The last tea review on my Review-A-Thon. I hope enjoyed the reviews today as much as I enjoyed sharing the good word about these teas!
Herbal teas. I have such a love hate relationship with them. Being one that doesn’t really dig spiced or overly gingerized tea. . . . I have a hard time finding just the right blend for my tastes. Being one that does see the health benefits of certain herbal blends (not weight loss), I’m always looking for blends that may help me with a few pain management situations I deal with on a daily if not sometimes hourly basis.
When I discovered St. Fiacre’s Farm, I was excited. They offered several different herbal blends that didn’t have that overly spiced ingredient list of my arch enemy-red rooibos. One blend instantly caught my eye- Farmer’s Wife Raspberry. This blend consists of nettle, red clover, raspberry leaf, green rooibos, and a few other ingredients- all organic. Whenever I see a blend that has red clover, I’m instantly lured in.
Using the recommended parameters, this herbal brews up beautifully. The tea has a pinkish hue and the flavors are delicate but with such wonderful flavor. With each and every sip, I take away this sweet honey like berry slightly tart flavor that makes me happy. I’m a big fan of green rooibos and love the fact this herbal is the base for this tea.
This herbal blend is smooth berry from the start with this silky honey note that flows brilliantly from the beginning to the very end. I’ve had this tea iced and the tea is just as amazing. I can’t say that I’ve seen the benefits of drinking this herbal tea just because I need to drink the tea on a more regular basis. Sometimes its hard to get in all the tea drinking you want to, manage your day correctly and drink all the water you need to. But for this tea, I really need to get my priorities in order – for being a good for you tea as far as health benefits- this tea is also good for your taste buds!

A tea blend especially for women featuring green rooibos tea with the addition of nettle leaf, red clover blossoms, red raspberry leaf and a dash of the famous elderberry. The Farmer’s Wife Tea Blend is a lovely green tea accented with fruity and floral notes and raspberry hint. This would make a delectable white chocolate raspberry TEA mocha! On the simple side its a wonderful morning tea with a light hint of raspberry to refresh.

Raspberry leaf comes in a round sachet. It smells just like banana, but this tea is made from raspberry leaf. Brewed up with boiled fresh water, this tea just still has a banana like aroma.
One sip and this tea tastes just like you are eating a fresh banana. I tried this tea on two different occasions. I still couldn’t taste any raspberry or any of the flavors that a few of the other Sisters got. . . . for me I could only taste banana.
I tried to enjoy this tea. I really did but unfortunately, raspberry leaf isn’t for me. I am not a fan of anything banana flavor. If you love banana, I would say this tea is for you!
