Wow! This is raspberry! It’s really GOOD. The raspberry is bright and sweet and delicious and about as true to the fruit as I think I’ve ever tasted in a tea or tisane.

The flavor is bright and sweet … it tastes like fresh, homemade raspberry jam! YUMMY!

I think I’ve finally mastered this tea.

It needs a slightly lower temp (200°F) and a little less leaf and a little less steep time (2 minutes). This is now quite lovely, despite the fuss. Nice coconut flavor, rich black tea flavor. Tasty!

Still playing around with this tea a bit. It is good, but not as good as I think it could be/should be … Another attempt tomorrow.

A couple of weeks ago, I received the most delightful tea swap package from Bernideen herself. The swap was the annual fall swap of a yahoo group that I co-moderate. And this was one of the teas that was included in the package.

This is a tea that I think I should like to toy around with a bit before I rate it numerically or attempt to write a full-length review for it. I think it would benefit from a shorter brew time in my Breville. This batch is certainly drinkable, but, I think it could be better.
