This was fine. It’s basically the exact same as every other strawberry green tea I’ve ever had from Deb, with the addition of rose petals. There is a subtle rose note, happily not enough to put me off. But I have a whole tin of Strawberry Roll Cake, and the ingredients are essentially the same. So not sure I understand the point of this blend, and they’re both in the same collection even (Asian Patisserie).

Also this tastes nothing like sakura… It tastes like strawberry and rose with a touch of honey. (shrugs)

The TTB tasting adventures continue! I found this a bit light/bland until I added honey, but adding the honey really brought the flavor out. Unlike others, I didn’t pick up on any floral notes. I DID get a tart cherry note along with the sweet strawberry flavor. It was fine, but not particularly to my personal liking since I really don’t enjoy cherry (and am generally picky about berries).

So a couple weeks ago I finally got my large order of Dessert by Deb teas, I have been actually rather slowly getting through these as I was trying to finish some other teas off.
This is one of the first green ones, I got to.

Preparation: Western
Tasting Note: I went over some of the notes that were posted for this blend to see if I had any differing tasting notes about this blend. I have realized that I don’t have a whole lot else to say about this tea that hasn’t been said already. That being said here are my top three thoughts: 1) I think this is a good floral strawberry tea, the green base is buttery and the fruits blend really nicely to mimic a sweet mild strawberry 2) I don’t think it reminds me of a sakura blossom tea (I have had a couple imported ones and if memory serves they were a little more plum-y tasting), but it isn’t a cloyingly sweet rose tea. 3) This tea is really similar to strawberry jam and toast because of the base but I prefer the strawberry jam and toast because the toasted rice really rounded the tea off nicely. I think if you really like rose florals though this blend might be for you.

I liked this, although it tasted more like a rose-floral strawberry tea to me than anything sakura.

Iced!

So, here’s my problem with this tea. I actually enjoyed it a lot, but it’s the exact same strawberry flavouring that I can get from almost a half dozen of Deb’s other strawberry blends. There’s literally nothing in this tea (other than the floral visual) that tastes anything like sakura at all, so since it just feels like another replica of her (admittedly delicious) strawberry teas there’s really zero reason why I couldn’t just buy one of them to enjoy and ignore the others…

That would be my recommendation to others who are curious about the strawberry teas. Just buy the one that most intrigues you because, really, you’re kinda gonna get the same thing with all of them. A good same thing, but the same thing regardless.

Yeah I feel like maybe she uses pre-flavored teas? Like strawberry is always with green tea, and blueberry is always with black tea.
