This tea was another find from the Sage and Daisy shop in Kansas City’s Crown Center mall. While the person at the shop was uncertain as to exactly which fruits are contained within this tea, I will attempt to discern this for myself as I taste it. As with the Blueberries and Cream tea from Sage and Daisy, this is the fourth or fifth time that I have actually made this tea, so I feel that I have a fairly strong grasp on its flavors and nuances now.
Using a two-cup teapot, two teaspoons of the loose leaf, and just-boiled water, a three-minute steep provides me with a smoothly drinkable cup of tea of moderate strength. The underlying Ceylon black tea can be tasted clearly, but the fruit flavors are just as prominent. Strawberry and raspberry are the two that seem most obvious to me, but there may well be more. The aroma is deliciously fruity, and it centers primarily around a tart scent (raspberry, perhaps). Having only purchased a small package of several ounces, this tea is already in danger of going extinct in my cupboard. I highly recommend for those paying a visit to Sage and Daisy. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would rate this tea an 87/100.
