Damn this tea smells exactly like the real thing. I can just close my eyes and imagine that I’m about to take a bite of my mother’s strawberry rhubarb crumble. The taste is surprisingly authentic as well, as I can clearly taste the sweet strawberries and the tart rhubarb on my tongue, although I keep thinking it should be sweeter. There’s even a slightly spicy hint of the ‘crumble’ part of the dessert though it’s pretty mild compared to the fruit flavours. I agree with the other people who said that this tea would be improved with a different base though, as I’m not sure the white tea really does much for this blend.

EDIT: Not bad on the resteep (@5:30) either though the cinnamon-y/bakey notes are stronger with the fruit flavours playing a lesser role.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
