Raspberry, I find, is a very temperamental flavour. When it’s just right, it’s sensational. But, if you don’t get it to the correct level of sweet-tangy, it’s not quite right for me, and not my first choice. Raspberry-flavoured chocolate often falls into this category for me, though I’ve seen a tea or two combine the two successfully.
This tea… has a nice tang to it, but it falls short of the mark for me on the raspberriness. It’s in that muddled not-quite sweet-tangy-real-raspberry flavour which… never really satisfies me. Adding sugar does brighten it a bit, but doesn’t take it to my happy place with raspberry, unfortunately.
