1112 Tasting Notes
I rarely select this to drink, and that is sad.
I rarely select it because it’s so… unassuming. It looks like a pretty plain green, smells like nothing special, and… rhubarb, really? (I know some people are really into making pies out of rhubarb and whatnot but I’ve never done that okay it sounds weird without personal experience.)
But that is sad because every time I actually have this tea, I quite enjoy it! The flavor isn’t in-your-face, but it’s the kind of subtleness that you really notice so long as you take your time with it. (And really, what is tea if not an excuse to relax?) I’m not sure if it reminds me of any of the individual ingredients, which either means they blend together well or that it’s super rhubarb-y and I just don’t know because I’ve never had that one. Or both? There’s a slight sweetness, enough to make me feel like sweetening is unnecessary but not so much that it seems like I’m drinking dessert — which is a great quality for a fruit tea to have, if you ask me.
A nice cup to relax with!
Another one bites the dust… which is to say that I’m done with my two ounces of this and I won’t be missing it. I did manage to get more flavor by steeping more of it at once, but unfortunately it wasn’t much of an improvement — the flavors began to taste more artificial as they got stronger. And still no caramel, just pear and honey. Could be worse, sure, but I’m not a fan.
