Strawberries and champagne

At my Strawberry tea this week I served a very special tea--Teavana's Strawberry Blush Rose Oolong. 

Teavana's website describes the tea as follows:

"This French-inspired flavored oolong tea features luscious strawberries, pink rose buds, crisp rhubarb, white grapes, soft vanilla, and a hint of bubbly champagne. Deliciously romantic, it's a sumptuous combination that sparkles on the palate, conjuring up dreamy days ambling along Épernay's rolling vineyards and valleys.

Lush strawberry and soft rose sparkle in perfect balance alongside vibrant notes of white grape"

I think my roses and strawberry teapot is a good match for this tea.

This tea has so much going on!  It is very floral, with light fruity taste as well.  You can definitely taste the roses, but they are in perfect balance with the rest of the flavors.  As you can see in the picture above, there are fairly big pieces of dried strawberries, rhubarb and grapes mixed in with the tea leaves. 

The tea is very light and even slightly pink. 


  1. What a beautiful tea you served today. Love the visit. Your china is stunning. Blessings, Martha

  2. The scent of roses in tea , along with the fruit ...sounds heavenly ! I am thinking this would be a perfect tea for an autumn tea. ( again, love the table topper ! )


Thank you so much for your comment! I hope you have a wonderful day :)
