This came with a sampler pack I picked out from Della Terra. I’m just getting into tea, and trying TONS of varieties out there. Yay!
In the sample bag, you can see ton of red powder – either dried raspberries or raspberry flavoring? I steeped this once, and gave the cup to my very eager boyfriend. I took a sip of his, but did not drink the entire cup of the first steeping. And since I’m lazy, I just re-steeped the tea for my own second cup.
Very diluted, doesn’t re-steep well at all. But! It was still pleasant, but the flavorings got washed out in the first steep.
So I’ll try to judge based on the first cup. It was very sweet, and raspberry-y. But there was something kind of… off about the flavor. I’m wondering if it’s just how Della Terra flavors their tea. I’ll see if the others in my sample pack taste similar. I’m thinking it has to do with the white chocolate, coming across as a fake-candy taste that coats my tongue a little strangely. This also happened with the Smores blend, but again it’s a sweeter blend.
This was enjoyable to drink, and the boyfriend really really loved it. Just not my personal favorite.
