so i finally got around to trying the raspberry leaves after letting them dry for a few weeks.

an awesome tea!

when i smell the leaves dry, they have no smell to them.

when i smell the leaves wet, they smell nice and floral.

when i smell the brewed tea, it smells toasty, sweet and like raspberries.

when i taste the tea its sweet, toasty (like an oolong) and i taste raspberries.

i rate this 100 because it’s sweet and leaves a lingering sweet after taste

least i can say i was not impressed..

i could barely taste the sheng even when i did a ration of ttl 5g 50/50 2.5g each

i guess one must mix like/like teas then.

a great tea!

I noticed a taste I have never tasted in sheng before, SUGAR! (no actual sugar added). maybe its because this tea is from 2007? I wouldn’t know

little glass pitcher method, grandpa style:

when I smell the leaves dry, they smell green and musty.

when I smell the leaves wet, they smell green and floral.

when I smell the brewed tea, I smell sweetness, green and floral.

when I taste the brewed tea, I taste sweetness, sugar, green and floral.

I rate this a 95 because I don’t taste any honey or spices.

many thanks to Daniel and his Vancouver Chinatown tea shop for this amazing tea

a decent tea

when i smell the leaves dry, they have a dark chocolate smell.

when i smell the leaves wet, they have a dark chocolate smell as well as a roasted/toasty smell

when i smell the brewed tea, i smell a dark chocolate smell as well as roasted/toasty smell.

when i taste the brewed tea, i taste dark chocolate as well as a roasted/toasty taste. also i taste grapes, but its so minor its hard to tell if it is me or the tea.

now, the dominant taste is the dark chocolate. also i was told by Amanda ‘SoggyEnderman’ Wilson that this tea is a lot like “Shui Hsien” from Sea dyke brand. if i were to say which is better Shui Hsien or this tea, the former wins hands down.

i rate this tea a 75, as i was kind of disappointed.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Roasted, Toasty
