This is the second tea I’ve tried from Because UR Priceless and I have to say I’m impressed. I loved their take on an earl grey and vanilla blend so I was quite excited to steep up some of this Raspberry Lemonade.
Raspberry Lemonade is a blend of organic ingredients: green tea, huge chunks of raspberries, hibiscus, lemon peel, spearmint, and licorice root. The idea of a raspberry lemonade green tea blend just makes me happy. First note impression of this tea was that the blend lends itself to a cheery note. Bright pops of red on a bed of green and peach toned ingredients. Quite striking actually.
I set about steeping the tea and loved watching the brew turn to a gorgeous pink color. Allowed the tea to steep for about 3 minutes and then cool for another minute or two. Took my first sip and was greeted with sunshine!
Bright vibrant and slightly tart notes of raspberries with a hint of lemon and mint followed up with a smooth buttery green tea love. This is one of those teas that you just want to indulge in all afternoon! I love the combination of fresh raspberries and green tea. This smooth slightly tart duo really works well with the mint allowing a refreshing tone.
Very well done and all of the flavors are balanced perfectly. Couldn’t really ask for more from a flavored green tea blend! This one shines happiness!
Here’s the scoop!

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.
