I stopped in at Fru P on the way home to stock up on the nommy vanilla, and as usual I fell into a few of the others as well. This one and a herbal mix containing nothing but chocolate (lots!), hazelnut and black currant, which she recommended preparing like a chai.

Apart from the vanilla, her teas have however always disappointed me a little. I mean, they were good enough, but they weren’t awesome. The aroma is generally over the top awesome, but the flavouring itself always seemed a bit out of balance. I’m pressing on, though, because I simply refuse to believe that she’s only got one awesome tea in the whole shop. Strikes me as highly unlikely.

This one also delivers on the aroma. Very rhubarb-y and sour. I have to admit I did get a little concerned about hibiscus at this point, but when I tasted it, my fears were laid to rest. Tart and rhubarb-y, but no metallic side-flavours to be found. There’s a creamy vanilla-y note to it as well, which makes me wonder if there might be some vanilla blended in as well.

If one enjoys a rhubarb flavoured tea, then this is actually quite good. I’ve only ever had it in green tea before, and that Ruby Pie (I believe) that Sil shared with me, so it was the combination with black tea that drew me in.

I’m uncertain about how much I like it. I mean I like it, but I can’t really decide whether I love it or merely like it. I think it’s something in between. It’s quite interesting though, and it’s the sort of tea that really invites you to play with it. Mix it with other things, see what happens. I’m definitely going to try it in combination with the lovely nommy vanilla. I suspect that might be a combination that could be awesome.

My first tea to review from the return of the EU TTB box round 2. I’m loving flavoured black teas today and I also love rhubarb so the chance to try a rhubarb based black tea is high on my list of priorities for the day. :)

Oohhhh lovely, tart yet sweet rhubarb notes are crisp amongst the lightly malt black tea. A lovely scent, exactly what I wanted to sniff, raises my expectations for this blend somewhat.

Served with a drop of milk.

I took a sip and couldn’t help from verbally declaring “Oohhh this is nice!” while my husband said he could taste rhubarb which is excellent since I didn’t tell him it was a rhubarb flavoured tea. It doesn’t taste strong and the black base doesn’t add anything to deter from the beautiful rhubarb flavour. It is tart yet sweet but rather natural in flavour and it seems to melt in my mouth through the after taste. I’m actually salivating as I drink this tea :) I can happily compare this blend to Bluebird’s Rhubarb + Custard, the main difference is that their blend is creamier and sweeter than this one, but regardless this blend is still wonderful. I would happily buy some of this tea. :)

Great start from the return of the box.

I was very happy with this one as well. :)

This sounds good! I’ve only had one rhubarb tea before, from Davidstea, and it tasted nothing like rhubarb to me.

Nattie

I liked this one a lot, too (:
