This is another tea that I bought when one of the stores and shutting down and everything was on discount. Despite growing a little tired of rooibos, this is one that I’m glad that I actually decided to buy.
Dry, this really does remind me of raspberries and cream. When I was small, I used to go to my grandma’s to pick raspberries in her garden. She’d then wash the fresh, juicy raspberries, put some in a bowl, then add some half-and-half, and I’d eat them just like that with a spoon. The aroma of this tea reminds me of that.
The flavour is quite lovely. Once steeped, the creaminess fades and isn’t palpable aroma- or flavour-wise, but the raspberry stays strong. I find that raspberry and rooibos make a great pair because the tartness and brightness of the raspberry helps to mask the things about rooibos that sometimes bug me.
