This is pretty yummy! The raspberry and bergamot are very tasty together, and the green rooibos tastes light and fruity.
I’m off to write my full-length review of this tisane for SororiTea Sisters … it will publish in the next day or two.

Earl Grey’s lesser known cousin, Earl Pink preferred an herbal tea with raspberry and bergamot. In honor of him, we’ve created this blend of caffeine-free green rooibos blended with freeze-dried raspberry bits (lots and lots of them) and natural and organic bergamot and raspberry flavors. Thanks to my lovely wife for help with the name. I’m not sure I have the skills to Photoshop a tongue onto the portrait of Earl Grey for an “Earl Raspberry”.

Another EG from my box. I don’t know that it’s all that true to the EG flavor profile (I get no bergamot from this), but that’s what it’s called anyway. I’m on a strict no-caffeine diet for a few days thanks to an infection so I’ll be drinking herbals for a while.
This is a nice raspberry tea, tart without being too much and just sweet enough. I don’t have much experience with green rooibos but the whole sip is nice and smooth. There’s no rooibos flavor to it to speak of. There’s also no bergamot, but so it goes.
I missed this tea on its initial release and was happy I got my hands on some added stock. Typically I am not one to fond over Rooibos teas as I find that they have a woodsy aftertaste however this tea uses a green rooibos which doesn’t tend to have this aftertaste and has more of a fruity note. This makes for a perfect canvas with this blend of lush raspberries and bergamont. A fresh natural flavor of raspberry is at the forefront of this blend which is followed by the smooth bergamont and citrus finish. I just received this today and have only tried it brewed hot but I have feeling this would be wonderful over ice – and can’t wait to try it.
