From Twinings

Fiery yet sweet, this blend is full of flavour…

Hot juicy crumble on the kitchen table. The sharpness of the rhubarb flavour shines through and combined with spicy ginger creates a sense of warmth for a truly comforting infusion – a pure double delight!

Naturally caffeine free, this intensely fiery blend is a deliciously special treat, any time of the day.

This one is nice and gingery, and while it’s more spice than fruit the rhubarb comes through decently. I could’ve done without the liquorice root, though—this is sweeter than any rhubarb tisane has a right to be, and I suspect I would’ve liked it better without this stealth addition. It’s not bad, and I won’t rule out restocking it given the price, but I think I prefer Teapigs’ take on this flavor combo.

The third of my four stray Twinings bags. I actually feel like I’m having a pretty good time with these today, despite them being of the “fine shred” variety. I’m not the biggest ginger fan, but I do love rhubarb, so I’m guessing that’s why I added this one to an order sometime in the distant past. I gave the bag 3.5 minutes in boiling water, and the scent when I returned to the kitchen was pretty amazing – rhubarb and custard sweets!

To taste, this is initially more rhubarb than ginger, which scores it major points with me. The rhubarb is on the sweet side, and just a little bit tart. The ginger emerges in the mid-sip, but more as a warmth and kick of spicy heat than a flavour in itself. The major letdown for me with this one is the liquorice root. It wasn’t listed in the ingredients, but I know it’s around because I can taste its sweet stickiness at the back of my throat. It’s not as overdone as it’s been in some teas I’ve tried recently, but it’s still there and I HATE it.

If it wasn’t for that, this would have been a pretty high scorer with me. I don’t feel I come across a rhubarb tea that often, so when I do it’s a pleasant novelty. I wouldn’t say this was a particularly fiery blend, so it’s not living up to its name in that respect, but it is rhubarb and ginger and that would have been enough. As it stands, I wouldn’t repurchase this one. The liquorice is a complete no-no as far as I’m concerned.
