Always excited as I am for herbal fruity teas I was stoked to buy this sweet extremely fruity (fruit roll-up even)smelling tea that borders a little on the obscene.
You can smell the raspberries and the hibiscus is undetectable so that makes me very very happy.It also does not smell overwhelmingly of the Stevia or Rooibos mentioned in the ingredients and so I hope nothing takes away from the promise of another amazing fruity tea from DT.
Since it’s a fruit herbal tea and not a fussy black tea or other stimulating DT tea that can become bitter with a pinch of ANYTHING too much I prepared a HEAPING 1.5 tsp and brewed for a full 7 minutes.
Pouring it out it looks like juice..a nice thick syrupy juice..my mouth is totally watering.Unfortunately now the Hibiscus has made it’s presence known..so here’s hoping it doesn’t turn into another Pink Flamingo.
First taste and it’s very juice-like..not too Hibiscus-y but enough to make me not fall in love.Pleasantly sweet and you can definitely pick out the other flavors of raspberries and best of all..it’s NOT Pink Flamingo.
It’s a perfectly decent fruit tea and would make nice iced tea but it’s not fabulous or awesome..it’s just pleasant and there’s so many other fruit teas that I am head over heels for that it’s just not an investment I’ll make again unless it magically grows on me.
Anything can happen..but for now..
It’s a perfectly decent fruity tea.
