Day 67 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge (and my final backlogged day).

1.5tsp in my teaball, brewed in-cup.

You know the saying “where’s the beef”? Well, with this tea, it’s more like where’s the raspberry? The tea itself isn’t bad at all, but while raspberry makes me think of a succulent, tart, juicy sweetness, all I get from this tea that is remotely like this is a hint of fruity sweetness. The predominant flavour is the citrus. Which, while nice, does not seem to match the raspberry-inspired name.

And it looks like this tea just got discontinued, so I’m glad I tried it when I did! I hope if they try creating a raspberry flavour again, they put more effort into making it, well, more raspberry-y.

How do people find out that teas are discontinued?!

Uniquity

Usually staff bring it up when I’m in store, especially if I am considering getting some more or talking about it.

I went and looked for the tea online, and it didn’t exist. While I’ve not heard any official announcements, I’d at least have no problems inferring that this implies the tea is discontinued. ;)
