NOTE: this was a free 2oz pkg that came with 52teas order for Groundhog Day. I believe it is a closeout and is no longer available/not going to be produced in future.

I am pleasantly surprised by this tea. I didn’t expect to like it, simply because I’m not a big fan of berry flavors. I also assumed the flavor/smell would be on the strong side. They dry tea had a hint of scent, but the wet leaves had none. The liquor, however, had a juicy raspberry up front with a hint of cranberry tartness on the finish. Neither berry overpowers, it’s really just a strong hint of flavor. I like that. Sugar definitely helps bring out the juiciness. I also tried adding a bit of milk, which muted the flavor but did make it feel more dessert-like (a touch of full cream would have been better I’m sure). Overall I think this is a very nicely balanced tea, and prefer it with a touch of sugar only. I can’t wait to try it as a sweet tea!

I also think this blend (or raspberry or cranberry alone) would be good with chocolate and amped up berry flavor as a dessert tea. I’ll have to check zoomdweebies site to see if they have any chocolate/berry blends…

Looks like they have chocolate cherry, chocolate orange, and chocolate strawberry. Based on this blend, I would try any one of those. They also had a chocolate sampler with those 3 listed above, and 7 more chocolate blends. 10 samples for under $10! But it’s out of stock. :-(

Yay for Zoomdweebies’ reviews!

I may bump this rating up as I experiment with it more. This was an unexpected steeping (spilled loose tea all over counter while trying to package some for Cofftea, so I scooped it up and brewed myself a cup. Don’t worry Cofftea you’re not getting counter scrapings!)

Cofftea

Haha counter scapings would be fine, it’s tea that shouldn’t be wasted:) I feel bad you spilled some on account of me.

Janefan

oh, don’t feel bad – very little was wasted (counter=clean, floor not so much), and it prompted me to try and log a tea that was probably going to sit on my shelf for a while otherwise. And I liked it!

FRANK…did someone get a little CRAN-Happy??? LOL – I see LOTS of CRAN with other things in this slew of tea Anne and I went half-zee’s on…lol…that’s ok…because I like CRAN!

The CRAN in this is calmed down by the raspberry and it works well. It’s not overly bitter or overly sweet or even overly loud or overly flavored. How’s that for being redundant? Sorry…I’ve been in a really nerdy mood for 2 days now and it’s not letting up!

Regardless…this is a nice flavored black…nom, nom.

Jillian

I would’ve thought that all those ‘Cran’ teas would be super tart. Glad that’s not the case. :)

Janefan

I agree — it’s a lot milder than this (somewhat cran-phobic) tea drinker expected. I like it!
