If you don’t like your teas flavored or blended with fruit, you’re not gonna like this one. It’s a Ceylon black (and a light one at that, my favorite) blended with actual raspberry pieces. And, boy, does it taste like it. You won’t be able to make out the floral Ceylon aspect in the dry or wet scent, but it comes through a bit in the taste – mostly on crisp texture. Being an impurist, I rather enjoyed it.
Black tea from Ceylon, summer tasting raspberries, and a splendid CO-2 decaffeination process collide into a wonderful tea that is smooth and flavor-packed. The raspberries blend beautifully with the black Ceylon, producing a Decaf Raspberry tea that is neither too sour or sweet. The absence of caffeine is an added bonus if you want a tea with a fruity and full flavor before bed.
