From DAVIDsTEA

Picture parfait
The ancient Chinese used it in medicine. The medieval Europeans traded for it along the Silk Road. And today we love it in pies, sauces, muffins or just plain, dipped in a little sugar. But the best way to eat rhubarb is with sweet, ripe strawberries. Like in this refreshingly fruity, deep red tisane. It tastes as bright and juicy as a fresh-picked berry, with a tart rhubarb punch and a subtle hint of yogurt creaminess. We love it hot or iced, or as the base for sweet, zippy sangria. Now that’s a beautiful thing. Caffeine-free.

Ingredients: Apple, hibiscus, raisins, carrot, yogurt bits, beetroot, strawberry, rhubarb, artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: dairy

Had this iced with my lunch this morning :)
Much much better iced than hot! Very tart, but it does have that yoghurt-y taste to it. Definitely taste the strawberries and the yoghurt :) And it did have a very opaque/metallic shimmer to it which I love! I’ve poured about half of my cold brew into my kleen kanteen to entertain myself through my 6hour day today :)

I had the exact same experience. This is definitely a “cold brew ONLY” tea.

This tea was sitting in the cupboard at the office – Bonnie picked up a whole pile of new teas David’s Tea over the weekend.

I was able to get through about half a cup. A little bit too sweet for my taste but I can see drinking it iced in the summer.

I love the way this tea smells, almost like candy. And then when I had my first sip I was surprised at the tart rhubarb accent to the sweet strawberry taste. A great tea for spring and plan to make a cold brew for the fridge.

Aaaand sipdown! I’m meeting up with my tea mule tomorrow and will be getting my orders from Nina’s Paris and Golden Moon, so I’m trying to deplete my stash. I think I can probably sip down another 3 teas tomorrow, thank goodness!

Anyways, I sweetened this one with a spoonful of honey and was very happy with the sweet dregs of the mug. I’m glad I got to try this one, but I’m also happy that I’ve finished it off. No restock for me.

Time for a herbal or I’ll never sleep tonight. Aroma dry is lovely, fruity, creamy with a little hibiscus. It is the rhubarb substitute I guess, since there is no actual rhubarb. Brewed it is still a lovely aroma, smelling like memories of a summer day. (Apparently a very distant memory, since they say it is supposed to snow tonight) The taste is sweet with a little tartness but well balanced. Enjoyable tea that I might actually go out and buy instead of counting on NayLynn in her very generous swaps! Thanks Naylynn! :)

Was a long day, putting together our new dinning room set up that only took 3 hours. Putting the chairs together should not have taken that long, I blame the tiny allan wrench they supplied. Its going to look so good in the new house :) I also purchased a Breville variable temperature kettle! Finally!! Was on sale for $99! I can not wait to try it, my man is making me wait to use it in the new house.

Tonight I am craving something sweet so I thought I shall try my sample of this. Smells way better then I expected. It steeps to a dark red/pink colour. Would look so nice in a class mug. The smell steeped reminds me of a strong tasting strawberry ice-cream. Wow my man would love this tea! He will eat anything that has strawberries in it. This would be a great iced tea, I will have to remember to get some more to try it in the summer.
At first it is very tart but a good tart thankfully to give it that rhubarb flavour. Strawberry flavour is growing on me after each sip. At first the strawberry is artificial, but the after taste is more natural. For once I actually like the yogurt bites. Its not too much but just enough where it resembles ice cream. mmmmm and ice cream is my favourite dessert. This just keeps getting better. But you need to be in the mood for something sweet to drink this.

It tasted really good iced at the store. Like a parfait exactly. Bought a sample package, and I mysteriously don’t like it anymore.

I had a packet of this from an online order so I decided to go for it!

I found it was pretty nice in general, though it was quite heavy on the hibiscus and therefore went quite bitter and tart. Perhaps the tart was from the rhubarb, but either way it could have been a lot more balanced.

The yogurt bits also weirded me out…. >.

I can’t seem to bring myself to like this tea! It doesn’t matter how many times I try it, or what I try it in. Every time I drink it, it leaves an overwhelming strawberry taste in the back of my mouth that is so tart I can’t stand it. I will literally drink a different tea just to wash the flavour out of my mouth. Despite its popularity, I definitely give it two thumbs down!

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.
