Thumbs up!"I did enjoy this best with a touch of sweetener (rock cane sugar) and thought this was best when iced. In fact, if I purchased this, I would likely prepare it iced 90% of the time. "

cupteavitystrawberry"Loose green tea with aroma and sweetness of fresh strawberries accompanied by refreshingly cool mint tea." ---Cupteavity website.

If you follow Teaviews to any extent, you know by now that I like flavored teas quite a bit. I am also attracted to blends with unusual flavor profiles, so I had to request a sample when I saw this blend. Cupteavity was a company that was previously unknown to me until recently. One thing to note about Cupteavity is that if you are not in a hurry to receive your tea, and can wait for First Class mail, then they have some very reasonable shipping prices.

My sample package consists of green tea, dried strawberry pieces, and I believe there is some mint in there. I prepared this using my standard green tea preparation which is water brought to steaming and infused the leaves for 2-3 min. The thing that strikes me most about this cup is that the three flavors (green tea, mint, strawberry) have a nice balance to them. Mint does probably dominate the cup, but it doesn't totally overpower the strawberry or the green tea. The strawberry is the next most dominate, but I can in fact taste a bit of the green tea. The green tea is mild and does not bring any vegetal or swampy notes to the cup. I did enjoy this best with a touch of sweetener (rock cane sugar) and thought this was best when iced. In fact, if I purchased this, I would likely prepare it iced 90% of the time.

This tea reminds me of some of those crazy gum flavors out on the market the past few years like strawberry lime and watermelon mint. I can't say that this is favorite of mine, but it does make a pretty decent iced tea and is definitely worth consideration if you contemplate a purchase from Cupteavity.
