From 52teas

A quick note before we get to this week’s Tea of the Week: You might want to keep an eye on our In-Stock page over the next week. We are reviving each of the 12 Teas of Christmas, one each day between now and Christmas Eve. If you were lucky enough to get one of our 12 Teas of Christmas samplers this year and the samples are making you want more, you can pick up some pouches while they last. If you didn’t get a sampler, you might still see something you missed or want more of.

As for this week’s tea, imagine homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, encased in a delicious buttery pastry, full of sweet strawberries and tangy rhubarb. Now imagine that in a comforting mug or icy tumbler full of caffeine- and calorie-free honeybush. Can you imagine it? Well, you don’t have to imagine it, you can order it now. =)

Our Tea of the Week for the week of December 17, 2012

OOOOH YHEHAAAH Strawberry rhubarb pie tea! Lets rock this!

DRY: juicy strawberry with that funky honeybush smell? I think it’s the honeybush, the same smell is in my peanut butter cup cheesecake tea. Nice lumps of freeze fried strawberries!

STEEPED: Fruity and kinda buttery smell. Light brown tea.

TASTE: Very nice natural strawberry flavor with crust taste. The aftertaste is slightly tart rhubarb and butteryness. The crust and buttery flavor is close to the Peanut Buttercup cheesecake tea, could also be like graham crust taste too.
This tea is not that tart, its just in the aftertaste and it’s pleasant, like rhubarb pie, ya?

Sweetened with a bit of rock sugar, the strawberry is sweet like pie, yay, and the buttery crust is present. Not as tart, very slight, could pass for just strawberry pie here.

COMMENTS: I’d love to try this iced – overall, I prefer this tea unsweetened. I was scared this would of been a tart fest, but turned out very well! Happy to have another solid caffeine free tea in my cupboard.

Thanks Sil for swapping this with me :)

Another honeybush I’m enjoying. The flavouring seems pretty subtle. I’m getting some rhubarb tartness but I’m not so sure how much strawberry I’m tasting. Either way I’m enjoying the taste of honeybush haha!

Perhaps I don’t have enough experience with honeybush quite yet to make nay major distinctions between the flavours.

Courtney sent me a little sample of this one, too. I thought I’d try the rhubarb ones together, to see which I preferred.

Honestly, I think I liked Rhubarb Cream better. This one smells floral-y to me, which really isn’t doing it for me at all. Especially since I have been having major allergy issues today and can’t seem to stop sneezing.

It tastes nice, though. Sweet and tart, and honeybush-y… but I don’t really get much PIE from it. Totally not complaining, though, because I like the strawberry rhubarb part a lot. Yum.

1 tablespoon for 375ml of water
Infused for 8 minutes

Flavour is quite bland on the sip. I’m detecting mostly the waxy flavour of the honeybush. Mild stawberry flavour near the end of the sip. There is a definite hint of pie crust taste near the end of the sip as well. Only a faint hint of rhubarb flavour/tartness.

Thanks to Sil for sharing this with me!

Unwinding from seeing Django Unchained which was classic Tarentino and really fun so I thought I’d give my new honeybush tea a try. Dry the leaves smell very strawberry, maybe it is the big chunks of freeze dried berry. The wet leaves smell similar but not as strong.

I brewed for 5 min with boiling water. The elixir has more notes of what I think is rhubarb in the aroma. The initial taste is berry and juicy somehow with later notes of rhubarb and lingering buttery and sweet notes. It is better as it cools and I can pick up more notes. It will probably be very good iced.

This is a well balanced blend which really allows you to enjoy the strawberry and rhubarb combination. I drink all my teas straight and with the Honeybush base there is absolutely no need to add any sweetness as it is perfect as is. You definitely feel like you are drinking in a warm strawberry rhubarb pie … without the guilt!

Well, I can’t say I’ve had much, if any at all, rhubarb in my life. My mother did not make this pie growing up and I’m not a pie maker myself. I can taste the strawberry in this and what I can only assume is the rhubarb as a weird undertaste to the strawberry. I can see how some people would really like this, but I just don’t. There is nothing wrong with this tea, I just don’t like it. I’ll try for strawberry again tomorrow with my Walter Bishop tea.
