I have a canister of fruit sangria Argo tea that was given to me from a friend that knows I love Argo Tea’s fruit sangria, and the aroma that raspberry riot lemon mate gives right when you open the bag instantly reminded me of fruit sangria.
This is a good thing, as I absolutely love bright fruity teas that give you such a great amount of flavor explosions in your mouth, and the fruity scents just overwhelm your nostrils.
It doesn’t stop, as you steep it still gives that overpowering fruity scent, as does when you are finished, you are engulfed in fruit scented clouds.
Once the brew hits your lips, it is more raspberry than anything, which can be good, but is not quite as good as the complete epicness that is Argo’s fruit sangria.
It is a very dark tea, not as bright as most berry teas, but more leaning towards black teas with the flowers and rosebuds, but I do appreciate the underlying citrus blend.
The taste is not as overwhelming as the aroma, but it is a good fruit mate tea nonetheless, and would be a very enjoyable late afternoon or early evening tea.
