Tasters Review:

I really had no idea what to expect from this tea.  But sometimes I think it’s a great idea to go into a cup like that!  Here are my findings on Little Black Dress Strawberry Vanilla from Teaquilibrium…

First off this certainly smells wonderful!  It’s a gentle aroma but you can pick out both the strawberry and the vanilla.  When it comes to taste it’s a great combination of flavors!  The Strawberry is juicy and sweet and the vanilla is creamy and smooth.  Both paired with the Yerba AND the Oolong it makes for a truly unique blend and flavor!  It’s sugary-sweet and refreshing!

Normally I don’t ever put anything in my teas!  When I was trying this I must have been in rare form and thought with my 2nd infusion that I would sprinkle some sugar in it.  Honestly, I was surprised that I liked it as much as I did!  It was like a different tea!  It was still good and tasty but different and still equally as unique.  By adding the little bit of sugar to it – it seemed to cancel out the vanilla a little as well as a bit of the creaminess.  It also intensified the strawberry flavor.  It sort of reminded me of fresh picked strawberries with sugar on top…that sort of flavor!

I must say I like this one hot and/or cold…maybe a little bit more cold, actually, and I also like it with or without sugar!  A very nice offering from a very nice tea company!
