Raspberry and black tea go so well together. I usually discover raspberries in tea when I drink iced tea, but I’m very excited to see raspberry present in a hot tea. I also love the combination of raspberry and zabaglione. I’ve never had zabaglione, but it sounds creamy and delicious and destined to be a perfect combination with raspberry.
Sipping… ooh, this is a delight!
I first taste the black tea base which is smooth and bright. It then quickly fades into the tart raspberry which adds just the right amount of sweetness. The raspberry reminds me a lot of raspberry jam.. sweet, but with a bit of tartness as well. I don’t really taste much of the zabaglione which is a bit disappointing. I think that a custardy, creamy flavor would have made this tea even better. It’s slightly soft in the beginning of the sip, but is far too weak to appreciate.
As far as a raspberry tea goes, though, this one is a great choice! I would give this one a try if it’s reblended in the future. If not for a while, though, 52Teas has other brilliant blends to enjoy!
Here’s the scoop!
