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.
