So like others have mentioned, this tea smells like some sort of berry cough syrup. But that’s not necessarily a BAD thing—I actually enjoyed the smell as a kid. There’s also a creamy note, probably from the white chocolate.
When steeping, it turns a light brownish color. There’s a noticeable oil slick on the top of the tea, probably from the chocolate melting, that looks a bit unappetizing. My first sip was underwhelming—it tasted GOOD, but lacked flavor. So I let it steep for another 5 minutes, and tried it again. I definitely can taste the “raspberry cream” part of this tea. It’s still pretty light and muted, though. Reminds me a bit of Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, without the rhubarb of course.
If you like a strong, bold flavor in your tea, a satchet of this won’t be enough. If I had this in loose form, I would have doubled the amount of tea. Because after steeping for 10 minutes, it’s still pretty blah.
Not really excited to try this again unless I get another sample. Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait is a better choice, IMO.
