I was lucky enough to visit the Charleston Tea Plantation this past March. It was a wonderful experience that every tea lover should have.
Rockville Raspberry has a very delicate raspberry taste. You can tell that flavoring is used rather than actual raspberry bits, but it is a more natural flavoring rather than the candy-like flavorings I’ve had in other teas.
I can definitely taste a difference between the Charleston Teas and teas grown elsewhere in the world. One sip from any of their teas and I’m transported back to the plantation, where I sat and drank that first cup whilst gazing at the tea plants.
I haven’t had many fruit teas, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The first thing I noticed was the sweet peach aroma.
When I actually tasted the tea it was more like black tea with a hint of peach. Overall, I enjoyed it for not being overwhelming, but a little more peach flavoring wouldn’t hurt.
I drink this loose leaf tea at home in the South. Makes a great iced green tea and a nice alternative when suffering from a sweet tea overdose. PLUS it comes from the only tea plantation in the United States. I didn’t know until recently that you can purchase it online. Now I don’t have with(Southern)drawal.
