Rishi is introducing 12 new teas! I’m so happy to share my experiences with their BRAND NEW Raspberry Green Tea!
When I opened the package the Raspberry seemed to be of the dried fruit variety and a little sticky…which then seemed to make the green tea leaves sticky and/or seemed to give it a texture. The aroma was a wonderful raspberry. I think there are more Raspberry bits than actual green tea and ONE little Hibiscus sliver in the bit that I infused!
Some of you know my love/hate relationship with Hibiscus. Most Hibiscus attempts are a fail…mostly because the hibiscus is WAY over done (too much in the blend) or I find it unnecessary altogether. PLUS it’s too tarty and puckery for my liking most times. NOT this time around…the very little Rishi used of the Hibiscus seemed to assist the other flavors and worked very well with it. It didn’t interrupt the wonderful raspberry at all.
The taste of this tea is sweet and fruity and has the slightest tart to it – but like I said before…it’s very slight and actually makes sense! This infuses to a very light pinkish color. It has a nice juicy and mellow type taste with fruity highlights and I really REALLY like it and think it would be wonderful iced, too!
I’m very happy with this one and very honored to be able to try this so quickly after it’s release. Be sure to check out their other releases…you might just be surprised at what you find! AND please visit SororiTEA Sisters again soon…there are more Rishi Reviews on Tap!
