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

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.

JustJames

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.

JustJames

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

Aimee Popovacki

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

scribbles

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.

Aimee Popovacki

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

The last few teas I’ve tried from Davids have been a letdown, but I gotta say I’m pretty impressed with this one! I iced it and though the sip starts out tart, the strawberry sweetness soon takes over. But I think it’s the hint of creaminess from the yogurt that really makes it shine. I’m not sure how I’d feel about this hot, but iced it reminds me of a more creamy and dessert-y tasting strawberry lemonade.

I’m tempted to add some tea leaves to it (cause sometimes you just want legit iced tea, ya know?), but I don’t want to ruin it. Has anyone ever tried doing this with tisanes?

Preparation
Iced
JustJames

i have. not this one, i did the dragonwell…. my experience is if it’s fruity it works well in a cold steep. i usually add a caffeine tea just for a bit of a punch. pinch of baking soda makes it smooth. it’s a choose-your-own-adventure!

Alysha

In that case I’ll definitely have to try it out. I’m curious about the baking soda!

JustJames

baking soda is amphoteric which i learned just a little while ago while we discussed cold steeping. it means that depending on whether it’s with an acid or a base it will take or lend a molecule which is how it tones down harsh teas (which you notice especially in iced tea). this same property takes some of the acidity out of high tannic acid teas.

depending on your tastes maybe chuck in a simple black tea for that iced tea baseline? the soda goes in after it’s all set =0)

Alysha

That’s pretty interesting; thanks for the info! I’ll have to try that out next time I cold brew!

Davids is definitely my new FAVORITE TEA SHOP!!!! I have not had one tea that I did not care for by them. Their flavored blacks have such a good quality leaf that they all turn out tasty.

SO…I decided to put this in my glass tumbler that I recently purchased from Mandala Tea. Filled with 208 degree water and just let it sit. Took it with me to go out and it sat for about 2 hours. Never went bitter.

The smell of this before brewing is a strong strawberry. The taste is a nice blend of strawberry and a tart rhubarb. The yogurt makes it all creamy and yummy! The nice thing is that the strawberry doesn’t taste artificial!

I would like a little more dept to this so I might try blending it with something else – maybe Red Velvet Cake. I’d really like to try the crumble one now. I do like having straight herbals on hand though so that I can just throw it in my glass tumbler and not worry about oversteeping.

Boiling 8 min or more

Definite sweetness on the sip. I am generally quite sensitive to hibiscus aftertaste but the hibiscus in this one seems to be blended quite nicely and only gives a tart edge that you would normally to expect to accompany strawberries. I am detecting some earthiness from the beetroot and I don’t feel that it compliments the flavour profile very well.

As the tea cools, I am noticing an unpleasant blunt edge to the tartness which carries throughout the tea taste.

As I am able to take larger sips, I am starting to feel the hibiscus creeping through the flavour a bit more. There is a dairy-type taste present as well which I am guessing is the result of the yogurt bits in the brew.

Overall, a nice blend of flavours. The tartness mixes in nicely and is in no way overwhelming the blend. It gives me a bit of a “zinger” type sensation on the back of my tongue and creeping into my throat.

The second infusion was cold-steeped overnight. The hibiscus seems more prominent giving the brew a sour-bitter taste. I’m detecting some floral-type notes as well.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Sipdown!

Got this as a sample from DT couple of weeks ago and I’ve been wanting to try it ever since.

Upon steeping, the color of the liquid is intensely red. Taste wise it’s yummy although quite tart. I can taste the strawberry and hibiscus the most.

This is one of those tisanes that I have to be in a mood for and today was not a good day. I should have known, but my curiosity took over. I’ll refrain from rating for now.

TheTeaFairy

Oh, I thought this was discontinued…Guess they revived it or maybe I’m just confused…That’s more likely, lol!

One of my good friends got me a pack of this for my birthday, and if it wasn’t for her, I probably would not try this one because I am very selective of herbal teas because they are not my favourite (except for Cocomint Cream <3). The smell of this tea is very nice, I definately get the strawberries. At first sip it is very tart, I actually had to sweeten this one. I normally do not sweeten my teas, especially not herbals! Once sweetened it is pretty descent. I actually prefer this one iced. Overall this is an alright tea but I probably will not repurchase this one, but I am glad I got to try it.

Cavocorax

Hmmmm that’s good to know. The other reviews made this sound so wonderfully amazing that I thought I should try some, but PERHAPS I should go for cocomint cream first. :P

Drunk From Tea

Oh my goodness, I definitely reccomend cocomint cream. I have some steeping in a cup beside me right now and I am SO excited to drink it (:

Ichabod

amen on the cocomint!

This is ok. I made it iced. Enjoyable, but there are definitely herbal blends that I enjoy more. It is definitely rhubarb with that tart hibiscus. The strawberry is there as well, but I find it to be more in the background

Got this one iced today, since I was downtown and had forgotten my little tea kit at home (I usually carry tea, bags or a mesh ball, and an empty mug!).

Ooh, this is good! Reminds me of the stewed rhubarb one of my grammas used to make, with tapioca and strawberry Jello. There’s a decent vanilla presence in this tea as well, which must be the yogurt creaminess they say is in here.

Once I sip down the new fruit teas I got today, I will probably get some of this one!

Lilysmom

I don’t know how I missed trying this one. Must try soon! Which new fruit teas did you get?

OMGsrsly

Herbal Republic/Teaz: Nana’s Fruit Garden and Harmonizing Tulsi.
Granville Island: Lemon Myrtle and Lemon Mango. I’m hesitant about the lemon mango though because out of the market it smells like one of those “hibiscus takes over” fruity blends. Should still be OK iced and sweetened.

Amariel

I like this one, in moderation, because of the hibiscus, but it is pretty good. I have a small amount at
home.

I thought I would love this when I smelled the dry leaf. It was sweet and bright and fruity scented, and strawberry rhubarb is one of my all time favourite combos. I also loved the strawberry rhubarb crumble white blend from a few years back, so this one seemed like a no brainer.

I had it iced, and felt pretty meh about the whole thing. The strawberry comes through nicely, and the hibiscus is well done as other people have said. But I don’t get a lot of rhubarb flavour and there’s this weird, sickly, almost sour dairy note that really hit me in the face on my first sip, which I can only imagine is the yogurt chips. I’ve never had a blend with them before so I can’t be positive they’re what’s causing it, but something is tasting seriously unpleasant.

The more I drank of it the less I noticed the weird taste, but it was still there lingering in the background. Too bad, I was looking forward to this. It was also much improved with some agave! I’m glad so many people are enjoying it, but I must just be the odd one out :P
