Finally trying this one from the 52Teas order I made months ago. It’s the last one I had left to try, and I was really craving fruit tea tonight so it seemed perfect.
Dry this is definitely very, very sweet raspberry! It’s really borderline between candy and realistic raspberries too. It’s supposed to be like Raspberry Poptarts, right? I suppose that would make sense. Raspberry poptarts are like very sugared up raspberry jam infused biscuits. That’s a weird poptart description, but fuck it.
Steeped up; this is pretty damn good! It’s very flavourful and very raspberry, and I do get a glaze/icing vibe from it on top of the honey/hay notes in the base. Anything pastry/bread like is lost on me though. Oh well, it’s still quite tasty! I’m imagining it’d be good iced or cold brewed, so that’s probably how I’ll try it next time.
So concluding thoughts: I think this is yummy and really flavourful with a superb raspberry taste. Having never had Hindbaersnitter I can’t comment with certainty as to the accuracy of the flavour, but I can vaguely see the comparison to Raspberry Poptarts. I think I will happily finish off the rest of the pouch, but if this were to be reblended (and assuming it would taste the same) would I get it again? Probably not; I think I could find better raspberry white tea for a better price, given that a pouch if this is only an ounce of tea.
Still, I’m happy drinking it right now! Thanks Marzipan for suggesting this one to Frank!
