The dry leaves smell strongly of citrus though not in a bitter way. This is very fruity and actually smells a lot like lemonade. I don’t see much raspberry but there are other pieces of fruit (maybe apple?) and a good bit of lemongrass. I’m trying this hot today, but I bet it would be outstanding on ice. The taste is tart and very lemony. In fact, the tartness is more like that of lemon juice than something like hibiscus. I can taste berry but I wouldn’t say it’s strictly raspberry. It’s more of a general berry flavor. As it cools it starts to become a touch astringent, but overall I’m enjoying this. This is another of my husband’s favorites and I actually agree with him that this one is pretty good. I think this would be even better cold brewed.
