drank Raspberry Cream by 52teas
518 tasting notes

Received my monthly tea package from Frank a few days ago and decided to try some out this morning. I think I’ll be mailing 3 of the 4 out without even tasting them first, but for one I don’t like any of the ingredients, for another I am pretty sure I won’t like it either, and the 3rd I’m allergic to. So there’s that. But then there is this tea.

The smell when you open the package is amazing. It smells so good! I need a candle with this smell so I can scent my whole room with it. I could sit here huffing this tea for a long time, but I won’t because that would be weird looking.

The smell dies down as it is brewed and the liquid tea has some smell, but the black tea in the smell is more prominent than the raspberry or cream now. And the taste, divine! Ah, this is raspberry and cream…or anything and cream really, done right. The raspberry flavour is definitely the ‘natural’ flavour it says on the package because it seriously does taste like an actual raspberry! A raspberry candy in my drink because I added sugar to bring out the taste and boy it did! The cream is creamy and I made it even more creamy by adding milk and I think this tea is really good with milk and sugar. It would probably be good iced as well, for those who like iced tea. I have never met an iced tea that I have liked so I tend to stay out of that. But anyway, this tea is really really good and I’m now off to Frank’s website to see if there are any left.

What teas did you get they you’re thinking of passing on?

Starfevre

Cuba Libre, Peach Cardamom something, and the most recent honeybush blend.

Sil

May be able to do a swap with some folks here in canada. I know kittenna really wanted to try cuba libre and between her, raritea, indigobloom we may be able to coordinate something.

Starfevre

I have a home already for the Peach Cardamom one, but the Cuba Libre and the honeybush one are free to swap. I’m in the US, but I’m fine shipping to Canada

Starfevre

The honeybush is Chocolate Malt Honeybush, I just looked it up.

Sil

that sounds awesome. I’ll get organized with the girls and see if they want anything since if that’s the case, we can likely do one larger swap to keep your shipping minimized :)

Starfevre

That would be appreciated because full packages from 52teas, if there are more than one of them, definitely need boxes rather than my standard envelope I keep around.

Kittenna

Woo, I’m finally getting around to seeing this :)
