Its OK"All in all, this is an enjoyable tea but not one that reminds me of a daiquiri. In my opinion, the flavors need to be much more in your face to qualify."

necessiteasstrawberrydaquiriBeing as I was in the mood for a flavored tea when digging through my samples, I went right to the Strawberry Daiquiri from The NecessiTeas. I had been waiting for just the right time to try out this tea as it smells so delicious. What a wonderful aroma of strawberries and rum with just a touch of vanilla.

My sample was composed of green tea. I wasn’t able to find any berry bits so I am assuming that strawberry flavoring was added. The green tea itself appears to be a mixture of whole leaves that almost appear to have been ironed they are so straight and flat, and shake. Probably due to the postal service not being kind to my sample.

I brewed up my sample using four teaspoons for my four cup tea-maker, setting the water temperature for 180 degrees and the brew time for 3 minutes. This resulted in light green liquor with all the aroma of the dried sample.

The taste of the tea is surprising light with the aroma being so strong. I am able to taste the green tea itself which is very smooth with just a hint of a vegetal taste. The strawberry taste and the rum tastes also come through though not very strongly. I wasn’t able to pick up any vanilla.

All in all, this is an enjoyable tea but not one that reminds me of a daiquiri. In my opinion, the flavors need to be much more in your face to qualify. I probably would have rated this tea higher if it wasn’t for that fact. I definitely recommend checking it out for yourself.
