Honestly I never bother to write reviews but I felt this tea has made such an impression on me I couldn't not praise it. I've tasted all sorts of tea but this is mind blowing! Soooo sweet without being sickly and no sugar in it at all. It's really helping with my diet by filling the gap a sugary treat used to take. Exactly replicates the rhubarb & custard sweets I loved as a child. So comforting. Thank you bluebird tea company! I salute you :)...Read more


Smells and tastes delicious

This is my absolute favourite Bluebird tea (although there is a lot of competition for this title!). It smells just like rhubarb and custard and has a lovely sweetness to it. I drink it with a splash of rice or almond milk to give it a slight creaminess. Lovely!


My favourite of all the

My favourite of all the teas that I've tried from Bluedbird. Would highly recommend.


Loved it! True rhubarb flavour

Loved it! True rhubarb flavour & custard which took me back to my childhood with those sweeties!! Xx


I love the rhubarb and

I love the rhubarb and custard tea. It tastes sweet without being sickly and is really reminiscent of the sweets. Can we have it in a tea bag please for ease :-)


Excellent tea! My only wish

Excellent tea! My only wish is that it would come in tea bags :-)


The rhubarb and custard tea

The rhubarb and custard tea is a nice refreshing drink I have it during my nightshift i would recommend this tea


Absolutely my favorite!

Sharp, creamy and sweet but never sickly. I wish I had purchased a larger bag as this is nearly gone already. The rhubarb flavour is bang on the money and really nice as a pick me up or treat with its creamy custard finish. Guess how I am spending my saturday? That's right... snuggling my dog and drinking this tea! It doesn't get better than this.


Rhubarb and custard

This tea reminds me of the lovely and very moorish sweets of the same name- totally mouthwatering! I'm a complete coffee fiend but this tea has me converted. Dai iawn Bluebird. From Wales xx


Wonderful aroma followed by a

Wonderful aroma followed by a brilliant taste. This is my favourite Bluebird tea.


This company and what they

This company and what they do - amazing! A friend of mine was raving about having tried a rhubarb and custard tea but not able to source any. Google returned bluebird and I am so glad they did! No chemicals / sweeteners just tea and other natural additions. I visited their store in the lanes in Brighton recently and have brought many more samples to try! The staff were welcoming, personal, uber informed on their products and range but without pushy hard sell. Keep up the high standards as you expand as the product quality is second to none. Please can you start retailing out of waitrose soon please! :) h xxx...Read more


The tea is fantastic I

The tea is fantastic I love it! Will definitely be ordering more! (Although the packaging had unfortunately opened in the post so had spilt into the box)


sweet like dessert

A wonderful Rhubarb + Custard flavoured tea that, in my opinion, could do with a little more rhubarb as the vanilla 'custard' taste overpowers pretty much everything else. But that works for me since it reminds me of being a kid and drinking a hot mug of Birds custard as a treat.



Rhubard and custard tea is the way forward!!!


Amazing tea

Ordered this tea after going to an afternoon tea in London, it was sent out within a day and is an amazing blend of tea, shared with friends and there all new fans of this tea as well!!! will defo be placing another order and this time for a few packets!


Rhubarb & Custard

A pudding in a cup. Wonderful vanilla flavours come through in this delicious experience. We find it a wonderful end to a meal.And it has red bush, our favourite.


Mr Benn, Rentaghost, Chock a block, Toni Arthur...

I blogged about this tea on my blog - http://cupsbooks.blogspot.co.uk/ - and this is what I wrote...

When I was pretty little, we're talking junior school age, I went on a school trip to York. I haven't thought about it for years, but today it came flooding back with a vengeance. And to explain why, I need to go back only to tuesday of this week.

On tuesday, a friend of mine put some money in my paypal account for an action figure I had found in my loft and consequently sold him. Now, I had plenty of sensible things I should have spent this money on, and tea was not one of those things. But I had been eyeing up the Bluebird Tea Company for a while and, in a fit of 'sensible be damned, I want tea', I ordered four of their fantastically named and very tasty sounding teas. It was free shipping on tuesday as well - I think they did that because they knew it would tip me over the edge...

Very efficiently they shipped my order out the same day, and just as efficiently the postman got it to me two days later. Two hours ago. I will write about and review the others as I come to drink them, but the first one I decided to try was Rhubarb and Custard. Oh and what a good decision that was.

Rhubarb and Custard by Bluebird Tea Co

The blurb from the company - Hardy British super fruit, much loved vintage cartoon characters, top boiled sweet and crumble of the Gods... Rhubarb + Custard really is a pairing made in heaven. This naturally caffeine free, antioxidant rich blend will satisfy your sweet tooth with less than 1 calorie p/cup! Sounds like a super sweet deal to us!

The bit by me -

On that trip to York we visited the castle museum, and there was this bit of it that was made up like an old fashioned street - Victorian I think.

In that street was a sweet shop - not a real sweet shop, all the fake sweets were behind glass so day tripping schoolkids couldn't gorge themselves on what were no doubt plaster of paris gobstoppers and modelling clay licorice whips. But it smelled like a real sweet shop. It was amazing to my young mind, and it clearly stuck with me.

30 odd years later, I remembered walking into that place. I remembered the Al Jolson machine outside the gift shop that took 2ps and played for half an hour. I remembered what my junior school teacher looked like.

This tea smells, tastes and feels like nostalgia. And that, today, is a very good thing.

Nice but not strong on flavour

Enjoying this new blend of tea but, the taste of Rhubarb and Custard is not very strong.


Rhubarb and custard

I tried this tea when attending a mad hatters tea party in london, it was lovely, sweet without being sickly, a real treat, bringing fond memories of childhood sweets, and without the calories. Well I just had to order 3 packs, and even took one of the packs on a cruise. Love, love, love this special tea. Thanks for your inventiveness .


Pudding in a Cup

This tea is amazing. You can have pudding without the calories. It is sweet tasting so no extra sugar is needed. I prefer tea with milk and this is perfect with milk. I have it with almond milk too, which is just as tasty and adds an extra dimension. I'll be getting this again and can't wait to try more varieties :)
