More savory than I like
If you like a more savory and less sweet taste this tea is for you - the Basil overtone is very strong for my taste, I am more of a fruit flavored tea drinker. My friends that like savory flavors and unsweetened tea love this. Just not "my cup of tea".
Good Iced Green Tea
I much preferred this tea brewed at 1.5 strength (3 pouches for 2 quarts) as I found the flavor too mellow when brewed as instructed. I didn't find the basil to be overpowering. The strawberry came through the most and then a hint of basil.
This tea is a delicate flavor of strawberry which you can taste. The tea is not overly sweet or strong. It taste great with a spoonful of honey as a sweetener I also use raw sugar.
This has just way too much basil flavor for me and not nearly enough strawberry to balance it out. (And this from someone who loves pesto.) As an iced tea product I was expecting something much more "fruity".
Best Strawberry Tea Ever
I received a sample of this tea and knew I had to buy it. I've been hunting for tea that truly tastes like strawberries for a long time now and I dislike tart teas so that made something hard even worse. Forget best strawberry tea---this is some of the best of any tea I have ever had along with Pineapple Ginger and their Christmas teas. And it's organic!
I cannot say enough about this delicious flavor combination. It has become my favorite iced tea! Best of all, it's perfect without any sweetener. I wish more stores carried it locally.
Refreshing and Flavorful
This tea has a nice flavor that refreshes you on a hot summer day.
Last night I prepared the tea, it was a bit too weak for me. I decided to infuse it with frozen strawberries, and fresh basil hoping that would do the trick. This afternoon it was time for a taste test and I must say my husband I could not be more delighted!!! It is by far the best iced tea I have ever tasted!! I'll be making this one often.
Much like my initial response to the idea of watermelon and mint, my first thought about a strawberry basil combo was "really? ew!" But I went ahead and ordered some in my last shipment because, hey, the packaging is pretty and also because watermelon mint turned out to be such a pleasant and refreshing surprise. Made my first pitcher last night (we are having weird, humid weather here in SF) and I drank four full glasses. The strawberry flavor is perfect and the basil adds a slight herbal complement that makes this truly thirst-quenching.
Wasn't sure about it when I purchased it, but glad I gave it a try! The strawberry isn't overwhelming and the basil adds a clean refreshing note! Great for summertime drinking! Will definitely reorder this one!
I received this in the new catalog and loved it. I just wish it came in the individual cup portions. I enjoyed it warm and cold.
A Must Have All Summer Long
Upon cracking open the canister, one cannot help but smile. The strawberry scent was quite present. Yum! Each large tea bag made a quart of iced tea. I added boiling water to my glass pitcher and steeped on the counter until cool. I did not add ice but chilled in the fridge. I like my tea very potent and so I did add ice to my guest's glass (but not mine), and I also added fresh sliced strawberry and fresh basil mashed in my herb pestle into our glasses. I am sure it would be beautiful to freeze strawberries and mashed basil in ice cube trays and add to your guests glasses - all summer long!
Another perfect summer tea
Crisp and refreshing - I love the combination of flavors in this tea and look forward to sipping it all summer long!
Wasn't sure about this flavor combination at first, but I'm glad I bought it! It's naturally sweet and smooth! I received the tin last Friday Saturday, and I've gone through half of it already! Very delicious.
Family Loves It!
Bought this for Easter dinner. They couldn't get enough and even took some home along with leftovers :). Basil is nice pairing-light refreshing green iced tea.
