Another creative blend from Tea Forte. Immediately upon opening the can, you see the quality of the tea. The delicately curled up leaves mixed with the dried strawberries give you a visual , and the fragrant aroma lets you know that something wonderful is coming. It is a fruity, sweet tea that is very unique. Either hot or iced, it is a fun and welcoming blend of tea. Be careful not to steep too long or it can get bitter. All of the teas that Tea Forte makes are of the highest quality and the new products never cease to impress me.
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.
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.
