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!
