You make me blush. Elegant India black tea with organic strawberries and a rose petal or two.
This is really good – surprisingly good for a bagged tea!
This tastes like a delicious Rose Congou tea that has been livened up with strawberry flavor. The black tea base is a pleasant tasting black. It is fairly mellow, but there is a hint of bitterness toward the end of the sip. There really isn’t a whole lot to say about the black tea because really, the rose and the berry are the real stars of this show!
The rose is very well pronounced (like I said, it tastes like a Rose Congou). I really like rose in tea so I am finding it rather lovely. The strawberry is a bit more delicate than the rose, but the flavor develops as I continue to sip. There is very little tartness from the berry; just fresh strawberry sweetness melding with the feminine notes of the rose.
There is an interesting contrast between the rose and the berry. Such a unique and flavorful combination!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
