drank Rhubarb Green by Adagio Teas
470 tasting notes

I really got this tea to make iced, but up until today I’d only had it hot and it was so-so. The flavor is a bit weak so you need more leaf than usual, so I was definitely waiting for an opportunity to cold brew it. Of course I’ve been making Bangkok for the past week but it was time for a change!

This is definitely better cold, sweeter and creamier. It’s not so much a rhubarb tea as it is a strawberry rhubarb tea, which is not bad at all in my book. There are tons of strawberry chunks in the blend, so cold brewed this is a lovely shade of pink! Weirdly enough it’s not pink at all hot, but it’s very pretty iced. It’s also a lot more fruit than green, so much that it’s practically a tisane. I can see why this has mediocre ratings hot, but I’m really enjoying it this way and if I run through the bag this summer I’ll probably repurchase it.

Lupicia makes a strawberry rhubarb black tea that I think is yummy.

with strawberry it might be ok.

I really like rhubarb pie, but this blend is kind of missing the tartness of real rhubarb. It’s definitely more strawberry than anything else.

Rhubarb is super tart, so I would think a hibiscus tea would be the closest you’d get to something tasting like rhubarb! I have, however, made rhubarb punch, which is quite tasty and uses tons of rhubarb (aaaaaand sugar, of course).

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
