Taster’s Review:

I’ve tried a few Raspberry Champagne blends, but I think this one is my favorite!  And the biggest surprise for me with this tea is that this blend has hibiscus and stevia in it, two ingredients I don’t like in tea blends … and I’m still loving it!

Even though the flavors are delicate, they are well-defined.  The raspberry flavor is sweet with hints of tart.  There is a beautiful floral tone to this.  The jasmine and osmanthus give it such a delightful flowery note.  The champagne is crisp.  And the nicest surprise of them all, a sweet undertone of honey.  It is a fantastic and surprising combination of flavors.

The hibiscus is a very light addition, and I think that makes a big difference here.  It adds the faintest hint of pink color to the cup, but, next to no flavor or texture.  The stevia adds a gentle sweetness without any of the weird aftertaste that I get from stevia.

This is delicious hot, but, as the weather is still rather warm, I prefer it iced.  It is very cool and refreshing.  If you’ve liked other raspberry champagne blends you’ve tried, I suggest trying this one – it may just become a new favorite like it has for me.

  1. I’ve been on the hunt for a good one after trying one from a supplier this weekend and they couldn’t tell me who any of their customers where so I could get this tea! I’ll have to try this. Sounds like just what I’m looking for.
