Oh, this is the best way to start a Friday! It’s so freakin’ creamy and full of raspberry. Slightly tart raspberry but, wait for it, there’s NO HIBISCUS. I really love this tea.

I should probably leave this at the office but I just got it and I’m so excited and I’m not going to be surprised when at the end of the day I stuff all my new teas into my purse to stuff onto my tea shelves at home. Why do I even order tea for the office? :P Seems lik my new teas stay at home, and my small samples get smuggled into the office for sipdowns. But it works?

Anyway this tea is OMG raspberry yes.

Not a lot of coconut, then?

Courtney

I love raspberries teas that work. Sounds awesome!

Cavocorax

I didn’t think so – it mostly added to the creaminess. (Unlike some coconut oolongs I’ve had there were JUST coconut – this is far more subtle).

This one is SO GOOD, right? I might need to make myself a cup…

TeaBrat

no hibiscus – wheee!

Shopping listed! and also, I’m glad you can taste the raspberry here-often, the coconut flavouring can be overwhelming.

VariaTEA

Yay for no hibiscus. That is one of the main reasons I plan on getting this tea.

Ubacat

Raspberry without hibiscus! I’m putting this one on my wish list.

Amariel

Yay for no hibby, too!

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
