drank Rhubarb Cream Soda by DAVIDsTEA
2870 tasting notes
I thought I had written a tasting note for this one from the Discovery teabox! Darn it. Thanks to whomever included it. To be honest, the leaves here have a stale scent which I don’t usually notice in teas, so I will take that into consideration. I also can’t really envision what a Rhubarb Cream Soda would be like. I have a problem with some Davidstea’s being full of apple chunks and yet are supposed to taste completely different from apple (like chocolate in other teas?). I don’t notice too much rhubarb in this blend, but there are many small ingredients in my sample and not all of them are apple or rhubarb. The flavor isn’t exactly rhubarb, really just a tartness with a hint of cream. I’m sure it’s much better fresh, but also deserved much more rhubarb in the blend itself. At least the hibiscus doesn’t overpower. I’m glad I was able to try it, as it looks like it’s retiring!

Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // just boiled // 6 minute steep

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
