A bowl of Raspberries and cream is a crowd pleaser for an after dinner dessert. This delightful black tea blended with raspberries and creamy flavoring will not disappoint. Also makes an excellent iced tea. Enjoy this black tea from morning till night.
This tea is delightful.
I really like that the black tea base is an Assam rather than a Ceylon (as is typically used in flavored teas) – the Assam gives this tea a stronger presence, it is bold and brisk! It has a malty note to it that really compliments the cream flavor.
This Assam base has a richness and depth of flavor that most Ceylon teas just seem to lack. However, it is not so strong that it overpowers the flavors, but that being said – this is TEA and tea is the most prominent flavor of this cup.
The raspberry flavor is light, sweet and juicy. It has that gentle berry tartness at the finish that tickles the tongue. Delicious!
The cream flavor is soft and sweet – not at all cloying – and I think that it gives just enough softness to the overall cup to cut through some of the harsher notes of the Assam – making this an extraordinarily palatable tea. It’s a pleasure to drink!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
