Ummm, I am glad I only bought 10g of this, it smells mostly Rooibos and I want to say honeybush, but I am not sure. There is no raspberry scent or taste, but I have yet to sip this tea, I am waiting for it to cool.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec

bleck! I just took this out of the freezer (attempt at flash cooling) all I can taste and smell is red rooibos… No sweet and tart raspberry.

Dorothy

Yeah that was my impression of this tea too. I’m not sure why raspberry is in the name if you can’t even taste it. :(

Jenn

My sentiments exactly!

MaddHatter

Maybe I got a batch that has been on the shelf too long? But I bought it at a DAVIDs that has been only open a month, so that does not make sense..

Jenn

I think that they just missed the mark on this one. I have such a huge respect for DAVID’s Tea, but every company has a dud once in awhile.

I bought this one and have always felt fuped. I occasionally get a lemongrass taste (if I remember correctly) but otherwise it’s just rooibos. I have learned in the last little while that if you are disappointed with a tea and bring it back in and tell them so, you get either a trade or a refund. Now, 10 g may seem like a small amount to haggle over but since I had bought a full tin of it I wish I had known way back when. : (

ps – I can’t believe this one has never been discontinued..I don’t know anyone that truly enjoys it, yet my favourites disappear regularly!

Uniquity

**duped, NOT fuped!

Yes, I over heard the other day that their “Throat Soother” tea has just been discontinued! gasp

Bio

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
