Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
Anna Marie’s started in 1994 by our family in Historic Downtown Liberty, Missouri. Our family’s love for tea has taken us down many roads. Monthly Themed Tea Parties and Private Tea Parties are hosted in Al & Brenda’s 1913 historical Liberty home. We simply love to drink good premium tea and really enjoy watching others relax & connect over their tea cups at our tea parties. Most of our hobbies include drinking tea, spending time with our family & tea friends, and caring for our community.
We continually search for the finest quality premium teas from around the world and seek continued tea education to provide the most up to date knowledge of the health benefits as well as the FUN of enjoying the tea drinking life style.
I love a company with personality and this store has it, even with the pictures of TEAm members on the store page and the fact that they donate their time to help a local organization that helps provide much needed assistance to homeless families in their community. Check out their webpage for more information and maybe you can get involved as well.

Whole Leaf Black Tea
COSTS: $5.00 – $18.50
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
From Anna Tea Shop: Whole leaf black tea blended with strawberry bits and cream flavoring. Strawberry Cream Black Tea is a full bodied flavor with subtle notes of strawberries.
Tea Pairing: Fruits and Strawberry Cream Black Tea pair very well together. Deliciously enjoyed as a hot tea or a fruity summertime iced tea. Pairs with a summer salad or even stronger flavors of a hearty sandwich.
Prior to brew: I expected a strong strawberry scent however it was more vegetal.
Brewed: I started using a new strainer when brewing my tea and it leaves little pieces that escape, it does not bother me and does not hinder the flavor of the tea.
Scent: There is an ever so slight strawberry scent.
Flavor: As with the scent a very slight strawberry flavor as it’s a very mild tea.
Sentiments: I’m not sure if I just got a weak version of this brew or if this is the actual flavoring of it. The tea is a very very mild scented strawberry tea, less strawberry more of a soft bland tea.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “6“.
