A fantastic iced tea, brewed strongly for about 10 minutes (for a gallon of iced tea) and sweetened. Moomins are rotund fictional beings that somewhat resemble hippos, from a series of illustrated books from Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson. The endearing illustrations on the Moomin Teas are delightful even before you experience the aroma of black tea with rhubarb and strawberry. It’s definitely a fruity tea, but with a rich earthiness of well-steeped black tea.

Flavors: Rhubarb, Strawberry, Sweet, warm grass

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Designer, photographer, gardener, and rabid locavore. Tea? I’ll have mine with milk and sugar, please. :)

I adore the silly ostentation of ordering tea in a restaurant. Coffee? Yeah, you get a mug and a saucer of cream packets. Tea? Oh, let us break out the wooden tea box, and get you a tiny little platter with a teapot and a mug and all the accoutrements…

If you are into swapping tea, I’m always happy to ship a sample of my cupboard in exchange for new and interesting teas!
