The name of this tea sucked me in – I’m a total slut for a good rhubarb tea, so my hopes were very high with this blend! I did enjoy it a lot, but sadly my hopes weren’t really met. Maybe they were just too high!?

My absolute favourite part of this tea though is the loose leaf visual. There’s something so magical and stunning looking about those chunky pieces of apple coated in that fine beetroot dust to tint them red. There’s actually no rhubarb in this tea as far as I can tell, but they sort of cleverly trick your brain into interpreting its presence. I also think that Deb was really smart in combining a more tart and drying apple note with hibiscus to sort of “mimic” rhubarb. It’s a nice flavour and it kind of does what I think it’s trying to do, but honestly the reason this didn’t meet my expectations was because it doesn’t taste enough like rhubarb – so the absence in the blend WAS felt by me.

That said, it’s a good flavoured tea – I like the sort of tart but also baked apple note and the mix of subtle maple, and warming ginger. I can see a pie influence, and it feels appropriately autumnal. If it weren’t for the name setting up my expectations in a different way, I think this would have been something I’d have enjoyed way more right off the bat.
