rsync + tar archive performance

I have issue with taring speed on the directory created over rsync.

I'm putting directory on a system using rsync (rsync -rv) then tarred it 
then puting the same directory on the server again using cp (cp -r) and 
tarred it.
There is a result of my test - looks like 
tar working two times slower on directory copied by rsync.

- m4cp and m4sync contain same files/dirs (from ~100KB to ~3MB)
- using rsync 3.0.7-2 (debian squeeze)
- fs - ext4

I'm not sure what's wrong there.. waiting for your suggestions.

Thanks and greetings,
