drank Raspberry by Adagio Teas
194 tasting notes

The winds outside my apartment are so loud and so intense that the flat is shaking and rumbling. It’s one of the few things I hate about living here, when it gets this windy! It seriously sounds like the building’s going to be plucked from the street an transported to Oz :( As such, I’m calming my mounting anxieties with many cups of tea. This raspberry was a gift from a kind soul with my last order.

It is just as a raspberry tea should be. The raspberry is a welcome sweet-tart addition to the black tea base, without overwhelming the flavour completely. Redolent with flavours of sunny, fresh-picked raspberries and raspberry leaf, with a softly tannic finish. It’s a perfect, simple pleasure.

I’m on my second cup, and to try and further decrease my I’m-definitely-not-going-to-die-in-a-wind-related-natural-disaster-nope-not-at-all anxieties, I blended a little of this with some Assam and served it with milk and a squizzle of vanilla syrup, because it’s very cold and between the crime and the high winds, my neighbourhood can be a really scary place, and I need all the comfort I can get.

That sounds like a very great fix to help distract you from such a terribly anxious situation!

For reals. Rail services to London are cancelled for today, and I’m supposed to be going down to the airport tomorrow morning, and I’m nervous as hell I won’t be able to get there!
