Taster’s Review:

Oh my! Can you say raspberry candy aroma?!? I think you can.

This tea bag smells just like raspberry candy.  Incredibly fruity and very sweet smelling. This is another tea bag that I found in a box that I have sorely neglected.  I thought I’d try this one as a nice after lunch sort of treat.  Typically right after lunch, I crave something sweet.  I’m hoping this herbal will do the trick!

I threw this tea bag in a cuppa water that was boiling for about 5 minutes.  Since there is hibiscus in this, I didn’t want to let it steep for too long.  First sip and I really am not getting any true flavors except just for a hot beverage.  So I decided to let this steep just a bit longer.

Took another sip and while this smells so sweet and candy like, the flavor is more mild and subtle.  The raspberry and rose are gentle but bring a nice quiet flavor.  There is a sweetness there but I can’t really put my finger on what is bringing the sweetness out. I see that in the ingredients listed there is vanilla, but I don’t think that is it.

I’m quite surprised with this tea.  With the fragrance that is coming from my tea cup, you’d think I was drinking the sweetest sugary raspberry tea that there ever was.  Instead I am greeted with this relaxed slightly raspberry slightly floral herbal tea.  I can barely even taste the hibiscus.  This might be one I need to experiment and play with more.  Maybe even try this one as a cold brew or iced tea.  I’m quite content with this one.

Usually I feel that The Republic of Tea has either hit or miss teas. . This one just might be a hit.

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
