It is stinking hot in Toronto, and I have not been drinking any hot tea’s since yesterday morning. My tea related beverages that I have been drinking recently have all been cold brewed, including this one. I have a few others on the go, since this stifling heat won’t be letting up in the next couple of days.

It is tart. I am so over tart tea’s. I don’t like it, and find myself reaching for sugar or some other type of sweetener. I had purchased from IKEA Lingonberry syrup and added it to this cold brew, so it no longer tastes like strawberry parfait – it tastes like the Lingonberry syrup. Strawberry parfait is drinkable to me this way, but it is no longer strawberry nor parfait. But it’s cold and refreshing on this stinking humid day.

oh no! it’s muggy here, but nice and cool in the evenings. i find the longer i wait for my butiki and verdant orders the more mundane everything else tastes.

I saw your recent comment, I think it was about this tea…but is true, I am getting particular about what I drink! I am very surprised!! The more tea one drinks, the more sophisticated one’s palette becomes. I still like dessert tea’s, but I like sweet…not sour. Have never enjoyed fruit desserts, so I should have reasoned that I would not like tart fruit teas.

tastes also change in surprising ways… no harm in trying things over again! xoxo

i used to really love this tea.. when it first came out.. but the tartness of it is offputting to me this time around.. i think my tastes have changed, and its just not a favorite anymore

For some reason, I had this idea in my head that this would taste like a strawberry sundae. I don’t know why I thought this. I will finish it, with added sugar or syrup, but it will not be a re-purchase.

in theory it should taste like a sundae! … i definitely added almond milk to mine to make it a little less tart.. it helped but its still not the best

Bio

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
