Since I reviewed Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble, I decided I had to drink Parfait and compare directly.
parfait is super bright red a gorgeous color really. The smell both dry and steeped is very odd, fruity, bit with a sour tang. It’s the yogurt. I find the yogurt smell offputting, it smells almost over ripe…
Luckily, the taste, well this cup wasn’t overwhelmed by it.
I’ve found this blend to be fairly inconsistent. I have it where there was a lot of yogurt bits, enough to see white flecks on the top of the tea.
Luckily this time I can not see any, however I can still taste the plain yougurt flavor, which leaves this weird aftertaste….
Ignoring that, the tea is very tart, tasting mostly of hibiscus, with a sourness that I can’t tell if it is meant to be strawberry or rhubarb…
Sweetened with Stevia
First, the tartness is greatly reduced (obviously!). The tea doesn’t taste specifically like strawberry or rhubarb though….
It now just tastes like sweetened hibiscus.
This tea is always a big disappointment for me. It doesn’t taste like strawberry or rhubarb.
