I first noticed Taylors of Harrogate teas when the beautiful Flower Fairies advertising caught my attention. I absolutely loved the charming books and illustrations from Cicely Mary Barker when I was growing up. To see them in print again brought it all back to me, however I digress .. Taylors of Harrogate have recently gave away samples of their fruit and herbal teas and of course I couldn't wait to try!
I am a huge fan of rhubarb, the mix of tart yet sweet fruit especially in a crumble is just delicious so I was curious to see how this was going to transfer into a tea.
Taylors of Harrogate say
Created in partnership with the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew
We’re completely smitten with the tangy-sweet flavour of natural rhubarb, so we’ve captured it in a cup. It’s partnered with two ingredients that work in perfect harmony – the refreshing sharpness of apple and the peppy zing of blackberry leaf – to make a wonderfully vibrant infusion.
Only natural ingredients, caffeine free, no added sugar.
Hibiscus, rosehips, sweet blackberry leaves, apple, natural flavourings (10%) rhubarb (2%)
Not only does this smell delicious in the cup the actual taste is equally delicious. A perfectly balanced cup of sweet with a tanginess that is refreshing. As Taylors of Harrogate say, the taste of rhubarb has been captured in the cup which I was delighted with. So many fruit teas are a huge disappointment but this is given a massive thumbs up
Nice for any time of day.
