Tea Review: Pine Creek's Strawberry Green
TYPE: Green Tea
BRAND: Pine Creek's
Not too long ago, I found this particular brand at a trade show in a kiosk. They are based close to where I live in Edmonton, AB, Canada. Pine Creek's had quite a few unique flavors. This one in particular had caught my eye.
Personally I love green tea, so when I saw a strawberry green tea, I was ecstatic. A combination of my favorite fruit and favorite tea? How could I not resist such a combination?
The aroma of the tea is quite lovely. You can smell the strawberry right away and just enough of the green tea as well. Just the aroma alone you would think highly of this tea, but the taste was not as good as I was hoping. Don't get me wrong...the taste of the tea is still overall not too bad, but the strawberry becomes more subtle and the green tea is weaker as well.
The strawberry green tea, I would recommend is better colder than a hot tea as the sweetness of the strawberry becomes more pronounced as the temperature is lower. It's not a tea I would recommend re-steeping as the first steeping is already weak in flavor already.
