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!
