Taster’s Review:

This is really good – surprisingly good for a bagged tea!

This tastes like a delicious Rose Congou tea that has been livened up with strawberry flavor.  The black tea base is a pleasant tasting black.  It is fairly mellow, but there is a hint of bitterness toward the end of the sip.  There really isn’t a whole lot to say about the black tea because really, the rose and the berry are the real stars of this show!

The rose is very well pronounced (like I said, it tastes like a Rose Congou).  I really like rose in tea so I am finding it rather lovely.  The strawberry is a bit more delicate than the rose, but the flavor develops as I continue to sip.  There is very little tartness from the berry; just fresh strawberry sweetness melding with the feminine notes of the rose.

There is an interesting contrast between the rose and the berry.  Such a unique and flavorful combination!
