I thought that this would be a lovely last tea from 52Teas before the big transition over to new owners. I was really looking forward to the raspberry and cake flavors, but it’s really not at all what it should be. I mostly taste the black tea base with a tiny bit of artificial raspberry. I think there is something in the background that is trying to be cake, but it just tastes strange. It’s a fine fake raspberry black tea blend, but if you’re looking for raspberry birthday cake, it’s definitely not here. I think there are other plain raspberry teas that taste much more natural, too.
Well, although I’m disappointed with this one, I’m excited to try some of the new flavors that the new 52Teas will be creating!
