This is a terrific Pu-erh blend and should be considered as such. I'm surprised at the overwhelming number of reviewers who expected to "not" taste what makes Pu-Erh distinctive: a very earthy, malty quality that comes from being aged. Don't buy this tea if you're expecting it to taste like strawberry-infused black. It's much more exotic than regular black tea. But for people who are considering trying a Pu-Erh and may not want to take that step of sipping it as-is, this is an excellent blend to introduce yourself to Pu-Erh. My absolute Teavana favorite, the quality is consistant throughout multiple steeps, and is a hearty "morning" and "evening" refresher. Also does well iced, as it tends to be a strong, dark brew. Great tea for people who also enjoy the nuances of coffees. Pu-Erh is like wine - it has different qualities depending on how long it's aged.

Honestly I thought this was the worst tea ever...before I started blending it. It's become one of my favorites for mixing, but I cannot tolerate it on its own. I mix it for a great hot tea with:
1tsp Mate Lemon Blast
1tsp Tung Ting Jade Oolong
1tsp Rooibos Peach Bloom
1tsp Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh
Steep for 3 minutes -- you can rebrew this mix once more, but sometimes it gets a bit bitter.

Also try mixing it with a 1-1 ratio with Rooibos Lemon Twist. The tea definitely works, but it does not tickle my fancy all on its own. It's ESPECIALLY important not to steep it more than 3 minutes; it's so strong.

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.

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.

          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.

          Comments about Teavana Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh® Tea:

          Reading the reviews prior to purchasing this tea, I was anticipating it to be on the strong, and earthy side. I was a bit disappointed by the fact that my first few batches were rather weak, and I ended up steeping the leaves for twice as long. Then again, I am the type who enjoys a hardy, and strong brew... Needless to say, a strawberry infused puerh tea SMELLED AMAZING. However, I found myself admiring the FAR more than the flavor. I made the mistake of buying too large of an amount, luckily, the price wasn't bad. It's a wonderfully calming tea. I'm planning to purchase the Yunnan Puerh soon.

                  Love this. Blends great with the white tea Strawberry Cream and Wonderberry Chocolate Truffle. It's strong and just the right kick you need in the morning to wake up. To give it a more strength blend it with the Wonderberry. if you wish to drink it all day and weaken it mix it with the Strawberry Cream. You get a true strawberry taste nothing fake which I love. I wonderful Tea any time of the day.

                  I went into the store to shop for some new teas and I came across this one. Usually I love black teas but this one didn't do anything for me. It tasted very artificial and had an unpleasant aftertaste. Sadly, I had to return it to the store for a refund.
