    I was expecting this to brew up sweet but was pleasantly surprised to find it puckery and distinctly tart! The first infusion, steeped at 10 minutes (I don't know whether it's the difference in climate between Boulder and my desert city, but I've always needed a longer brewing time than the Tea Spot recommends), the color is a rosy red, lighter than full strength hibiscus tea, tasting of hibiscus and very little else. I got a nice sour but no fruit and gave it a preliminary rating of two stars. Where were all the other fruit components??? I decided to wait another 10 minutes before pouring the next cup. By the 20 minute mark, the cranberry, currant and strawberry flavors had emerged. The other fruit notes remained in the background. I couldn't specifically make them out, but there was discernably more depth of flavor as well as body to the brew. The tea in the cup had a much deeper color, closer to blackberry. My rating went up to 3.5. It seemed to me the flavors were still developing so I waited another 20 minutes before drinking the rest of the pot. At that point what poured from the spout was more of an elixir than a tea, dark blackberry in color, jammy-tasting with complex layers of berry so thoroughly melded that I couldn't separate what was what. Spectacular! Definitely five star. Round Two (now realize that I steeped the heck out of the first infusion) yielded the standard sort of watery, tart, hibiscus-predominant, fruit-scented tea you get from a tea bag bought at the store. Perfectly nice and drinkable. Third infusion? Well, I shouldn't have tried. It was basically rose-tinged water by then, not bad though. The first "stew" is the prize if you can wait long enough for the magic to happen. —Sophie
    It doesn't get much better than this tea. If you are a strawberry fan it's a MUST TRY! —Amber
    I just love this tea. However, I don't drink it straight, I like to mix it with Assam tea as I like black teas. Straight herbal teas are too watery tasting for me. When friends come over I hide this tea as I like too keep this tea for myself. I do not taste lemon as others have mentioned, thank goodness as I do not like lemon in tea. This makes a wonderful glass of ice tea which is how I drink most of my tea.—Oh myyy goodness
    I actually picked on this tea and ate the dried fruits because it smelled so fruity and inviting! It was surprisingly tasty without the hot water! I think I'll try it in a tea next time!—Dawne
    While there is definite berry flavor and aroma, this tea taste overwhelmingly of lemon. I expect this is due to a very large quantity of hibiscus. I didn't care for it at all.—Janice M
    I just received this tea in this quarter's herbal tea club box, and it is the first hibiscus blend that I have ever actually liked. It tastes a bit like a tart kool-aid. I haven't tried it iced yet, but I expect it to be great. One note if your blood pressure is low like mine: I got moderate headaches with both cups that I've drank so far (I admittedly brewed them stronger than directed). This might be related to the hibiscus's side effect of lowering blood pressure. I think a BP drop caused by the tea might have triggered the headaches and mild lightheadedness (similar to what happens when you stand up too fast after sitting for a long time). Both cleared up within an hour of drinking the tea. I doubt this is common in most people, but I thought I would mention it. I plan to brew this weaker than I typically would in the future (the flavor is really strong, so I'm sure it will still taste good thinner) and maybe limit how much I drink in a single day.—Anna
    I purchased a sample and I just tried it today. It's "berry" flavorful and with a heaping teaspoon (as suggested) I was able to get two cups by resteeping it. I added a little sugar but it doesn't really need it. Two thumbs up! —Lorna08
    love this tea!!—allie
    I love this tea... the color, the aroma, the taste, the name. I bought it because of the name. I will buy it again. IT IS AWESOME.. I cannot say enough about it. I am speechless. it is so good.—D McCraw
    This is such an amazing tea! It's delicious hot or cold, which is good in case you forget you have it lying around.... :) I recommend this tea to everyone I know who drinks tea, and even those that don't. It's probably my favorite tea. Strawberry Fields forever!—Andrea
    I can honestly say that this is an absolutely luscious tea. It contains few carbohydrates, but it tastes very similar to a great fruit juice, wich has as many carbohydrates and sugar as Coca-cola. —Jen
    This tea is like fresh jam in liquid form. Its amazing warm or cold! The cranberries and currants provide depth, while the raspberry and strawberry provide some brightness!—Mel
    Amazing tea! Smells and tastes delicious. I brewed as an iced tea. Love that it has no caffeine. WIll definitely purchase again.—Stacy
    Wonderful tea! Very bold berry flavor, and a little goes a long way. I couldn't believe how dark the brew turned out with just a few bits of dried berries. Doesn't even need any sweetener. Hands down, the best herbal tea I've had, and I'm totally getting more when I use up my sample.—Lindsay Mack
    I've been buying this lovely fruit tea from Teaspot for 5 years, and making iced tea for all the kids and their friends. Now everyone asks for it, and it's our specialty!—Marcia Willis
