drank Raspberry Riot Lemon Mate by Teavana
1199 tasting notes

So I think going to the mall went well. I’ll give you no guesses as to where I was going. Since as you can see mall pretzel turned into this and 2 oz of Anjou Pear-adise since I’ve been dreaming about it for a week. I think it went well. I might have come off too into operational things because of my economics major but fingers crossed!

So I’ve been wanting to try this one for ages, every time I try to in a swap it is all gone. It was time to just buy some for myself. Let’s just say every time I crave raspberry lemonade, this is what I’m turning to. I can’t imagine drinking this hot, because it seriously tastes like a better version of raspberry lemonade. And as a bonus, it’s raspberry lemonade with mate!

Usually I can keep myself from eating fruit in teas but with three raspberries just sitting there on the surface during the 5 1/2 minute steep that felt like ages, I had to eat one. I’ll probably go eat the others too now.

I imagine this is probably tasty added to other things. I have a lemon green on the way, I can see this making it even more lemonade-like.

I didn’t even know there was hibiscus in here. Well obviously when I took the Finum basket out, it was evident but it doesn’t taste like it at all. I also get the strangest taste from it, like it’s effervescent. I bet this would be another excellent candidate for a tea “soda” too.

I just kind of wish there was a bit more mate because I’m feeling like today is just dragging, but I think that’s the fault of the weather and it’s pretty evident it’s affecting everyone else based on their driving. I had to go the most roundabout way to the mall, when it’s just 2 exits over with a simple pop on the interstate. But no. No, everyone wanted to be terrible. Thanks Isaac. Isaac the terrible.

Oh I just saw rosehips are in here too. Well clearly this isn’t the tea to drink if you want to taste your mate, but I am quite impressed with how both the tart offenders are actually matched well to the raspberry and lemon. This is tart, but it tastes tart from raspberry. And it’s still nice and sweet. In any case, seriously, who needs like those Crystal Light things when you can have this stuff? I can’t wait to cold brew it.

OH Amamda – you are too funny….eating the Raspberries meant for the tea!
I love this one too. First time I had it really put me into overdrive. I’m waiting to finish my Oolong so I can make it in my iced pitcher next.

It steeped in there for a good 4 minutes first, but I couldn’t wait anymore!
