From The Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar

Delicious, ripe raspberries explode with blueberries and strawberries to create this beautiful berry brew. Works well hot or iced up with a dash of honey if you like it that way. The perfect afternoon pick me up.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea. I am enjoying it!

This tea tastes best after it’s had a few moments to cool. It gets even better after its completely cooled (as in iced tea!) The berry flavor intensifies as the temperature of the cup drops. When very hot, the berry flavor is really only strongly noticeable in the aftertaste. After cooling a few moments, the berry flavor comes through loud and clear and is indeed a berry BOMB!

But as an iced tea, it really shines. Sweet, berry flavor. I taste each of the flavors – the strawberry, blueberry and raspberry! – and it all tastes amazing. The black tea tastes to me like it is probably a Ceylon, as it is brisk and mellow, not overwhelmingly strong, but strong enough to stand on its own amid the bomb of berries.

Very good. Thanks again, my SororiTea Sister!

Om nom nom…. berry goodness is what this is, delicious, delectable berry black tea.

Imagine a sweet summer berry tart – now imagine someone liquefied that because I swear that’s what’s happened here. This is an AMAZING combination of natural flavours – as a rule I don’t believe in ‘desert replacement’ teas because quite frankly no matter how good a tea is how can it really satisfy that craving for a good piece of cake? But this definitely works as a desert replacement because it manages to be sweet, tart and ‘filling’. It makes for an extremely satisfying cup of berry tart.

Dry you are greeted by big black tea leaves, freeze dried blueberries and raspberries and the smell – oh my – the smell is intoxicating – it is oh so good it’s like walking into blueberry and raspberry fields in the heat of summer where the fresh fruit is really ripe and you’re blown off your feet by the intensity of the fruit. I’ve actually got the opened packet on my desk right now because I can’t bring myself to put it away it’s making my whole room smell of berries and I love it.

When made up the berry aroma is softened somewhat and you are given a tight generic berry smell mingled with an almost soft floral fragrance and rounded off by the smell of shortcrust pastry; it’s different, a good different and gives you a hint of what’s to come. The initial taste is not as sweet as I thought it would be, but this turns out to be a good thing because what you get instead is a very good approximation of a blueberry and raspberry compote mingled with a tart pastry-esque taste thanks to the black tea, oils and apple juice which is just a tiny bit bitter in a very good way. The aftertaste is where this tea takes it off there’s no bitterness in the aftertaste at all, instead, the tea really packs a punch here delivering an intensified version of the first sip really amping up the sweetness and flavour of the berries. This carries over into sip after sip resulting in the tea tasting sweeter as you finish off your cup.

I think this works really well as an after dinner tea as it’s not particularly strong and can satisfy those sweet night time cravings. It would also pair well with a sweet cake in the afternoon.

I highly recommend this to sweet-toothes and berry lovers and particularly for those who are seeking a non hibiscus berry tea or a less sweet berry tea as it definitely isn’t as sweet as a lot of other berry teas on the market and the fact that everything is natural is really evident in the taste – the tea is of an impressive high quality.

I’m off to have my sixth cup of the night…

Glad you like this one too Winter. We boost the sweetness (when really craving cake but trying to be good) with organic apple juice concentrate which works well with the tartness of the berries (especially when cold). We ended up using Berry Bomb as our iced tea at the Farmers Markets last Saturday and we muddled it with cinnamon and pear which went down a treat.

Winter Salo

I think the apple juice is a fantastic idea because it really is delicious. I put raspberries in with mine it makes the berry flavours really pop… I never thought to put peer with it what an interesting idea.

So its good hot? I read the description on the RH website and thought it would be a perfect iced tea in summer (maybe with some champers or vodka for a Christmas treat?), but was unsure how it would go hot.

The Rabbit Hole

Hey @TassieTeaGirl – a woman after my own heart, the addition of champers or vodka does go down well (and why wait until Christmas)!!! We think it’s pretty damn good hot too though. Be interested to see if you think the same. Cheers, Corinne.

Winter Salo

Hi TeassieTeaGirl – thanks for your comment & question – personally I prefer this hot to iced. I think it loses some of the magic when it’s iced, I don’t find it as flavoursome by as itself. But that’s just personal opinion because I’ve served it to friends who love it iced.

To me, when it’s hot it is absolutely divine, it’s so nice, it’s seriously like a sweet treat all of it’s own (although it still pairs well with actual treats!).

And if you haven’t tried The Rabbit Hole – I highly recommend you do they have awesome customer service and the postage is really good. :)

Despite being in the process of narrowing my tea cupboard, I went and ordered more RHTB samples. Damn you RH peeps, your teas are just too tasty, I couldn’t stay away!

I opened this this morning when I was madly finishing making lunch to brew for travel in my Timolino. Holey moley this smells like a berry farm! No, more than that. More like the smell on your hands after spending a day in the sun picking fruit. Intense, lush and authentic. Smells just as amazing when brewing. In fact, after I’d discarded my leaves from the steeper, the other half asked if he could lick out the sink becasue it smells so good. Yes, he’s a bit odd, but THIS TEA SMELLS RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING!!!!!

And now for my morning disappointment – I uncapped my timolino just as a meeting started next to my desk (my desk sits in the middle of my workplace next to a meeting space, there’s no office for it), and someone came in from outside who was wearing strong, floral perfume. Bitchface. Seriously ruining my tea experience. But underneath, the black base is nice and hasn’t gone bitter, and the berries hit the back of my mouth. Just so disappointed my first cup of this got intereferred with. Will rate when I have a more accuracte sample.

Well, sounds like she’s off the Christmas card list hey! Glad you like the look and smell of it. 2 outta 3 ain’t bad to start with. Let’s hope the next time you taste it Miss “Eau eau de toilette” will be out of sight (and smell!).

The Rabbit Hole

We love it iced it summer too, with fresh berries added, mainly for the fact that they look so darned beautiful!

My bundle of rabbit hole tea arrived this morning. I decided I would try berry bomb first. To be honest Ive thought of buying this tea for a while (based on so many glowing reviews) but havent because I’ve tried so many either disappointing or just plain awful berry flavoured black teas before (for example berry fruit from the tea centre).

I actually really like this one though. I can smell the different types of berries in it rather than the whole thing just being a random generic “berry” flavour. I can detect the raspberries and blueberries as distinct flavours rather than just rolled into one.

The black tea itself seems to fit perfectly with the berries with neither flavour, the berries or the black tea overpowering the other.

The only bad thing about this tea, I only bought a sample size.

So glad you enjoyed it Tina. Hope you like the others in your order too. Cheers, Corinne.
