drank Very Raspberry by Teajo Teas

Thank you very much, StarFevre!  I was organizing some teas today, threw this one in the steeper.   I think I steeped this perfectly, because the raspberry really shines here with a low temp.  A simple black tea with raspberry flavoring but it’s the perfect black tea to fit with the floralish raspberry flavoring.  The base is probably malty, fruity, bright itself – I don’t know, it’s hard to tell under the flavoring!   The second steep was also divine.  Surprising for an older tea, and I’d definitely steep this exactly the same in the future.  Also tasty when the cup cools in this winter house air.   It looks like Teajo is gone now, which is a shame. I’ll savor this then.
Steep #1  // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 25 minutes after boiling  // 2 minute steep
Steep #2  // 3 minutes after boiling //  3 minute steep

Raspberry has been a flavor I’ve been gravitating towards lately as well… I’ve had a think for chocolate raspberry smoothies for breakfast lately, hahaha.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
