I have now had a couple of teas from Tea & Tins, one black tea, Miss Figgy, and two green teas, Spritz of Glitz and Zesty Strawberry (this tea). All have been nice enough teas, though of the three, I think this is the one I have least enjoyed.
Similarly to Spritz of Glitz this is a light and fruity tea with just a hint of a vegetal flavor coming from the base. Unlike Spritz of Glitz, which was a stonefruit tea, this is a strawberry blend with a “gentle zest of ginger”. A zest that is far too gentle for my liking since I am not tasting much ginger, if any at all. And though there is a fruity sweetness, it is more generic than distinctly strawberry.
Though there is nothing offensive in this tea, I do not find it all that memorable either. I enjoyed this cup well enough and I will try experimenting with the rest of the leaf I have, however, brewed according to Tea & Tin’s recommended steeping parameters, this tea is simply okay.
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Tea & Tins
Ingredients: green tea, strawberry with a gentle zest of ginger.

Enter Steepster.com. This is where I met some incredible tea friends, discovered tea swaps, and learned of so many amazing tea companies. My desire to try all the teas grew and since joining three years ago I have tried over a thousand different teas. I have learned what ingredients I love and I have learned what flavors I don’t like. I determined my go-to brewing method is Western-style with no added milk or sweeteners, though I also enjoy cold brewing, iced teas, teapops, lattes, and smoothies. I have yet to brew gong-fu style but I hope to do so just as soon as I get the proper teaware to do it.
About a year ago, I actually stopped drinking tea but as my stash of over 200 teas started aging I decided I needed to respark my interest. I chose to take a 365 days of tea challenge on Instagram in which I post a new tea picture every day. So far it has been rather successful as I find myself drinking (and buying) more and more tea each day. Plus it enabled CuppaGeek to find me and invite me here to SororiTea Sisters.
