This tea is on the Last Chance DavidsTEA page! Nooo! I have nice memories of drinking this tea with my dad on christmas! Sucks to discontinue a tea, but I do like Strawberry Rhubarb combos, so I’ll search for other similar teas.
I did a blog review with pics – http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/strawberry-rhubarb-crumble-from-davidstea-tea-review/ another Owly pic!
mmmm, I haven’t had this one in awhile, as I’ve been unable to open the tin!
The tin of this got dented a bit during my move. Usually, when I want this tea, I’ll try to open it briefly, give up and move onto another tea as I have lots of options. insane tea stash ftw!
This morning I tried really hard to open it and it took a couple minutes. It was sealed pretty good as the scent of this tea hit me hard with the strawberry, spicy and tart.
This cup seems more on the rhubarby tart side – it’s not awful tart but just enough for me to enjoy. The strawberry here is very good and natural tasting. Yum! Hope this tea doesn’t disappear off DT’s online site.
How the heck did I not drink any tea until 5:21pm today!
Well, I was at the Oxnard strawberry festival here in California. I ate lots, but not enough to try everything I wanted to try. I wanted to try the strawberry nachos, strawberry pizza, and deepfried strawberries but I just couldn’t pack it all in, plus all that walking and sun involved.
Anyways, they had a killer “Build your own shortcake” tent which I went crazy on http://awkwardsoul.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/img_4238.jpg which was totally worth getting full on.
Any tea? One foodstall was selling sun tea, and one shop vendor had loose leaf tea blends, but I was a little scared off as the teas where just in big bowls on a table with no cover, right in the open for people to smell.
Anyways, I get home, with a flat of perfectly ripe strawberries, realized I am sun burnt (I’m still very used to living in rainy Vancouver, thinking sun is in limited supply, thus cannot burn me) and haven’t had any tea yet today! Of course, lets go for a strawberry tea, because I’m not strawberried out yet!
I’m very sad this tea is discontinued, it’s decent and different enough. Yeah, DT has another strawberry rhubarb, but they don’t have a crumble. Maybe bring it back with blueberry instead.
