drank Raspberry Cream by Ronnefeldt Tea
4227 tasting notes

Trying this tea courtesy of TeaEqualsBliss – Thanks!

Not my favorite rooibos tea, but it isn’t bad either. The raspberry flavor is very faint, as if it’s competing with the flavor of the rooibos. I experience more of the tart tingle on my tongue from the berry than I do actual berry flavor.

I can also taste the cream – but it too is quite delicate.

What I like best about this particular blend is that the flavors have managed to mask that artificial sweetness taste that I often get from rooibos, so what I’m left with is a slightly woodsy, slightly berry, with a touch of vanilla cream tasting cup. I’m tempted to allow it to cool significantly to see how it might fair as an iced tea.

eh… the more I’m drinking this, the less I’m liking it (and that rarely happens). The tea seems to be losing flavor as I go, rather than it intensifying – which is really odd.

LOL, I think this might have been mine originally – I seem to recall giving away my bag of it to TeaEqualsBliss awhile ago in the “Take It Away” thread.

I wasn’t terribly thrilled with it either, but since I’m not a fan of pretty much any red rooibos tea I’m possibly biased. :D

I’m not a huge fan of red rooibos either – although there are some that I really do like (52Teas chocolate banana for example). This one just didn’t have enough flavor to it to keep me interested, I’m afraid.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
