drank Raspberry Cocoa by Tippy's Tea
347 tasting notes

Mmm, another very nice flavoured tea from Tippy’s. :) I don’t have much to add to what other people have already said. The raspberry flavour is strong and natural-tasting. The cocoa flavour is milder – I can’t tell if the base teas have chocolatey notes, or if it’s just a good chocolate flavouring (or both). The combination is definitely reminiscent of a raspberry-flavoured dark chocolate bar. The base teas are solid and smooth, with a boldness that contributes to the dark-chocolate character of the overall experience. Second steep was less rich, but still very nice.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Raspberry

The keemun that we have is quite chocolatey and malty. We do add some organic chocolate flavour extract too, all the flavour extracts we use are from natural botanicals, not a lot, just enough to accentuate the natural chocolate notes. We were going for a raspberry dark-chocolate feel to this, like a chocolate covered raspberry. We are so glad that is what you tasted!

Well it has been over a year and everyone I know thinks my tea obsession is a bit out of hand, so… I guess I’m not a total newbie anymore. :)

I’m drinking a lot more pure tea these days, though I still love a good flavoured blend too. Current favourites: Chinese and Taiwanese blacks, fresh Chinese greens, oolongs both green and roasted, sheng puer.

I really love companies that buy directly from tea farmers, and have an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Favourites: Verdant, Whispering Pines, Eco Cha, White 2 Tea. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so I buy almost all my tea online.

For hot tea, I’m usually brewing in either a 100ml gaiwan, or a 10oz mug with a steeping basket. For cold tea, I cold brew overnight in 500ml mason jars.

My cupboard on Steepster doesn’t include small samples, just the ones I have at least 15g of. So if you see something you’re interested in, I probably have enough to share. :)
