Thanks to Dinosara for this generous sample!

I don’t know if my taste buds are just a dud today but this one isn’t quite clicking with me either. It smells lovely…delicate and fruity. I’m just not tasting much of anything really. It tastes…a little plant like but that’s it…no fruity flavor:(. I keep resteeping it (in the original cup) to see if I can coax out more flavor from it (1 tsp) but I’m not getting much of anything. I really wanted to like it (the name made it seem like it would be fantastic) but it’s just not there. Maybe next time:-S

Now that I keep resteeping it (in the same cup) I’m getting some of that raspberry flavoring to come through…it just tastes really artificial though * sigh *.

Profile

Bio

I live in Boise, Idaho…home of the Boise State Broncos:) I’m a newbie to the tea scene and trying to get my hands on various kinds of tea to try them all. I enjoy reading, listening to music, and watching various television shows.
My current TV obsession is Parks and Recreation:-D I also love The Middle, Modern Family, Simpsons, The Neighbors, Vampire Diaries, and Game of Thrones.

My Steepster rating details ….

75-100 : Pretty awesome stuff, will pursue many a cup.

50-75 : Decent, will brew more in the future just not all the time

25-50 : Ehhh…Doesn’t really stand out, probably won’t pursue another cup unless I have to use up the supply.

1-25 : UGH! Won’t drink again. Enough said.

I seem to be a harsh critic when it comes to tea tasting it seems! A tea that has gotten rave reviews doesn’t seem to suit me. I just have to keep trying everything out there to find out what does! Thanks for all your insight Steepsters!
