The tea has a wonderful aroma before steeping but loses that scent once steeped. There is no strawberry flavour to the tea despite allowing extra time to steep. There is an abundance of heavy green leaves that overpower the entire taste of the tea. I am very disappointed in this product.
I noticed the wonderful strawberry scent before I even opened the canister. While the scent is STRAWBERRY I found the favor to be - strawberry - a more subtle version. I tried it with just a drop of honey and actually didn't like it. I much prefer the tea on its own. I imagine it will be great this summer as an iced tea as another option.
Tea Forte's matcha (all flavors) is my morning tea of preference, but after one sip of this strawberry hibiscus tea I knew it would be a lovely change of pace for an afternoon cup, and perfect for spring/summer months. When I opened the canister the sweet smell of strawberries was amazing. And when I made my first cup, steeping the fragrant buds in my Jardin Kati steeping cup, I couldn't help but slow down and savor the experience. The tea is fragrant, bright, full of flavor and smooth. I see why it is a global award-winner.
