This tea I also got when I was in NYC. Back logging everything, as I said before, is going to take a long while… But anyways… I was done buying tea for the trip, or so I thought, until I sniffed at this one. It smelled so spectacularly fruity that I really couldn’t resist. It also was pretty and full of tasty fresh-looking berries. Ok… 2 more ounces isn’t going to do anymore damage to my pocket than was already done.
So the dark tea leaves and the red berries (much redder than they seem in the picture) made for a beautiful tea. The scent was all berry, it reminded my of the blue raspberry jolly rancher flavor in sent. I wasn’t entirely sure that it was going to work with the black tea base.
Once brewed, the burgundy tea smelled a tiny bit like tea and a whole lot like raspberry jello. Not bad, just not something that I would chose on a normal day. Unsweetened it was slightly sweet and very confusing. Very much needed to be sweet to work for me. Sweet it was a happy treat. (Completely unintended rhyme…) The only berry flavor that I love I tea seems to be blueberry, so this is going to drunk up quickly and probably never replaced.
If you are looking for a sweet and fruity berry tea with a super intense flavor, this is what you are looking for. :) Sadly, this isn’t what I am looking for, but happy to give it a try!
Also, since I promised… Here is the link to the video of the last ice skating show! Not me at my best, but it was fun to skate again for the first time in years! http://youtu.be/HV6oUTeduFA
