This is a lovely little tea that tastes just like a bowl of raspberries and cream. I tried it plain and with a bit of sugar, and they both tasted great, so I think it’s just a matter of personal taste. I don’t know what everyone is complaining about. It didn’t taste “stale” when I made it, it tasted like one of my favorite desserts. Anyway, I would definitely drink this again, especially as a dessert tea. I suspect it would also be wonderful as an iced tea.
