OOOOH YHEHAAAH Strawberry rhubarb pie tea! Lets rock this!

DRY: juicy strawberry with that funky honeybush smell? I think it’s the honeybush, the same smell is in my peanut butter cup cheesecake tea. Nice lumps of freeze fried strawberries!

STEEPED: Fruity and kinda buttery smell. Light brown tea.

TASTE: Very nice natural strawberry flavor with crust taste. The aftertaste is slightly tart rhubarb and butteryness. The crust and buttery flavor is close to the Peanut Buttercup cheesecake tea, could also be like graham crust taste too.
This tea is not that tart, its just in the aftertaste and it’s pleasant, like rhubarb pie, ya?

Sweetened with a bit of rock sugar, the strawberry is sweet like pie, yay, and the buttery crust is present. Not as tart, very slight, could pass for just strawberry pie here.

COMMENTS: I’d love to try this iced – overall, I prefer this tea unsweetened. I was scared this would of been a tart fest, but turned out very well! Happy to have another solid caffeine free tea in my cupboard.

Profile

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
