Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: theBeesTeas
Black tea perfectly blended with raspberry, candied lemons, chocolate, and vanilla (although raspberry & lemon flavors are more prominent). This blend also contains sumac, which adds a tart lemon-like flavor while also adding great health benefits (antioxidants) . This is a sweet and tangy blend that can be enjoyed hot or iced, but is better served hot. Black tea is caffeinated more than white tea or green tea, but considerably less than coffee.

I love playing around on Etsy. Its one of my favorite things to do when I have a few minutes to unwind. The teas that I have ordered from the different shops haven’t all been that great. Some of them just didn’t have a whole lot going for them. But that is not the case with this tea.
When you open the bag and smell the dry leaves, you are greeted with a delightful raspberry lemon smell. Very bakery like. There are huge chunks of raspberry and candied lemon pieces. The tea looks exactly like the picture on the site. That doesn’t always happen.
Once brewed up, you have yourself a delightful cuppa of a tea that tastes exactly like its name. This tea tastes like a raspberry lemon tart!!! Fresh, creamy, tart, berry, lemon goodness. Yum!! This is a beautiful dessert tea. The vanilla adds sweetness to the tea and there is a very tart like flavor that lends itself to a fresh bakery taste. The black tea base gives the tea a rich background for the rest of the flavors to play off of. I don’t pick up the chocolate flavor but in the description of the tea, it said that the raspberry and lemon were the most noticeable flavors.
I’m extremely impressed and pleased with this tea. This tea isn’t going to last long around me.
Well done theBeesTeas. Well done.
