Comments about Teavana Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh® Tea:

Whenever I first taste a tea I don't add sugar or milk or anything so I can taste the tea for what it is.

The smell of this tea was like those strawberry hard candies and smoke. And the smell really affected the flavor at first, but once I got over the smell it was an alright tea.

The flavor of the tea came through so it wasn't all flavoring. But there was this smoky after taste to the tea which is one of the worst things for a tea, I have a tin of otherwise fantastic oolong that I don't touch for that very same after taste.

    Comments about Teavana Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh® Tea:

    I loved this tea, it was exactly what I was looking for. Strong enough without being bitter and since I can't stomach any kind of sweet tea this really fit the bill. I can identify the strawberry but it doesn't overpower the tea with its sweetness.

      This tea is all of summer rolled into small leaves. When the associate look the tin off I wanted it, it smelled like summer. I still can't believe its black tea, its such a fresh tasting light tea you would swear it was a green or white.

      Comments about Teavana Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh® Tea:

      This tea is great, both sweetened and unsweetened. I usually take my flavored teas (especially blacks and pu- erhs) sweetened, but I thought that this would be a good tea unsweetened. I was right! Out of the tin, it almost has a sickeningly sweet aroma to it, but pushing past that, it makes great tea!

      Unsweetened, it's earthy, but not overpoweringly so. If you're looking for more pu- erh flavor, possibly putting a little bit of a pure pu- erh in with your tea wouldn't hurt. The strawberry and vanilla take a backseat to the pu- erh, but I would have liked more earthy pu- erh. It seems like it's apologizing for its earthiness.

      Sweetened, it's a little underwhelming. Generic strawberry vanilla black tea. Probably would be good as an iced tea.

      Comments about Teavana Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh® Tea:

      I really liked the idea of this strawberry tea, but it did taste artificial. However, I mixed it with a few different teas to get a better flavor, and that worked out. Try it with chocolate bananas foster, that was good!

      Comments about Teavana Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh® Tea:

      Pu-Erh teas are a love or hate thing for most people. These teas are aged and have a distinct earthy flavor and scent. I highly enjoyed this Strawberry flavored Pu-Erh, as it's a favorite fruit. The tea itself is mild and not overly earthy, so this would be a great Pu-Erh for a first-time drinker. The strawberry and vanilla notes are just wonderful and the smell alone makes me very happy! I don't understand the negative reviews on this tea, as it's one of the best I've tried in awhile. There was no strange after-taste, no weird texture, etc. and the health benefits of Pu-Erh after a meal will help weight and metabolism of fats. I plan to keep buying this one in the future.

      Doesn't taste as good as it smells

      Comments about Teavana Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh® Tea:

      Start with 2oz (or 1oz if the store will let you) and see how that goes. Steeping as recommended, I cannot drink this tea on it's own. I have to steep it with another straight black tea; my favorite is a 1:1 with Black Dragon Pearls.

      Tonight, I steeped it alone, steeping as recommended, then added FRESHLY CUT STRAWBERRIES to it AFTER steeping which made it MUCH easier to drink--steeping for 90 seconds made it better/easier to drink, also.

        My friend bought this for me two years ago and it is my absolutely favorite tea to drink hot or cold. It has a light fruitiness and an earliness to it that compliments my craving for not too sweet tea. I will continue to purchase this tea on a regular basis.

          Undrinkable

              Comments about Teavana Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh® Tea:

              I thought this tea was undrinkable and could not even get through one cup. If I could return it, I would. The taste was not good, a little bitter, and not a very strong strawberry taste. There was also something about the mouth-feel that was not rigt - it was sort of oily or slimy, which I have never encountered with tea before. THis was a huge disappointment since I have loved many other teavana teas so much.
