From Verdant Tea (Special)

Raspberry leaf is a very popular herb in traditional medicine. Its unique deep vegetal flavor captivated us enough to explore it through blending. Orange peel, rooibos, chrysanthemum and vanilla balance out the intensity of the raspberry leaf and bring out its sweet fruity notes.

Here we go, the last tea from this month’s Blends Club. I don’t have any experience with raspberry leaf, so I have no concept of what this might taste like. I will say that this is the most annoying tea ever to measure… It’s big fluffy raspberry leaf mixed with tiny pieces of citrus peel and rooibos, so you have to stir it ten times to give it anywhere near combined, and even then the rooibos immediately plummets to the bottom, taking most of the citrus peel with it. Ugh. I had to empty my pouch into a tin to be able to leaf this properly and make sure I got some of everything. Not off to a good start! The dry leaf smells vaguely sweet and musty, I guess from the raspberry leaf? I steeped about two teaspoons for 5 minutes in boiling water.

Once the tea is steeped, I can definitely smell the rooibos along with that odd musty somewhat raw herbal/grassy scent. The taste is pretty meh, I guess I’m not a fan of raspberry leaf. It’s very musty and dry in the mouth, but the aftertaste is nice enough. I guess I could draw some connections to chamomile…? But in a weird raw herb way. Not for me!

Yeah raspberry leaf is not something I drink for its flavor, purely for its medicinal qualities! But I can’t do rooibos so I won’t be trying this one anyway.
