Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: Silver Hawk Tea
A fine black tea loaded with strawberries and the unique and luscious flavor of the South American Lulo. The Lulo has a pineapple-lemon flavor and when mixed with strawberry it’s amazing! Feel like you have a sentinel dragon guarding your positive and relaxing time when you sip this tea. Great hot or iced cold.

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!
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
