Dry teabag smells like Raspberry Kool-Aid…sweet sweet sweet. While steeping, the tea is a very pink shade and smells much the same, though the sugar smell is toned down a bit, it still smells like raspberry juice. Maybe a sugar added concentrate instead of Kool-Aid.
First sip tastes much like it smells. Definitely raspberry, but not like I am eating a raspberry. It tastes artificially sweetened – Like raspberry Sorbet! It tastes almost exactly like Chapman’s raspberry sorbet. I still like it, but it is a bit strange in a tea. The longer you steep it the more the tartness will come out, though the sweet doesn’t go away so it’s interesting.
