Once again the strawberry flavor here is bright and fresh and delicious, with nary a hint of the artificiality you find in many other "strawberry" teas. It pairs very nicely with the rather mellow Ceylon base used in this blend so that its neither overpowering to nor overpowered by the raw tea flavor. There is a creamy background flavor which you pick up mostly in the aroma and aftertaste which definitely brings cheesecake to mind.
The mixture of the malty, almost toasty Ceylon leaves with the fresh, fruity sweetness of strawberries and creamy richness of the cheesecake flavoring is truly just about perfect. This is the sort of quality you would expect - but very rarely find - from the higher-priced, "artisan" tea dealers. Whatever it is that Linsey Manning is doing at The Necessiteas... I hope she keeps on doing it. The two flavored tea samples I've tried so far have been simply outstanding.
