One of my favorite tea blends I’ve gotten so far as an Adagio rep is their strawberry white tea. Very fruity and low in caffeine, this tea smells and tastes great. I am a big fan of white teas, for their flavor and relaxing properties. I love a tea that I can drink any time of day without worry!
Ingredients: White Tea, Rooibos Tea, Apple Pieces, Hibiscus, Blueberries, Natural Strawberry Flavor, Strawberries, Blue Cornflowers, Rose Petals & Natural Vanilla Flavor.
Lore: Strawberries are indigenous to both the northern and southern hemispheres. They are first mentioned in the writings of Cato, a famed Roman Senator. In the 12th Century, however, they were declared unfit to eat. The reason given? Strawberries grow too close to the ground, and are contaminated by the snakes and toads that may have touched them. Thankfully, this proscription had since been lifted, and strawberries are safe (and legal) to eat once again.
Not only is this tea fruity, but it’s also sweet without any sugar or calories. It’s great hot, but was also really tasty when I let it cool down and drank it cold. It will make an excellent iced tea when it gets hot outside. It’s a true treat.
