This one is from the Christmas calendar, actually, and I’ve only just got around to trying it myself now. I’m using the rest of the tea, having given most of it away and also made some of it for Husband once when I was having something else myself. He thought, if memory serves me correctly, that it was a very pleasant tea. I’ve shared it with MissB and Courtney, and MissB in turn shared it with Jump62359. All of them thought it was pleasant, although MissB found it triggered one of her allergies, so I’m quite confident that I’m going to like it.

I used the rest of the leaf that I had, and that turned out to be a bit more leaf than it looked like because it brewed up fairly strong. No matter, I like a fairly strong tea, so it hasn’t lost anything on that account.

It’s very rhubarb-y in flavour. I can’t comment on the aroma, because my nose is running a bit. I hope I haven’t caught anything. Or rather, I sort of hope that I’ve caught something, because I’ve never suffered from pollen allergies of any sort in all my life and I don’t much fancy starting now. But it’s got lots of rhubarb flavour and it actually tastes like rhubarb. It also tastes like green tea. It’s about equal parts flavour and base and they are flavours that seem to go quite well with each other, finally ending on a sweet note.

I might actually purchase some more of this if it’s still summer when I’m allowed to buy tea again. I doubt it is, to be honest. It seems like there’s still lots left in the box I haven’t tried yet. Next year, then!

I know Fru P is the place in Aarhus, do they do their own blends? Or do you know where they get their teas? I’m wondering if it’s worth having family send me some of their teas.

Angrboda

No, she’s a delicatessen shop rather than a tea shop. She’s just one that happens to have a lot of tea. She’s also got a lot of specialty beer, wine, coffee, fancy chocolates, fancy biscuits and so on. Lately, on her facebook, I saw that she now had some kind of french cordial which I’m reminding myself to get a bottle of next time I come past there.

I don’t know who her supplier is (and I don’t really like asking either, tbh), but I expect it’s one of the same large bulk suppliers that supply a lot of these little shops in Europe. I did once see the original foil bag that she had received her stock in because I wanted to know if there were any more details on where from Sri Lanka their Ceylon tea had come from, and we found an estate name on it. Sadly I didn’t pay attention to whether there was any other information on the bag at the time.

Actually, given the names of some of these blends, I strongly suspect you could also go to Hans&Grete and get the exact same blend. I just tend to prefer Fru P. I’m not keen on the row of enormous coffee mills H&G have constantly churning away in their shop window so close to their tea. I can’t actually taste any difference if there has been coffee near it or not and at this level of quality I’m not sure it matters super-much either. I don’t even know if there is coffee in them all the time either. For all I know it might be mostly for show that they’re running. It just leaves a very bad impression on me.

Angrboda

Oh gosh, long answer. Sorry. O.o

Marzipan

No thank you! I just wondered if it was something super special. One of our nephews works downtown so it would be easy to have some sent.

Marzipan

I had to go look up where, he works at Inspiration.

Angrboda

Ha, we were there just yesterday buying new plates. Different shop, though, but same chain. :) At last I can serve more than four!

Marzipan

I remember really liking it last trip to DK.

The only time I’ve ever had a rhubarb tea was from The Spice and Tea Exchange and it was their Mystic Dragon tea. A great tea! But just like all the other ones I’ve had, it doesn’t really stand out? A nice tea to have, but not a must have

I got this from MissB a while back and I was very grateful for all her samples!

This smells very similar to Mystic Dragon, just less strawberry, obviously, because I don’t even thing this has strawberry in it.
Ohh don’t know how rhubarb tastes like, but I feel like this very much tastes like rhubarb haha. A nice tea! I don’t think I’m super in love with rhubarb teas, but it’s nice to have in the cupboard :)

Angrboda

Rhubarb has a tart-sweet astringent flavour. Husband quite enjoyed this one. I still haven’t tried it myself yet and I got it in the Christmas calender…

I decided to brew up this one and Rhubarb Vanilla together for a bit of a comparison. They aren’t directly comparable, but close enough.

Upon first sip this one is exactly what it claims to be – rhubarb green. It’s tasty. I was slight wary that the combination of rhubarb and green tea would be some sort of bitter disaster, but it isn’t at all. I am very picky about greens, and they generally get neglected in my swap pile because they are “high maintenance” – aka can’t be steeped at boiling with a high chance they won’t be enjoyed. However, all the Fru P teas Angrboda sent have been awesome.

I really enjoy rhubarb everywhere, including tea. This is definitely a tea I could get behind. Like cupboard-worthy. And a cupboard-worthy green is quite something.

Thanks Angrboda!

I have fond memories of rhubarb growing up – eating it raw from the garden at the neighbor’s across the street (just stay away from the green bits!) and then learning how to stew it and make it into pie. Ah…. yes, and definitely yum. The tart, sweet, creamy and gelatinous mix always turned my crank, although it’s likely been 30 years since I’ve had any. Does this tea remind me of that? Maybe, however I fear there’s something strawberry-ish in the mix for flavor, as I’m having a mild allergic reaction to the tea. Boo.

I must have gotten this from Angrboda, although I swore it came from Ysurella. I really need to start labeling my teas better! :) Regardless, thank you for sharing this with me, as it’s really a lovely, light tea.

Ahhh, I LOVE raw rhubarb!! People always go “ewww” on me when I tell them I just eat it like that. Isn’t it the best tartness ever? It makes my inner cheeks squeak :-)

Suziqzer

Ok, so I’m one of those people that says yuck to raw rhubarb. My parents have a couple of plants and mom makes rhubarb desserts, but I never could handle the stuff raw. I guess you really have to like tart/sour!

Angrboda

That was definitely me, unless Ysuarella has a Danish source that I don’t know about. Fru P is a local shop in the city where I work and she doesn’t have a webshop. I’m sorry about the reaction though. :(

Dustin

I have never tried rhubarb raw! I have read that you can grow it in Texas, but it is difficult because it is a cold loving plant.

Such a shame that you have reactions to strawberries! Strawberry and rhubarb seems like two tastes that were made for each other.

MissB

I used to love strawberries and rhubarb together… it was only a few years ago that I developed this allergy, which I’m told is quite common to get as an adult.

Angrboda: of course you’re right. My bad! Thank you again for your generosity. :)

Angrboda

Husband’s mother can’t have strawberries either, but that’s because of the little seeds not agreeing with her. The seeds in tomatoes cause problems as well or poppy seeds. Any sort of seed in that general size is avoided.
