Strawberry and Vanilla Ice Cream
For this blend Namara Tea uses Ceylon Black Tea, Strawberry Pieces & Marigold flowers.
As soon as you open the tea pouch you are instantly engulfed with the aroma of the Strawberry and the Ceylon tea.
Let’s Get Brewing!
The aroma whilst brewing is very similar to that of its dry state. The strawberry does intensify and the vanilla notes from the marigold starts to come through.
As to be expected with a black based tea the brewed liquid is that of a dark brown almost black in its colouring for this blend.
Let’s Get Sipping!
First sip and I need another before I can make up my mind. The aroma of the tea in its dry state and whilst brewing the strawberry is very much at the forefront. Where as on first it wasn’t as apparent as I was hoping for it to be. This could be down to brewing time or maybe not so many strawberry bits .
The marigold petals within the blend do bring a slight vanilla notes to the blend but with the weakness of the strawberry you do get ice cream vibes. It may be even an idea of adding some milk to this blend may add to the icecream side but for my own personal preference I prefer black based flavour teas without milk. However tea is how you want to drink it.
This tea due to its lightness in flavour would be prefer blend for a hot summers afternoon sip. It has refreshing notes and would also be a great palate cleanser.
Happy Sipping 🙂
