Although the name sounds exotic, the Strawberry Daiquiri was developed by an American expat, living in Cuba.  Jennings Cox was a mining engineer.  Rumor has it he ran out of gin to entertain his guests, so switched to the local rum.  He named his concoction of strawberries, coconut, and rum  after a small village near his house.  Daquiri was the site of a famous battle, when the US and Cuba fought side by side.  The allies routed Spanish Troops stationed there in 1898, before moving on to capture the nearby city of Santiago.

In recognition of this international cocktail staple, we've developed this Strawberry Daquiri receipe. We've blended a high grown Ceylon with all natural flavorings and created a tea with notes of full-bodied strawberry, undertones of sweet rum, and hints of fresh coconut. Brew it up hot with a dash of sugar and splash of milk to open up the subtleties of the flavoring. Like your tea cold? Pour the hot brew over a tall glass of ice for a real summer treat. Either way this one is superb.

The organic compliant natural flavors in our teas are extracts from organic fruits, vegetables and herbs. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavors do not mask the natural taste of high grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavored tea is to use overpowering artificial flavors, which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavors do not leave an aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavors tend to be somewhat 'soft ' and the flavors slightly muted, but for many this is a refreshing change and one of the desired attributes of our naturally flavored teas.


BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with boiling water for 3-7 minutes.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 5 minutes.  Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher.  Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 5 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves.  Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.

NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves.  Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion.  Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
