I’m just about finished cold brewing this.

Dry – I LOVE the way it smells! Juicy yet Creamy Strawberry and Rhubarb! I love the Strawberry and Rhubarb Combination of flavors with/no/in almost anything!

Cold Brewed this is refreshing yet not overly flavorful. Much like my first attempt I jotted down earlier it makes a great flavored water but I’m missing a lot of that POW from the actual tea.

Again – not bad tasting – just not overly flavorful tea-wise. I will hold off the rate this until I try it hot!

What I can taste – is nice! The Green tea first followed by gentle hints of Strawberry and Rhubarb.

OH!! I took a gulp and can now taste the rhubarb paired with a lovely creaminess! Perhaps this is a chugging Cold Brew??

Looking forward to the HOT version.

For future cold brews with my new Steep & Go I think I am going to jam-pack as much as I can in my stick and do it that way…

I kind of sucked this one down a bit quickly. I didn’t realize how thirsty I was!

I couldn’t decide if I wanted it hot or cold, so I went with cold. I was afraid my water temperature was a bit too high, and it somewhat tastes that way, the green tea is just a touch on the brisk side, but doesn’t taste too bad.

This isn’t bad, I thought a strawberry rhubarb tea would be awesome but I don’t think I think too highly of rhubarb. I will not give up on you though, rhubarb, you have too awesome a name.

It has a bit of a strawberry rhubarb pie taste to it. It’s sweet like you’d expect from macerated strawberries. I think I may like it better hot, so that was a failure on my part to try it cold first, but I also wanted to be able to drink it immediately.

This is one of those teas that really benefits from a lower steeping temperature.

This is in my shopping cart with The Tea Spot! :)

I did a tea cupboard inventory a few nights ago, emptying all 3 shelves, & documenting everything in my tea journal by tea-type. This is an unusually left brain activity for me, but needed to be done. In the process I came across a tin of this tea that I had forgotten about. I don’t recall being that thrilled with it before (which explains why it was in the back), but I’ll have to give it another try, at a lower brew temp!

Although I am a fan of both Sencha & Dragonwell, this tea was just so-so for me. It smells wonderful, but…meh…really it’s just that when it comes to green teas, I’m pretty much a purest, with the exception of jasmine.

I’ll try cold brewing it next time, maybe I’ll like it more that way…

LiberTEAS

I like this one much better iced … and it’s especially nice when brewed with the steep and go do-hicky.

Terri HarpLady

That’s what I’m thinking. Here’s the funny thing: Tony picked me up to go shoot pool, & I was about half-way through the cup & just left it sitting. I came back home a couple hours later, & drank it, & it was better! I mean, it was never bad, to begin with, just not that exciting hot. Cooled down, I liked it. So looks like a cold brew is in order! :D

Terri HarpLady

So I did cold brew some, & it’s ok. I’m not finding myself all that interested in drinking it, but today is a slightly cooler day (nothing like the weather in Canada, of course), leading me to prefer hot teas.

I am drinking this cold-brewed today using my handy-dandy new filtering spigot tool called “Steep & Go” (also from The Tea Spot). It is really good. It does not need sweetening, it has a mild sweetness all on its own. The strawberry flavor is especially noticeable in the aftertaste with that berry tingly sensation that I can feel and taste. The rhubarb gives a little tartness to the drink while the strawberry gives a very pleasant sweet berry taste. The green tea is mild and refreshing.

Nice! I’ll be reviewing this as a hot tea later, and I think I’ll hold off on the numeric rating until then.

mmm another one from terri’s tea box! I will get through these someday lol! I’m actually pretty proud of myself…i think i’m down to the last 10 or so of the 70+ she sent.

This is a pretty decent green tea. The flavouring is really subtle but it adds to the green instead of overwhelming or taking away from it. I can get behind this one for sure :) thanks terri!

Wow, this one is unpopular on Steepster. I didn’t expect that since it’s one of the Tea Spot’s signature blends and top sellers, but you can never tell. I received this as a free sample with my last Tea Spot order. This tea intrigued me because I love rhubarb, but I am not really a fan of strawberries in any form (including flavoring) other than fresh, so I wasn’t jumping to try it. But I get to anyway, I guess!

The dry leaf smells pretty candy-ish, but at least in a way that smells like the flavors it claims (sweet strawberry and tart rhubarb) instead of some generic fruit candy flavor. At first I thought of strawberries, but as I smelled it more I was more convinced of a rhubarb aroma. Steeped it smells like a pretty good blend of the two, with some underlying creamy notes. Some people are getting vanilla, but me, not so much… it actually reminds me more of these odd rhubarb and custard hard candies I bought in England one time.

The flavors remain pretty candy-ish and give the sensation of being sweet even if the tea itself is not sweet. I do get some of the fresh, slightly grassy, somewhat buttery dragonwell in the main part of the sip. The whole thing really does remind me of a strawberry-rhubarb pie when you cook down the fruit in sugar and it gets almost painfully sweet. All in all I enjoy it much more than most people here, though I won’t be needing to buy any more once I’m done with my sample.

Thank you DHart1215 for this Sample!

My daughter and grandchildren came over this evening to cool off in my pool (a plan I had when I moved in to my condo to ensure more family visits!). The teens watched the younger boys while my daughter Annalisa and I had time alone to chat and drink tea.

I was careful not to steep the tea too long. An earlier test had gone wrong and produced a bitter brew at 3.5 minutes. An adjustment to 2 minutes was just right.

Taste:
The scent and flavor is fruity and sweet but light. I didn’t taste any rhubarb which would have been warm, almost peachy and a little sour (rhubarb is hard to discribe). Even the strawberry was not very berry.
I’m not saying that the tea lacked fruitiness…there is strawberry and it tastes nice but it’s light.

Adding sweetening helps intensify the strawberry flavor.

When the tea cooled, the flavor changed. There was astringency from the green tea (which was not a bother), and a sour note that was what I would expect from rhubarb. With the strawberry flavor, this was better tasting cold than it was hot.

Some like it hot. I like it cold!

Boulder Blues – The Tea Spot – 2/5/14
2 minutes, 175 degrees.

Strawberry Rhubarb? Well it certainly smells like pie innards. I put some sugar in (as I usually do) but I took a sip before stirring and it’s actually still quite nice. Not entirely to my taste but nice. After stirring, the flavours come out more, especially the rhubarb. I wish it had been the strawberry instead because rhubarb is not my favourite thing but alas. The green base is both subdued and sharp at the same time in several different places in the sip. I can taste it in my cheeks after the sip, somewhat metallic, and during it is quite mellow, allowing the rhubarb to come forth.

I know what you mean about tasting the aftertaste in your cheeks…great way to put it!

Another from the teabox B… I really don’t get the name of this blend. The flavor tasted to me just like a typical green tea but as it cooled there were HINTS of something fruity and HINTS of something creamy. Not terrible though!

I like to alternate between black and green teas in the morning so as not to over-caffeinate myself. This was what I chose for my morning green. The leaves smell rather sweet, they are quite long dragonwell leaves.

In taste, I get a sweet rhubarb, but not much strawberry or pure vanilla flavor. The dragonwell base comes through strong in this one and the fruit is more of an aftertaste. I smell the vanilla and strawberry in the wet leaf, but just don’t taste it. This is a decent cup, I’m glad to have tried some. Thank you Jaime for sending some my way.

Good plan! I used to say caffeine never bothered me, but I had a stretch where I had 8 cups of 1st infusion black tea several days in a row and I did not feel good after a while.
