Taster’s Review:

Silver Hawk Tea is a new company to me.  I was excited to try their teas especially with names like Blue Dragon Patronus.

This particular blend is a black tea with a unique flavor profile.  Pineapple-lemon with strawberry flavoring.  An almost tropical treat with a black tea base.  In my experience, these sort of teas can either be fantastic or can fall flat fast.  But one whiff of this blend, I knew this tea and I would be pals.

Brewed this up with 212F water and allowed it to steep for 3min.  Their steep parameters say to steep the tea for 4-5 min but I wanted to error on the side of caution.

Poured myself and my fiance and sat down to enjoy a cuppa with some TV binge time.  We both allowed our cups to cool off and tried the tea.  Both of our cups were gone in about a second.  This tea is a delicious sweet treat!

The flavor profile for this tea is a tropical feel.  Unique with a pineapple note mixed in with touches of lemon.  So there is a tropical tart like feel.  Then you are greeted with a strawberry almost vanilla like flavor that provides a smoothness and evens out the tropical tart like profile.  Lots going on with this tea but all in a good way.  I love how the flavor mix.  Can’t say I’ve ever had a pineapple lemon strawberry vanilla tea with a black tea base.  Smooth, well balanced, and the flavors just don’t stop giving. As fabulous as this tea is now, I bet this tea would be amazing as a cold brew and plan to use the rest of the tea that I have to do just that and garnish the glass with fresh lemon or lime wedges.

In conclusion this tea is delicious from the very first sip! This is a winner!
