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!
