Is there any fruit that screams out “summer” like a strawberry? Sweet and juicy, vibrant red flesh – even those little seeds that get caught in between the teeth. OK… maybe that part isn’t so great, but, I’m willing to trade the small inconvenience of getting tiny seeds caught in between my teeth for the deliciously sweet flavor of a fresh strawberry, anytime!
But with this tea, I don’t have to! I get that sweet, delicious flavor of a strawberry AND no tiny seeds!
The flavor of this tea is true to the fruit – juicy sweetness with just a hint of berry tart that dances on the tip of my tongue in the finish. It is incredibly yummy!
Ceylon tea is a good choice as a base for this tea. The Ceylon used here is mild with a light astringency. It produces a lovely coppery cup that is full-flavored with a pleasant medium body, while being mellow enough to not interfere with the amazing fruit flavor.
This tea is delicious served hot and extraordinarily refreshing served chilled. As I mentioned in a previous review, my favorite way to serve this iced is blended with a 50-50 ratio of Strawberry Black Tea and English Breakfast Black Tea (also from Enjoying Tea). This gives it more of a tea flavor with a hint of strawberry flavor. It is guaranteed to revitalize even the most heat weary soul!
