WOW… wow…. WOW….

Raspberry Rush where have you been my whole life? I am in love. Never before has a tea grabbed me, drawn me in and made my senses swoon. This is tea perfection – this is why coffee will never win – move over water raspberry rush is taking tea to first place.

The dried leaves smell like freshly picked raspberries a little berry, a little earthly and a whole of sweet and it’s one of those lingering smells than even once you’ve closed up the container it just seems to remain with you.

Infused is… is… bliss. The aroma is very sweet and all raspberry there’s no “tea” smell at all. Then there’s the taste, when I close my eyes I am sure I just gobbled down a whole packet of frozen raspberries. You know that taste you get from the frozen ones, that’s what this is like a syrupy-sweet overpowering burst of raspberry flavour backed by a very light black tea. The after taste echoes the initial taste only the black tea is even fainted.

I find this tea very, very addictive and cannot recommend it enough! I really think this would suit people dipping their toe into the world of black tea who’ve sampled fruit tissanes and are ready to take the next step. This is the closest in taste to a fruit tissane that I’ve ever sampled from a black tea – it’s a very light brew that is quite hard to over-infuse (although it can be done so just watch out).

Because of the lightness of the black tea and the fact that the raspberry flavour tastes more natural than flavoured it lends itself to great all day, all night drinking – although it’s hardly likely to wake you up in the morning, but on the bright side it’s also just as unlikely to keep you up at night.

Yum, Yum, Yum!

Raspberry tea is so good! :)

I never knew – I love raspberries I put them with everything and for some reason I just didn’t make the link between loving tea and loving raspberries, I feel so stupid.

I came on it quite by accident which I think makes it all the nicer – I was actually wanting to try T2’s oolong berry but they had run out they didn’t even have any left to smell! So the lovely sales assistant recommended trying this tea to get an idea of what the other would taste like.

Haha, yeah berries are always good, but I think the raspberry taste is soo good with tea. I always have raspberry tea at my dad’s house because he has nothing else.. and I don’t mind it. I’m also going to try the oolong berry if I can and I’ll let you know how it is!

Winter Salo

Oh yes please do let me know how you go with it! I always associate a good oolong as being creamy not grassy and really just can’t imagine what a creamy berry would be like – maybe like a raspberry dipped in white chocolate mmm that’d be nice actually.

How lucky you are to have a Dad with such nice tea on hand! My Dad is very old school with tea – sticking to English Breakfast & Prince of Wales, I did get him to try a vanilla scented black tea on Father’s Day which he enjoyed but I can’t see him wanting to stock it.
