type: black

origin: sri lanka decaf

caffeine: no-caffeine

price level: $$$$

Succulent taste of strawberries with decaf Ceylon black tea. Fresh sweet-floral and berry flavor, smooth and sugary texture. A gentle, natural decaffeination process retains the delicate shape and flavor of the tea leaves. Steep at 212°F for 3 minutes

      Strong strawberry aroma, but the strawberry flavor was more subtle. A bit of honey enhanced the berry taste. I steeped at 190°F x2 minutes. The tea is not at all bitter, and resteeps well for a second cup. So nice to be decaf!

      A little piece of heaven is found in this tea. I love that Adagio offers CO2 decaffeination.

      I wanted to enjoy this tea more than I did. As iced tea, I noticed a nice strawberry flavor at the beginning, but as I continued to sip, the bitterness of the tea became more and more prominent despite the sugar. I tried added a little milk, but it didn't really work for me. I would probably enjoy this tea more if there were more strawberries.

      Very nice! The tea flavor itself was a little thin for some reason, but the strawberry flavor was spot on!

      I don't like decaf tea, but this was a massive exception! It was just as good as the full caffeine version, with sweet, lovely strawberry taste.

      I got it in my communiTEA and very much enjoyed the flavor profile of it.

      Strawberries remind me of summer. This tea is great hot or iced with the addition of some Adagio’s rock sugar to bring out the sweetness.

      Adagio does decaf well. It doesn't have an off putting taste, and you would never guess it wasn't the fully caffeinated version. This has a pleasant, natural strawberry aroma and flavor. It isn't fake or generic berry. It blends perfectly with the black tea, and is just as good hot or iced. Brewed at a lower temp (190F) it is not too bitter or astringent, just the perfect amount of black tea bite.

      Nice strawberry aroma and flavor. The tea has no bitterness and light astringency.

      This tea is great! I made it hot right before bed and it was the perfect cap to a good day. The berry flavor is pronounced but not overpowering, letting the tanginess of the Ceylon shine through.

      This is a lovely tea. I made it hot and cold and added sugar. Both times the flavor was delicate and balanced. Perfect drink for summer.

      Fantastic aroma and flavor. Cannot really tell that it is strawberry but still worth buying and drinking.

      Although the berry flavor is very subtle, this tea is great! I appreciate that it isn't artificial tasting (especially since the blueberry, blackberry, and cranberry teas are almost unbearably artificial tasting.) It doesn't have that umph of the caffeinated version, but that's okay. I'm glad to have this decaf tea to drink in the evening! It's not as good as the cinnamon hazelnut creme, but it's not a fair comparison really. Love this and will be buying again!

      Delicious! It tastes like strawberries and not artificial flavoring! I couldn't tell that it was decaf from the taste, which is another point in its favor.

      Not my favorite of the fruity teas but nice to have once in awhile.

      For some reason this one has been hard for me to get right. Sometimes it tastes great, but others it's really bitter, even when the water is below boiling. It can be good, but I usually don't feel like wasting my time betting on it
