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.


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.


Gorgeous herbal drink

I love rhubarb and this is a perfect flavour combination.


Heaven for a rhubarb addict

Just to open the packet is enough for a rhubarb freak like me to float off into a reverie: it smells fantastic! The blend of the mouthwatering acidity of rhubarb and the sweet creamy smoothness of the vanilla custard...oh wow.

I'm always on the lookout for anything with rhubarb in and it took my eye a couple of years ago, so I've treated myself to a couple of packets to make sure I don't run out for a while.

It is delicious hot or cold at any time of the day and my favourite cuppa. No matter how tough the work day has been, this puts me in a good mood. :)

Great concept - could do with some more intensity (for me)

I love the idea of this tea but I prefer an intense taste and this has not quite done it for me. It's perfectly pleasant but lacks the kick that some of the other rooibus teas have.


An essential B&B blend for me!

This is EXACTLY what I was imagining/hoping for! After a four minute steep, there is definitely a nice rhubarb flavor! Not too tangy, but definitely rhubarb. Then there is a lovely sweet creamy flavor to make the rhubarb taste even better. And the rooibos is a perfect background for a rhubarb flavor. It’s just a dreamy blend that reminds me of a strawberry rhubarb pie with whipped cream on top or something. This is the perfect rooibos blend. I have yet to be disappointed in any of the teas from B&B that I’ve sampled. I could order them all!...Read more


Love it!

I love this tea. The smell of it before brewing is incredible and, once brewed, the taste is creamy and rhubarby. I first tasted it as one of the teas in the advent calendar, and later bought a tin of it because I couldn't limit myself to just one cup!


Deliciously decedent!

Rhubarb lovers will find this tea lovely. The mildly tart rhubarb flavor is balanced with a creamy richness that is very addicting. With a little honey, it is dessert. A big favorite!


Sweet and tangy

I generally don't like rhubarb, so I wasn't sure I'd like this one, but after getting a sample of it, I ended up buying a little pouch. Without milk it is quite tangy, but with almond milk added the custard flavour really comes through. It's a lovely sweet and slightly tangy treat perfect for any time of the day.


Hilarious name but ace taste

Love the flavour of this tea.


Flavour really comes through

This is the first time I try flavoured Rooibos tea and it's delicious! Flavour combination work very well . I would highly recommend this tea x
