I cut through the woods to the farmer’s market today (to see if I could — never again, though, it was briars the entire way) and couldn’t resist. Anyway, I had just finished their darjeeling and felt I needed something new.

This is a good, strong Ceylon with most of the raspberry flavor in the finish. Then again, I’m having it iced. So experiences may vary. The scent of the leaves reminds me of raspberry flavored Tootsie Pops. (But in a good way.) The Ceylon’s flavor and bitterness keeps it from being too candy-like.

This is one of my first raspberry teas and I am liking it very, very much. It’s going to be a staple this summer, I think. I’ll have a picture up tomorrow, once I have some sunlight.

wow…. I know you said it wasn’t the best way there but that’s like my dream – strolling through the woods to a cute little market where they sell my favourite tea. Darn suburbs and their lack of woods and markets. Now I’m hankering to go on holiday.

Profile

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
