I didn’t have quite enough of the Raspberry Riot Lemon Mate to make a full cup so I added in a bit of Teavana’s Apple Lemon Pomegranate to supplement since it also has that lemon/lemongrass flavor. My tea ball, as usual, isn’t doing such a great job at holding everything in so there are pieces of lemongrass floating on the the surface of my cup. Lots of pieces. I bought a large Finum brewing basket over the weekend but forgot to pack it in my work bag.
The liquid is dark, a deep berry color, and it tastes tart and dusty. I’ll buy more of this because it’s one of my husband’s favorites. Hopefully my next cup will be better because it will be fresh. This batch has been sitting in our cupboard for a while. This tastes fruity but I’m not picking up on any of the apple. It tastes just like the Raspberry Riot Lemon Mate. I’m not really detecting any of the Apple Lemon Pomegranate.
Flavors: Dust, Fruity, Tart
