Starting to think that Roobios might just be something I try to stay away from. Not because the flavors aren’t good, but because they have an overwhelming flavor of mulch blended with all of them. Not to mention my strainers tend to let the small peices of roobios tea through and into my cup, which isn’t a terrible problem but it is a petty annoyance.

As for this tea, it took me til the second steep to be able to really enjoy any flavor. The woody ‘mulchy’ scent that I’ve complained about before was mostly overwhelming. Which was a shame because I love raspberry flavored anything. On the second cup it wasn’t a terrible tea, but not something I’d buy again.

On drinking this a second time, I enjoyed it far more. Still not a daily drinker but much more tolerable. Apparently I’ve discovered that the ‘mulch’ smell bothers me far more on certain days then on others, and as long as I find a good day, then Roobios is drinkable. Weird thing, but whatever, it just makes them for special days.
