When the Art in the Age sent over a bottle of their Rhubarb Tea, happy dances ensued and lots of "taste-testing" went on. Their beautiful branding from their watercolor illustrations to their elegant bottle design really made me enjoy the product so much more, it's all about the details people and they hit this one out of the park.
The rhubarb spirit is made from "a refreshing garden tea comprised of vegetables, herbs, and spices including beets, carrots, lemon, pink peppercorn and cane sugar. It's tangy but not too tangy. Sweet but not too sweet. Crisp and refreshing, but with a hint of spice."
Sounds pretty darn good to me!
