The scent of the dry mix is spot on—cream cheese and all. I steeped this on the longish side of the recommended range (6-10 minutes) and am coming up way heavy on the raspberry and way light on the danish. May have to experiment a bit with timing.

But with that said, raspberry is a really nice complementary flavor to honeybush, which really does have a different (fruitier?) character than rooibos.

Having stuffed myself at lunch, this was a nice guilt-free dessert.

For some reason this smelled like feet to me. Tasted okay but each time I lifted it to my mouth it smelled like feet and I had to pour it out :/ So odd.

Now I’m curious (need to stay at keyboard, but making mental note to go smell pouch first time I let myself take a break :)

haha I didn’t notice it as much in the pouch as in the final tea.

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
