    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.

      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.

              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.

              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.
