I received 2oz of this in a gift package. I am not a huge raspberry fan as I often find it too tart, but his is a good oolong, and the berries don’t overwhelm it at all. There are berry fillers in with the oolong and not just added flavoring, I’d say a 60/40 ratio in favor of the oolong. The first cup has a stronger berry taste and it fades with each cup and the oolong getting stronger in turn. So even if the first cup has too much berry in it, I find that a rinse will help mellow it out. I do enjoy this tea, and I probably will buy it again in the future but it’s not going to be a staple in my stash either.

Profile

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
