I sipped on a cup of this while I was on the porch earlier and, I will admit, I was more concerned with the great weather than with of the taste of the tea so I’m not sure how much I really noticed. The dry leaf made me think of Peeps marshmallows… if Peeps was a gourmet dessert and not little balls of stale sugar. Creamy, sweet and with a little tang of something unidentifiable. All brewed up, the smell was a little more exotic. I could taste a bit of the hibiscus but it wasn’t overwhelming – just a faint ding of tart that brought to mind fresh berries. Of course, once the Peeps connection was made, I couldn’t get it out of my mind and I ended up thinking of gourmet raspberry Peeps. If they made gourmet raspberry Peeps. Oddly enough, I don’t think it tasted like actual raspberry or even actual Peeps but that’s what got stuck in my head. That being said, I’m not in love with this tea but I think it is more a personal taste thing than a tea thing. Because anything that reminds me of raspberry just isn’t something I’ll ever adore.
