Taster’s Review:

Oh my! Can you say raspberry candy aroma?!? I think you can.

This tea bag smells just like raspberry candy.  Incredibly fruity and very sweet smelling. This is another tea bag that I found in a box that I have sorely neglected.  I thought I’d try this one as a nice after lunch sort of treat.  Typically right after lunch, I crave something sweet.  I’m hoping this herbal will do the trick!

I threw this tea bag in a cuppa water that was boiling for about 5 minutes.  Since there is hibiscus in this, I didn’t want to let it steep for too long.  First sip and I really am not getting any true flavors except just for a hot beverage.  So I decided to let this steep just a bit longer.

Took another sip and while this smells so sweet and candy like, the flavor is more mild and subtle.  The raspberry and rose are gentle but bring a nice quiet flavor.  There is a sweetness there but I can’t really put my finger on what is bringing the sweetness out. I see that in the ingredients listed there is vanilla, but I don’t think that is it.

I’m quite surprised with this tea.  With the fragrance that is coming from my tea cup, you’d think I was drinking the sweetest sugary raspberry tea that there ever was.  Instead I am greeted with this relaxed slightly raspberry slightly floral herbal tea.  I can barely even taste the hibiscus.  This might be one I need to experiment and play with more.  Maybe even try this one as a cold brew or iced tea.  I’m quite content with this one.

Usually I feel that The Republic of Tea has either hit or miss teas. . This one just might be a hit.
