Time for Tea Please?
Today we are sipping a BeauTEAful blend sent to me to try from The Duchess Tea Store which is their blend Strawberry Cream.
The Duchess Tea Store (direct from website) “was inspired, of course, by the well-known story of Anna Russell, the 7th Duchess of Bedford. As it was customary for the evening meal to be served very late, the Duchess complained of a “sinking feeling” in the mid-afternoon and requested that a pot of tea and light food be brought to her private chambers.”
Their “interest in the world of tea began with the fascination of visiting various tea rooms across the country. We quickly became tea afficionados and began sampling the many different flavors of tea. “

For this blend The Duchess Tea Store uses Green Tea and Dried Strawberry pieces.
As soon as you open the tea pouch you are instantly engulfed with powers of the strawberry. It’s super strong and punchy and then green tea side of the tea isn’t majorly noticeable in its dry state !
Let’s get brewing !
Whilst brewing the aroma of the tea does change from its dry state. The main aroma is that of the strawberry but now the green tea is starting to sing along with it.
As with most green teas the brewed liquid tends to be of a yellowy green nature but this one is slightly more than yellow most.
Let’s get sipping !
First sip and I am hooked ! Which for me is a bold statement when it comes to a green tea. I either love it or hate it, it’s my marmite of the tea world.
This tea is all about the strawberry. It’s way stronger than I expected it to taste as there wasn’t massively loads of dried strawberries within the loose leaf however that doesn’t matter. It’s super fruity and berry licious.
The fact that the green tea flavouring is only noticeable at the after sip makes you just want to keep sipping and sipping.
So if like me your not the biggest fan of green tea then this one is certainly for you !
Happy Sipping 🙂
