drank Raspberry by Ambiance
1083 tasting notes

Sigh, another kitchen cleanout tea.

This caffeine-free Raspberry teabag has a lot of ingredients but they’re all well-balanced. I really appreciate the fact that there are freeze-dried raspberries in this and not just flavouring. The taste does not lie. Tart raspberry mostly, starts out kind of drying at the beginning of the cup but ends on a sweeter note, maybe from the blackberry leaves. Also a very noticeable cooling sensation after I’ve finished. This would be great for a summer day, brewed hot then iced with a sprinkle of your sweetener of choice. I think this tea came from Smart and Final or Grocery Outlet and was cheap.

Flavors: Drying, Hibiscus, Mint, Raspberry, Rosehips, Sweet, Tart

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more 8 OZ / 236 ML

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
