Leaf Type: Oolong & Green Yerba Maté
Where to Buy: Teaquilibrium
Close your eyes and imagine sitting in a field of fresh strawberries– breathe in the intoxicating scent, pick a plump berry and let the flavor burst in your mouth. Teaquilibrium’s organically grown Strawberry Vanilla is delightful and gently energizing. The distinct flavor of green yerba mate magically blends with the smooth toasty cocoa aroma of the oolong, organically grown strawberries and topped with a hint of vanilla. As with all of our Little Black Dress teas, Strawberry Vanilla is an exclusive Teaquilibrium blend.
Try Strawberry Vanilla hot or chilled. For a delicious and refreshing pick me up, cold infuse Little Black Dress Strawberry Vanilla and serve in a pitcher with fresh strawberries.
Happy New Year!
I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a blend quite like this one. Oolong and Green Yerba Maté? I certainly had my doubts going in to this but, I am glad I finally decided to try it, because it is really quite tasty!
The combination of Oolong and Yerba Maté make for a truly interesting blend. The Oolong has a rich, roasted and somewhat buttery quality to it, and the Yerba Maté seems to pick up where the Oolong leaves off to create a very full-flavored experience – one that neither Oolong nor Yerba Maté could accomplish on their own.
The flavors are a bit lighter than I was anticipating, although the flavors do intensify as I make my way toward the bottom of the cup. I like the way the sweet, ripe strawberry flavor sort of pops in and out of the sip, while the vanilla adds a creaminess that completes the flavor. This is a pleasantly smooth and sweet cup – but not too sweet.
This is a very well-rounded cup that I really enjoyed! Bravo to Teaquilibrium for a tea well done!
