For the streusel topping

While the rhubarb is cooking, press a sheet of baking paper into the tart case, tip in baking beans, then bake for 20 mins. Remove beans and paper, then bake for 10 mins more.

Spoon the rhubarb evenly over the case and crumble over the topping. Scatter with almonds, then bake for 20 mins. Leave the tart until just warm, then turn out and serve with the rhubarb syrup and some crème fraîche.
