cupteavitystrawberryStrawberry and mint. The combination just doesn't sound right. I've had strawberry-flavored gum, but nothing Altoid-like. A tea blend that touts having strawberry pieces and mint - yet doesn't specify what type of mint - sort of makes me do a double-take.

The dry batch seemed very similar to a light oolong or a dark green tea; Mao Feng, mayhap. The smell was exactly as the site description made it out to me - strawberry and mint. No deviation from that. Like a flavored children's toothpaste.

The Cupteavity tea profile provided little in the way of information. No brewing instructions, either. I had to go with my best guess for a green; 2 teaspoons (healthy), 185F-ish water, 16 oz., five-minute steep.

I'll confess the liquor didn't look very appetizing, like broth. The mint scent was really overpowering, backstaging strawberry. I think this answered the question of what type of mint was involved...peppermint. Said mint-muscle was also too strong in the taste. By itself, it would've been fine, it just didn't mix well with the other ingredients. I'm hard-pressed to remember if I sensed any sign of green tea.
