This tea was tangy, sweet and somewhat creamy. Strawberry was definitely the dominant taste. Although the flavoring is strong it did not come across as overdone. It reminded me very much of strawberry flavored greek yogurt. This is the first time that I had ever tasted anything with rhubarb in it but their site explains that is where the tartness comes from. Hibiscus is one of my least favorite ingredients but the other elements helped to balance out the taste. Adding just a touch of sweetener took the edge off even more. Herbal blends aren't really my thing so I wouldn't be likely to buy this (I got a sample with a recent order). Overall it was fairly refreshing and I can imagine it making a really good iced tea. David's Tea's site suggested using this to make sangria. I'd definitely be willing to give that a try.
