You are walking down the street, and you look into the window of a pastry shop. Sitting there on the second shelf is a small raspberry tart, a thin and buttery crust with a light,
white chocolate filling, and crisp fresh raspberries on the top. The kind of tart you rarely would treat yourself too. That is the taste of this tea.
I have not always been a fan of raspberries, but I have always been a fan of sweet teas. From the first sip, I could taste the crumbly crust, the white chocolate and the fresh slightly tart raspberries. It mirrored a raspberry tart to perfection, despite being names raspberry cream pie. The tea is rather sweet at first but the raspberries tartness could be tasted after the initial sip.
Recently dessert teas from DAVIDsTEA have been just shocking me with the way that a water based beverage could make a dessert that does not taste watered down.
My critique would be that it was so much like a raspberry tart, that I had to finish my cup in two sittings. Luckily I had it brewed in a tea press and it was kept warm. It is a very rich tea, and similar to a very rich dessert you cannot have too much at once.
