Ladies and gentlemen I give you… raspberry echinacea matcha lemonade! 1 bag steeped in a cup of boiling water for 3 min, add 1 packet of stevia, let sit til it’s room temp, refrigerate, then add 2TB lemon juice and a tsp of matcha and shake. Mostly berry, a bit of lemonade and a vegetal matcha finish. I think I’m gonna add RoT’s Mango Chilli Green Bush and ginger next time for the ULTIMATE cold kicker.

What a lovely gift to myself, this tea – while going through my tax receipts for 2015, I found a small baggie of this left from (assumedly) somewhere in the UK. Woohoo!

I know I sent a bunch of this back to folks, but like me, they forgot to review it. Well, I’ve run out now, so it’s about time I reviewed it!

Very, very raspberry, almost tart raspberry. I’m always a bit surprised. As long as I sweeten it, that is.. left on it’s own, it’s more tart herbal than anything. I won’t go out of my way to find this again, but I won’t say no, either.

Ugh, I am ILL. Not only that, I’m at work. At work and ill is a bad, bad combination. It’s also nearly Christmas, which makes it all doubly rubbish because I was hoping this might be the year when I actually managed to escape being ill on Christmas Day. Probably this will not be the case. In an effort to try and make it the case, though, I’ll be drinking this tea on repeat all day. My first choice would have been Bluebird’s Kung Flu Fighter, but I’m out of that and it’s a bit late to be ordering any now. So I have this. It actually has a reasonably high proportion of Echinacea (20%) which is better than most similar teas I looked at in the supermarket yeterday (5%, for the most part). I’m hoping it’ll do at least a little bit of good.

Taste wise, it’s not too bad. It’s mostly hibiscus, and it’s a little tart and sour in the way of most Twinings fruit infusions. There’s the tiniest hint of raspberry, but it’s mostly drowned out except in the scent. The Echinacea is a little earthy and helps to augment the tartness a bit, but I have to be honest and say that I’m not drinking this for the flavour. If I was, I wouldn’t be particularly impressed.

I think it’s fair to say that I wouldn’t drink this one if I wasn’t ill, but as something that’s currently making me feel better it deserves a reasonable rating.

TBH I kinda wish there was actually raspberry leaf in this tea.

Today I made it in a travel mug and I’ve brought it to work. It tastes a bit more like dirt, probably because of the echinacea root. And it’s sourer. More sour. Whatever. Probably due to the increased heat preservation of the travel mug VS a regular mug.

I still kinda like it. And I really hope I don’t get sick.

Indigobloom

stay healthy!!

keychange

I hope you don’t get sick either! and I know what you mean about increased heat preservation changing flavours. Weird how that works.

OMGsrsly

Thanks, Indigobloom!

And Keychange, I also think that a cold ceramic mug cools the water a lot more and faster than a vacuum sealed metal one.

keychange

Yeah exactly. And the heat retention affects the flavor, even after the tea in a steel mug has cooled…

OMGsrsly

Yup. :) In some ways I’m glad my steel mugs don’t fit my steeping baskets. Forces me to brew in a cup or a small tea pot before pouring my tea into the mug.

I usually don’t like Twinings red fruits infusions, but in this case I found this one really tasty and delicious. I’m drinking it right now (Italy – 9pm) while watching Doctor Who ;) and my evening couldn’t be more relaxing. Really loved it!

I very rarely drink herbal teas. Many of them are like drinking hot sugarless juice. I don’t care for that. This is ok I guess. I wish it tasted more like raspberry but it’s mostly hibiscus and echinacea.

I used to drink this infusion a lot, but after drinking more loose leaf, this one tastes less fresh in comparison. It also tastes slightly artificial… I wonder whether the added flavourings were natural. Having said that, in order to get any flavour into a fruit tea in a tea bag variety, I guess you have to add extra flavourings. I prefer my drinks to be a bit more natural tasting, but then again I have lots of friends who don’t drink infusions that much but like this one because of the stronger taste and deep red colour. I like Twinings tea a lot, but I’ll gladly give this one to my friends.

At first I thought it tasted a little insipid – for fruit flavour it doesn’t have a patch on Celestial Seasonings or Ringtons – but after drinking for a little while I decided it was subtle. One for when I need something fruity but not too overbearing.
