Thank you River Tea for this sample. I’m just sorry that it’s taken me so long to review this blend.
It’s a nice enough looking blend and each ingredient is easily spotted. The raspberries are rather finely chopped into small pieces but there are quite a few of them scattered around. The blend as a whole has a sweet berry aroma that is rather delicate.
Steeping this blend as per the instructions.
The blend is thickly Pu Erh but it’s nice as a base, like mild damp earth and musk. In the background behind is a sweet fruity flavour, like sweet orange but very mild. Not sure I can taste the raspberry per say but the after taste has a sour, berry like flavour (at a stretch).
I think it would be nice if the fruit was a little stronger but that’s just my personal opinion. Something to lift it up, at times it tastes like an ordinary unflavoured Pu Erh.
