naiveteastrawberryoolongI was immediately struck by the wonderful scent of this tea. Both the oolong and the strawberry were easily discernible. I brewed it using my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker. The liquor was a light gold color and had the same aroma as the dry leaves. My first attempt with this tea was disappointingly weak. Whenever I have a bad experience with a tea I tend to try, try again until I get it right. The third time was the charm and I finally found the right brewing parameters. This tea came out best when treated like a black tea. My final temp and time was 212 degrees for four minutes.

When I finally did get it right, the flavor of this tea was really nice. Each sip started out tasting like vaguely floral oolong and ended strawberry. The flavor stayed in my palate in a pleasant way.It wasn’t sickeningly sweet like a lot of fruit flavored teas are. There was very little astringency, but perhaps that is what was missing. Strawberries are sweet but they are also a little tart. This blend was just a little too candy like. It wasn’t something I’d seek out on my own but I would probably recommend this tea.
