Taster’s Review:

Mmm!  I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before, but I haven’t ever had rhubarb (except for rhubarb flavored teas) … at least, not to my recollection.  I am pretty sure that I’ve never had Strawberry Rhubarb pie.  But if this Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Flavored Honeybush from 52Teas is any indication of what I’m missing, I think I need to try some soon!

This is really tasty!  The nutty, sweet flavor of the honeybush is not a strong, distinct flavor but, I do notice it, and it melds nicely with the slightly buttery taste of the tisane … giving it a sort of freshly baked pastry shell kind of flavor.

The strawberry tastes sweet … in fact, it might be a tad too sweet for me to say that it tastes of authentic strawberry … it tastes a bit more like a glazed strawberry or like the strawberries that my gramma would mash with sugar for strawberry shortcake.  There is a tart note to this too, but it isn’t that “berry tart” … so I can only presume that the tartness comes from the rhubarb.  The aftertaste imparts a slight “berry tingle” on the tip of my tongue.

I find that I like the fruit taste here … it is smooth, sweet and delicious.  It doesn’t really POP as a strawberry flavor … the strawberry is more of a smooth, soft flavor, and again, I can only presume this is due to the rhubarb presence.  But I do find this to be an enjoyable tisane, one that is nice to sip later in the evening when I want something sweet and dessert-like.  I like this one … it’s not my favorite from 52Teas, but, I’m enjoying it.
