I think the only other champagne tea that I’ve tried is The Republic of Tea’s Anniversary Blend, which I loved. I was excited to try this one, since it includes red raspberry in the flavor as well as the champagne. The dry leaves smell deliciously of sweet champagne. The tea liquor’s aroma is very vegetal with a soft hint of sweet berries. There is a nice sugary sweet berry flavor with an aftertaste of fresh grapes, but there is also a very strong earthy flavor that overshadows the other flavors at first. It does dimish as the tea cools, but it still a little noticeable even once it’s fully cooled. The sweet berry and grape flavors seem a little artificial to me. I am definitely getting more grape from the flavor than bubbly champagne. This tea isn’t terrible, but I’m not as fond of it as I am of the Republic of Tea champagne blend.
