Rhubarb can make a refreshing tea. Make it in combination with in-season raspberries or another favorite fruit, and brew it with some black (or green) tea. Have it on hand to serve over ice, or with a dash of seltzer.




  1. Combine rhubarb, optional fruit, mint leaves and water.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for half an hour.
  3. Remove pot from the heat and add the tea bags.
  4. Steep, covered, for 5 minutes (or according to taste).
  5. Use a fine mesh strainer to strain the tea and pulp into a large mixing bowl.
  6. Stir in sugar to taste, until it’s dissolved.
  7. Transfer tea to a covered pitcher and chill in the fridge until it’s cooled completely.
  8. Serve over ice or with seltzer.
  9. Garnish with fresh mint leaves.
