First Taste

Well, I am going to be sincere. I don't know if I like it or not (but I will continue to taste it until I know). It's not because the taste is bad. Far from it. But I'm not use to custard nor rhubarb... And even if I'm not use to it I can say that's not bad at all. Even good. (If not, I wouldn't continue of drinking it....). The taste of custard is dominant but not overly so.



Smells just like rhubarb and custard sweets! A nice, caffeine-free sweet rooibos which is good for any time of day.


Just like the sweets but there is nothing old fashioned about this tea!

Really love this tea so much have come back for a bigger tin! I drink it black but it is nice with milk too if you prefer it that way. I don’t drink caffeinated tea or coffee at the moment and finding tasty alternatives is proving a challenge as I find a lot of the fruity teas on offer to sweet and cloying. This however is totally great and I am trying some other teas too!


Lacking Rhubarb

This is a very good tea, but it was more custard than rhubarb when I made it. I think the rhubarb needs it's moment too.


Just the right amount of sweetness!

This tea is ideal for when you're craving something sweet but trying to stay healthy - it really hits the spot!


Nostalgia in a cup

I love this tea! It so reminds me of my childhood favourite: rhubarb and custard sweets. It's sweet but not sickly, and refreshing. Makes a fab drink cold with sparkling water, too


Just like the sweets

This is my 2nd favourite tea from Bird & Blend. When I'm not sipping a cup of Monkey Chops this is my next go to. The smell is absolutely identical to the sweets and the taste is similar but better as it doesn't have the overbearing sweetness. Will definitely be getting a 300g tub when I run out.


sweet rooibos treat

I had this tea plain hot.. sweet but not too sweet. A subtle flavor to enhance the rooibos taste. This was a treat cold brewed in milk and made into a hot latte. I have yet to try it plain cold brewed in water as a summer drink.


Sweets in a tea

This is just what it says on the tin. Amazing sweet treat that reminds me of the rhubarb and custard flavoured boiled sweets. Happiness in a mug :)



This was my first tea purchase and I love it! So much so, that I have subscribed to the monthly tea club.This blend is fabulous,a great taste and smells heavenly whilst it is brewing.


Childhood memories

Takes me back to my childhood - smells just like the sweets. Lovely.



Me and my friends loved to drink this tea cold brewed during the hot summer. It's very refreshing and tastes great.


Perfect sweet treat in a tea

This is exactly what I was hoping it would be, tastes just like the sweets but with the warmth of a lovely cup of tea :)


Amazing rhubarb tea!

Love this tea! To me it really smells like the
rhubarb yogurt I always had at our summerhouse as a kid, which just makes me love it even more. It has a very clear rhubarb taste and is quite sweet, which makes for a great fruity tea


Dessert drink before bed!

Love this blend! Another rooibos blend to add to my stash. I'll be ordering this next time in a tin :)


Tastes exactly like the sweets and no sugar!

Bird and blend always impresses with their fruity flavoured teas and this one is no exception! It tastes exactly like it smells and that is exactly like the sweets it's based off without the sugar!


Pudding in a cup

This tea is a real treat, tastes exactly like a bowl of rhubarb and custard!


Afternoon treat

Smells like rhubarb crumble and custard and tastes just as good.


Lovely tangy taste

Received a sample of this tea with my last order and had to order a pouch. I'm a sucker for rhubarb and love this tea. I've only had it without milk and is wonderfully tangy with a subtle rhubarb aftertaste which I love. I will try it with milk because I heard that bring out the custard. Will continue to order from this lovely shop :)


Delicious and unusual

I love this blend -- it's creamy yet tart and a tasty choice for a caffeine-free afternoon tea.
