This is the second of the two free samples I received from Tealated!
The dry leaf is very pungent and sweet. It smells like some sort of candy. The pink starburst? The leaves look like a type of Chinese green. Probably not gunpowder. What do I know? The little pieces of rose hips and dried raspberry make up the rest of the stuffs in the bag.
This tea reminds me of Raspberry Gardens from Celestial Seasonings. But in a good way. I hated that tea when I got it years ago. No, the tea is sweeter, and thank god, no teabag taste or bitterness from the fannings.
I like how the freeze-dried raspberries look, especially after steeping. It’s just as if I have actual fresh raspberries in my infuser basket!
Just like the first tea that I tried, Cream of White Coconut, I steeped a cup hot for right this moment and then cold-brewed the rest for my smoothies. Today I added it to a lime/grape/strawberry Swiss chard smoothie. Very Refreshing!
Flavors: Candy, Raspberry, Spinach
