Once again, I made this tea in a small pot with 2 cups of water for one tea bag.  I let it steep for 7 minutes and paired it with a slice of triple chocolate mouse cake from my local Wegman’s market.

Strawberry Green Fields is made from Green tea, Papaya and Strawberry pieces.  Like the Liverpool Red tea, it’s the fruity aroma that will be the first thing to hit your senses as you raise the cup for a sip.  Despite it’s name and aroma, it’s the green tea flavor that stood out more than anything for me.  The fruit taste is there, but I honestly couldn’t have told you that it was made from papaya and strawberry had I not been told.

Strawberry Green Fields is an enjoyable light tea and I don’t believe the extra 2 minutes steeping time in the pot strengthened it any.  At first, I thought it was the way I was making the tea, but after having afternoon tea in Philadelphia over the weekend, I realized that liking stronger tea is just my personal taste.  When I get the time to enjoy the second teabag of Strawberry Green Tea that came in the variety pack, I will most likely use it in a large cup and forgo the teapot as I tend to like my tea a little stronger.
