drank Ripe Raspberry by Kally Tea
465 tasting notes

I used 1.25 tablespoons of dry leaf for 375ml of water.

Raspberry perfume-y flavour on the sip. Detecting a melony hint which gives the raspberry flavour some fullness. The raspberry taste is fairly authentic. The overall flavour is quite mild. Hibiscus is well blended. Light sweetness. Detecting a light astringency and flavour from the black tea.

Hibiscus tartness comes out as the tea cools but it is neither unpleasant nor overpowering. It does, however, really stick out on its own. There isn’t enough raspberry taste on the sip to properly partner with it.

Thank you to Indigobloom for passing some of this on to me.

yep I’m not sure what to do with this one myself!

Maybe a longer infusion time? I have a bit left to experiment with one more time. This one is definitely not something that I would seek out again though.

Hmm perhaps, I need to play around with it… Dad thought the first steep was too tart. Might be better iced.
