From DAVIDsTEA

We’re just gonna go ahead and say it – we’re total raspberry addicts. Seriously, how can anyone resist these deliciously tempting berries? They’re sweet, fruity and bursting with summer freshness. We all know raspberries taste great straight up. But have you tried them as an iced tea? Gamechanger. We kicked this blend up a notch with a creamy swirl of yogurt. The result? An icy treat that tastes just like a raspberry fro-yo. We won’t judge if you go back for seconds.

Ingredients: Apple (apple, citric acid), sugar, raisins, hibiscus blossom s, carrot, yogurt pieces (yogurt powder, sugar, maltodextrin, modified starch, citric acid), beetroot, raspberry, natural and artificial raspberry and strawberry-cream flavouring.

Price per 50g: $7.98

For the sipdown prompt, “a raspberry tea.” Prepared cold brew.

I was surprised to find that this is blue raspberry flavored, but as that is a flavor I enjoy and one I don’t think I’ve encountered in tea before, I’m fine with it. It steeps a deep hibi red but there is so much sweetness here there is only a vague hint of fruity tartness… Mostly I get a strong fruit punch flavor followed by sweet blue raspberry. It’s a very thirst-quenching cold tea, which is how I plan to finish this… I’m not sure how I’d feel about the flavor warm, though.

This one definitely isn’t intentionally blue raspberry flavoured, but I’m happy you liked it regardless!

At this point it’s more surprising when I dislike a hibiscus fruit blend, and yet.

“Frozen raspberry” was begging to be made iced, but I’m sticking to hot right now, and I was glad I did. It’s a bold, tart blend that took well to my stronger steep. The sugar and yogurt pieces are getting close to overkill, though thankfully this particular cup was still primarily hibiscus and raspberry.

I can’t put a finger on what exactly makes this “frozen”, but the name fits.

I’ve heard that this is very good cold brewed, but never tried it myself!

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #112 overall / Tea #28 for March / #drinkwhatyouown February 12/25

Wednesday 3/24/21 — DT Frozen Raspberry. Pitcher pack time! And trying to get through my January/February DIY advent calendar (aka #drinkwhatyouown).. I need to work on March too but they are all green teas and today is day 11 in a row and my only day off for all of last week and all of this week is tomorrow Thurs so I’ll do a few green teas + work on my Steepster Sipdown Mad(ness) bracket. I generally drink cold-brew pitchers of tea (flavored and traditional) and hot lattes. Occasionally a hot cuppa, a drink out (like from a cafe / Starbucks / store bottled kombucha / etc), but I’m not really a sweetener kind of person. I’ve always been a Frozen Raspberry fan but as I was sipping a bunch last night with a spicy dinner my boyfriend made, I was really struck with how SWEET this tea is. I wonder if I’d still enjoy this tea if there wasn’t as much sugar in it? The DT Raspberry Cream Pie is tooooo sweet for me, this one is okay, maybe I could find something to mix it with, so the sweetness isn’t as strong for me?

I used this as iced tea over the summer and loved it. At the end of summer, I was runningout of tea so I made another David’s order knowing tjat I wouldn’t use up the fruity teaa before Fall. I’m trying to use up some tea and make cabinet space so I started drinking some fruity teas before bed. This taste pretty good hot as well. Fruity but warm and comforting too.

Not sure what possessed me to try a cold steep of this on a cold day, but here we are.

The dry tea in the bag smelled super strong and my nose was not pleased. It’s not one that I could just smell in the bag and enjoy the scent of. Fortunately, the smell during and after steeping was much more pleasant and doesn’t overwhelm the senses to the point of almost gagging.

As for preparation, steeped 0.75 tsp of this tea cold in my 12 oz cup in the fridge for 90 minutes and now have a tasty pinkish red drink. Very reminiscent of a raspberry freezie or snowcone while cold, though less sweet than a freezie and slighly tart—like very slightly. Plenty sweet enough to drink on its own, but leaves a lingering artificial flavour. Refreshing is a good way to describe this drink.

Also worth mentioning: I took a peek after around 1 hour of cold steeping and noticed the yogurt pieces weren’t quite dissolved, so I dipped the infuser basket a few times to break up the pieces and put it back into the fridge for the extra 30 minutes. Seems to have done the trick. Not really sure if I taste the yogurt or not though.

Cup count (12 oz) from the 27g pitcher pack: 1 (Lots more to play around with)

Would I buy this one again? Maybe, still want to try it hot too, but I do prefer this to their Just Peachy flavour I tried yesterday.

Had this as a free tea on International Women’s Day! It was really delicious, even though I had it hot. They seem to have struck the perfect balance between sweet, tart, and raspberry; I assume there’s hibiscus in here but it’s the perfect amount. Really tasty. I hope I have a bit of this hanging around somewhere.

Mastress Alita

Mmm, I love hibi teas. Sweet, tart, and raspberry sounds really nice.

Rachel

Hibiscus? Not for me! lol ;)

Sil

mmm hibby is tasty when balaned with other things

Mastress Alita

I’m that one weirdo that can drink it plain. I’m on total tea hiatus right now, but when I’m not, I run the Hibiscus Rescue Habitat on here, because I typically just see review after review on Steepster wailing on how awful a tea is because of the hibi, and I’m like, “I can give your hibi the happy home it deserves…”

Roswell Strange

I used to hate hibiscus MUCH MORE than I do now. My only frustration, now, is the amount of blends it’s in – and the fact that most tea blenders overwhelm their blends with it, ruining what would have been a good tea if the hibiscus had only been removed or added in a small level; it’s a strong flavour that can easily drown out other notes :/

Tldr; hibiscus is ok in moderation or when it is actually used in a blend with purpose/intention in terms of flavor contribution – when it’s just there to make the tea look pretty/as filler it ruins otherwise nice blends.

Rachel

Well, it’s not that I don’t like hibiscus. I like the smell of this flower. It’s just too much acidic for me and I have a real reaction: my throat goes on fire as soon as I drink! It’s not funny… lol

Mastress Alita

I’ve recently noticed I have that acidic reaction to coffee, which I used to have no problems drinking. No issues with hibi, though… I wonder what the difference is? But I definitely understand what you are saying from a GI standpoint, I have a very sensitive tummy these days.

Nattie

Yay free tea!

Kittenna

DT in particular has released a couple blends that use hibiscus very effectively. But when you get stupid teas like pina colada with hibiscus, it’s like… really??? I love acidity very much, but it doesn’t have a place in many of the teas its included in.

Evol Ving Ness

I am another hibiscus fan, but tend to prefer it straight or close to straight rather than when it is muddled up with things that don’t coexist nicely with it.

Roswell Strange

@Kittenna – yup, I would MUCH prefer something like acidified apple in a Pina Colada blend (if the blender feels like they NEED acidity) over hibiscus.

Another complaint is that it makes teas unlatte-able, many of which would be ok to latte if it wasn’t included.

I absolutely love this one. The smell on it’s own is intoxicating enough. Smells exactly like a fresh raspberry bush. It’s tart and fruity, but somehow the yogurt pieces are giving it a nice creaminess. Can’t wait to try this cold.

Okay, I don’t know if I can go back to raspberry mojito after trying this one. The raspberry flavor is similar, but this one lacks the kind of strange aftertaste the other has. Instead, the lingering flavor of this one is creaminess, as if I were eating sugar-dusted frozen raspberries. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and wish I had more than just my one ounce tin!

AMAZING! I was not a fan of the scent, it seemed too strong and in-your-face, but the taste is just out of this world! It’s excellent hot and cold, in fact I’d recommend the first cup steeped around a minute, consume hot, and then make a second cup (steep for closer to the recommended 5 minutes) and add ice. Bliss!
