Raspberry Chocolate from TeaGschwender is an aromatic wonder! How the senses are livened up by fresh juicy raspberry almost tingling and making the nose feel sparkly if that makes sense, to the deep aroma of chocolate it its natural form – its amazing! The berry notes in this tea are perfection and the chocolate smells like a very nice quality one at that! I am a bit of a chocolate snob so I am impressed by the aroma alone!
Yes it almost smells too good to drink, almost!
The flavor does not disappoint! The raspberry notes are bright and cheerful, not too tart, not too sweet, just like ripe, fresh, juicy raspberries! The chocolate is delicious! As I said I am a chocolate snob, I prefer high quality thus usually expensive chocolate. I can’t stand a tea that has artificial chocolate flavor, like that dollar store chocolate you can get around easter to fill a basket..YUCK!
The tea steeps nicely leaving a lovely aroma in the home, and is again, another perfect holiday or any day tea. I would say this is a dessert tea but I imagine adding some cream would be simply sinful!
The mouthfeel however is surprisingly light, not very robust at all considering the heavier chocolate flavor. This I bet would also be amazing iced or cold steeped!
Another winner from TeaGschwender! Its no surprise but very delightful indeed!
