From Fortnum & Mason

The delicious taste of this classic summer fruit fused with black China tea makes an unusually refreshing drink. Sip its sweet, summery notes to bring the taste of sunshine to the everyday. Serve Fortnum’s Black Tea with Strawberry without milk to achieve the best flavour.

Ingredients: Black Tea, Strawberry Pieces (0.4%), Strawberry Flavouring

Goodbye yummy black Strawberry tea!

Happy New Years Eve to everyone. :)

We are doing nothing special today, but I did watch about 4 episodes of Supernatural (hello season 5!) so I’m very happy with where the day went! We’re almost out of Christmas cookies and chips and all that junk so that’s also a bonus. Then I won’t be tempted to eat all the bad things if it’s not sitting in my cupboard, taunting me.

MMMMmmmmmm this is a great tea. Thanks Sil
I’ve been drinking this for most of the evening, and it’s really nice. Nice gentle strawberry. Nice black base – is that a hint of malty chocolate way in the back from the base – maybe, or it’s wishful thinking – either way I like this.
It’s not fake in your face flavors, it’s just nice and subtle but no question it’s strawberry. I really like this with a hint of sweetener and a dash of milk. It makes me happy.

OMGsrsly

Yours is the third or fourth positive review I’ve seen, so I’m adding this to my (distant future) shopping list! :)

Dexter

It’s different that what you would expect from Davids or Della, more natural somehow, more subtle, but yet oooozes strawberry. I really like it. If I saw it, I would buy more. :))

OMGsrsly

Excellent… :)

Sil

It’s quite nice. If I had more I’d send some your way but it’s been parcelled out. Heh

Mucho gracias to Sil for this sample!
I am really liking this blend. Uber yummy!! Reminds me of the Strawberry tea I bought from Pippins last summer, and still have a smidge left of, but it’s lost all it’s flavour since I didn’t have a tin for it and so ended up storing it in it’s gold foil baggie.
Anyhow, I digress.
This tea tastes just like a strawberry campino candy! Creamy and sweet. Yum. I love that it was amazing without any additives, but just a touch of sugar, as in 1/3 tsp, made it into a truly decadent dessert. I should have waited til later in the day haha.
The black base is nice as well, standing up to the flavouring. In some ways I think it is very similar to the 52Teas black base, only smoother and not so abrasive.

Ozli

Mmmm, strawberry campinossss. ;)

Indigobloom

it was so yum! I wanted strawberries after lol

Sil

I’ve got more at my place. Just Saying :)

Sil

Indigobloom

Thanks, Sil, for this sample! I had two cups of this tea last night while getting caught up with the latest season of Dexter (yeah, I know, I was supposed to finish off the last few pages of the fourth Wheel of Time).

Loved the cream component to this tea. It was slightly more dominant than the soft, dessert strawberry flavour. Sugar and vanilla are usually good things. The black tea base was smooth, with little astringency or bitterness, making it easy to drink quickly. I regret not saving one of the servings for another day.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Ugh, Wheel of Time. That’s some of the worst writing I’ve ever read. The story is good, but the storytelling is atrocious.

CrowKettle

Yes! I’ve dealt with my fair share of mediocre writing (thank you fanfiction), but the length of this series drives home the absurd amount of repetition. I wonder how many times Nynaeve tugs at her braid across the whole series. Despite that, and other faults, I’ve enjoyed the story so far.

Here’s one from the BBBB, compliments of Sil. Thanks Sister!

I drank this straight, but I think next time I’ll sweeten it a bit, & maybe even add a little french vanilla creamer, ala strawberries & cream!
Little Terri is in my head, yelling, “I want more tea!!!”, like a little brat. The truth is, I do want more tea, but I need to make my next cup something without caffeine, so I can go to bed early, or at least at a reasonable hour tonight.

Sil

i liked this one cold…

Terri HarpLady

I could see that it would make for a nice refreshing cold brew :)

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

A little too astringent. I think that I must have used too much leaf. I should use only 1 tbp for 375 ml in the future. Good strawberry flavour.

Thanks to Sil for sharing!

Sipdown! (24 | 24)

Another Fortnum mini tin down! (only 21 more to go… o.o)

This is a fairly enjoyable strawberry black tea. Definitely a more candylike strawberry IMO, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It reminds me of those strawberry candies with the strawberry-print wrapper that are juicy in the middle. Sweet strawberry with just a bit of tartness to it, which keeps it from being cloying. The base here is almost certainly a Chinese black tea, as it’s completely smooth with a strong earthy character. A bit of musty hay as well.

Overall a pleasant tea to sip on, but nothing to write home about. Now that I think about it though, I’m not sure there are any strawberry teas that I’ve really loved. At least, not plain strawberry. So maybe it’s just not my thing.

Flavors: Artificial, Candy, Earth, Smooth, Strawberry, Sweet, Tart, Wood

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I love those candies! But you’re so right—a really good strawberry tea that tastes like actual berry is hard to find.

ashmanra

Mine is all gone as this was a favorite and one of the first to be finished off! Tomorrow I hope to put a big dent in two more mini tins.

@gmathis – I remembered one that I like! Tochiotome from Lupicia.

@ashmanra – You’re doing so well! I’m jealous ha ha. :P

Merry Christmas to all of the lovely people here on Steepster! You mean so much to me.

Ashman and I had a simple Christmas breakfast of toast and tea while sitting on the floor in front of the bow window watching the birds come to the birdbath. I wanted it to be special for him, so I chose his favorite tea from the F&M advent calendar as our Christmas morning tea. This one and the Lemon Flavored Black Tea were my favorites, probably tied pretty evenly.

It was a very nice morning tea, fresh and fruity and uplifting, we both enjoyed it.

Leafhopper

Merry Christmas! :)

More of this one – same opinion, that it’s good enough, especially considering the age. Should be a sipdown soon!
