When I got this one right it was simply amazing. Two out of half a dozen steeps tasted of a potent raspberry infused honey. Nectar of the gods.

While this was also good the other four times, the couple of awesome experiences set the bar really high and made me envious every time it didn’t turn out like that. It was often just not enough raspberry, or not enough honey, or a little too much black tea astringency.

Amariel/Plunkybug recommended this one, and now I’m hooked.. although it sometimes feels a little like gambling as the flavours aren’t always consistent. Raspberries and honey make me weak.

Thank you for the sample, Amarial!

This is pretty darn good, but unfortunately doesn’t hold a candle to even the smell of the raspberry tea I tried to make this morning.

The black tea almost overpowers the delicate raspberry and honey flavours. I was hoping for something with a bit more kick.

So while I’m enjoying this mug of tea, it’s not exactly what I was hoping for. Oh well! I can continue looking for a raspberry black tea, I don’t mind. :)

(PS. I’m at 212 again, plus I still have all of MissB’s teas and the samples Dexter shared. Umm.)

It’s more honey than raspberry to me.

I think I was hoping for more raspberry. :) It was still good, just not exactly what I had in mind.

Plunkybug

Maybe cold steep it over the summer with some frozen raspberries?

I picked up a sample of this at the suggestion to try it from Bear With Me when we visited Janet yesterday. I have to be honest and say I am not the biggest raspberry fan, but the honey in this, at least the dry state, was WOW, and I thought it would probably mellow the parts of the raspberry I don’t like so much. And I was right. The honey is the dominant flavour of the tea, with the juicy raspberry underneath. Now, as I was on my way to work, I did add milk to this as I was unsure of the astringency of the base, however, I would like to try this without milk. I think the milk may have masked too much of the flavour. I also suspect that this would make an excellent cold brew, especially refreshing when the weather is warmer.

I’m grateful for the suggestion and am glad to have tried it.

Oh my gosh that sounds amazing.

Plunkybug

I can save you a few spoons from my sample and send with the Bird Pick stuff. I need to see if I have your address in my FB message history so I can get it out to you.

OMGsrsly

<3 Also, I really need to start planning another trip to the Island! Maybe I’ll be able to find a place to crash so I won’t have such a LONG day and I’ll be able to go walking and stuff too.

OMGsrsly

Whoops. I killed that with my heart. Haha.

That would be lovely! I also need to start thinking about another trip to Victoria. Maybe when my school teacher friend has some more time to hang out as well.

Plunkybug

Yes…I was talking with Bear With Me about setting up something maybe for April?

Plunkybug

I have Saturdays off now…so it makes it easier to meet up on a weekend now.

OMGsrsly

April might work! OMG, I could get ALL THE THINGS in April. Tea club sharing, Sil visit, Victoria trip, birthday. :D :D :D

Plunkybug

Would you like for me to hold the stuff I have for you til then? I can easily mail off before then though. Whatever works for you.

OMGsrsly

Since I’m not sure about April (I will try, but with work and my neck there’s no guarantee) it might be better if you mailed stuff.

Plunkybug

Sounds good. I have a few other packages to try to get out this week, so I’ll try to get it to you soon.
