Rockville Raspberry Tea

A Geography Tea Lesson with Rockville Raspberry Black Tea from Charleston Tea Plantation. . .

They say that tea tastes different depending on the soil, weather, elevation, location, etc. Which always sounded silly to me, until I started really getting into tea. And now I’m all “this has a kick, probably a Darjeeling” or “malty! Assam, maybe!” My husband thought I was joking at first. It’s not a joke. It’s DEAD SERIOUS. This tea is AMERICAN tea. U-S-A! U-S-A! It has a raisin-y underbelly that I find a lot in black teas, usually Ceylon. Is South Carolina like Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) in weather? To do some really rudimentary research, I pulled up a world Read More

Raspberry Champagne from The Love Tea Company. . . . .

I recently discovered The Love Tea Company  while I was online and  I was instantly enthralled with them.  Their website, their message, their mission, and their overall theme just struck a chord with me. The Love Tea Company was founded with the idea that companies should give something back.  Using purposeful purchasing , The Love Tea Company is doing just that.  In the vein of companies like Tom’s Shoes, The Love Tea Company has built their company around supporting Mental Wellness.   Part of The Love Tea Company’s mission is to donate 25% of their net profit to The Flagg Foundation Read More

Passion Berry Jolt from Tiesta Tea. . . . .

This tea is FIERCE. It’s a black tea with super-vibrant raspberry/passionfruit flavor. The tea is robust. The flavor is spiky. The flower petals are lovely. You know how Rihanna had that red hair for a while? And it was really hot and bright and worked on her? That is this tea. It’s like Rihanna, turned into a tea. It’s a fast-paced hip-hop album of a tea. This tea will not mince words with you and tell you that the dress works when it does not. This tea will not pretend to like that guy you’re dating if he’s a wasteoid. Read More

Raspberry Zabaglione Black Tea from 52Teas. . . . .

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 Read More

White Tea Raspberry from Tea of Life. . . . .

Growing up, my parents had the MOST beautiful, delicious raspberry bushes growing on the side of our garage. I remember going out with clean empty yogurt containers (reuse, reduce, recycle, anyone?) to fill with freshly picked berries for an afternoon snack. And you guys, these were the BEST berries– warm and sun-ripened, juicy and fresh. Now as an adult, with raspberry bushes long gone (RIP, bushes), I’m constantly holding every raspberry I eat up to the impossible standards of those juicy yard berries of my youth. When I pulled this tea from my sample pile, I knew I’d be searching Read More
