I like this very much as an iced tea. I cold brew in the refrigerator overnight in the Bee House pitcher. It is sweet, but not overly so. I don’t really get a rhubarb taste, but a bit of fruity flavor.
Dry this tea smells very sweet. Overpoweringly so. It brews up to a very light colored cup and the sweet smell is virtually gone leaving something that might be rhubarb. But it doesn’t really taste like anything. Maybe this is because I used a TeaDrop and it needs a bit more attention. I’ll take it home and see if that improves it any.
This tea took me by surprise. When I opened the package, I was a little unsure I would like it. The aroma was a mix of both pleasent, and a bit odd. However, once brewed, I was rather pleased. I did 3 brewings with the same leaves, and could have gotten a few more, I am sure. The first cupping was smooth and fruity, but not overpowering. The second cupping was milder, with a hint of sweetness. The third was similar to the second. Once totally cooled, I could tell this tea would be great iced.
