Strawberry and Vanilla

Tea: Strawberry & Vanilla 8502
Vendor: Lupicia
Price: $5.50 / 50g
Vendor Description:Green tea blended with Matcha and flavored with sour-sweet strawberries and vanilla. It goes well with milk.

This tea has a very strong strawberry smell when you first smell the leaves. As you brew the tea the strawberry scent dissipates and you start to notice the vanilla scent more.

The actual brewed tea is very smooth and retains the faint smell of vanilla. At the first taste there is a sweet strawberry taste which carries into a faint vanilla flavor. There is no sense of bitterness to this tea and only a light sense of astringency when finished.

Rating: 7/10

Conclusion: This is a very pleasant tea to try out, although I don't know if I would drink more than a few cups of this in a row. It is a pleasant change and has a very nice aroma to it. If you are looking for a mild tea this is a very good choice.
