I’m not sure if this is the RiverTea this tea is from! I just had to add it to the system.
’Here’s Hoping’ traveling teabox Round #2 // Tea #16
I love the gorgeous dark green leaves of this one with the magenta colored raspberry pieces. It reminds me of the dark green/pink begonia I’m planning on buying soon.

I used 1 1/2 teaspoons! The parameters on the pouch say 190 degrees but I was busy doing things and accidentally waited too long. The flavor is very nice: RASPBERRY. Juicy ripe raspberries! More realistic, but sometimes candyish. I’m not sure why I can’t tell the difference, as I’ve been eating raspberries lately. The oolong peeks through once in a while. The color of the cup is a bright yellow.
Steep #2 // 15 min after boiling // 3 min
Another wonderful cup with just as much raspberry somehow. Delicious! I don’t typically see a dark green oolong, so I would have liked to try this one without the raspberry, but at least the flavor wasn’t disastrous. I’m trying to find this tea company but I don’t see a website anywhere… if it’s the same company on Steepster, they look like they have interesting blends but some of them have odd names like “Sparkling Lunch”.
