Fruit teas can be a bit of a mixed bag. Many fruit teas are overpowering and seem fake (probably because they are); others are so weak you can hardly taste the fruit at all. It’s rare that I find a fruit tea that hits the proverbial sweet spot. Strawberry Blend does an excellent job, as long as you are looking for a dessert tea.
Interestingly, I can’t find a source for a company called “Tea Head” outside of Sips by™ itself; even the packaging of the sample I received contains their domain name. Conversely, I can’t find any reference on the Sips by™ website to indicate that Tea Head is an official brand or subsidiary, so I’m not sure what to think.
Regardless, Strawberry Blend is an almost candied blend of elderberry, apple, black currant, blackberry, strawberry, and raspberry. Usually, the idea of a candied tea would be off-putting to me, but I gave this one a chance, and I’m glad I did! It is vaguely reminiscent of a strawberry Jolly Rancher, but not quite as tart. All in all, it’s a sweet, juicy blend that works beautifully as a dessert tea.
