Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge – May Tea #2: – A strawberry tea
Finishing this one up! I think it was my second or third favorite from Pudtea. Though now the blackberry leaves are tending to take over the flavor a bit. I wonder if that happens when they get older. I didn’t really notice that there is strawberries AND raspberries the first time around. Now it’s just a hint of strawberry under the blackberry leaf. THAT SECOND STEEP THOUGH. Perfection. The right mix of tart and sweet. Couldn’t have been better. Raising the rating from 92.

An Ode to Tea, E is for Eton Mess (gifted by AJRimmer)
Wednesday 4/21 — PudTea Eton Mess, made hot & plain 16 oz. Another rooibos tea bites the dust with a light hint of berry. Would like to try Eton Mess as the actual dessert. Thank you to AJRimmer for the share per my request to be added to the share package.

The fake berry plus the rooibos here are just not working for me. The berry is a bit too fake, and it just doesn’t taste good. It’s like medicine. I’m a huge rooibos fan, but this is the sort of rooibos blend even I can’t enjoy. I mean, I could probably finish my 1 oz bag if I wanted to, but I wouldn’t have a great time doing it.
I’ve had the Eton Mess blend from Bird & Blend before and I like it, so I was excited to see Pudtea’s take on the same profile – it’s one I’ve only experienced in tea form. My first though when I tried the blend was “Oh, VariaTEA is going to hate this” because it’s really rooibos forward. I, however, loved it!
The rooibos blends from Pudtea have, so far, been rooibos dominant but I like whatever grade/region they’ve sourced. It’s quite nutty tasting to me, like a hazelnut brittle, with a lighter woody and mineral element. The hazelnut notes, in this tea, combined with the other elements of the profile made me think of a parfait!
The strawberry is good, though not particularly juicy/sweet. I feel like the best way to describe it is “Strawberry, but shrill”. Like, it was a high note kind of strawberry with an edge and tartness to it, but not under ripe feeling or sour/tangy. It’s compliments by the sweet, earthy taste of beets as well as a creaminess that reminds me of yogurt. Hence the overall comparison to a parfait! It was so different from what I’d expected, but genuinely it was so good. Very natural feeling, and rich without being sweet.
I am actually really interested to see, though, if I’m right about it not being VariaTEA’s kinda blend…
