For the past few months, I have been finding straight black tea just too strong for my taste. So I’ve been keeping my eye out for a good flavored black tea that is a little easier on my stomach. I have been trying fruit flavored black teas, and was very excited to try Teavana’s raspberry black tea. What I like about this tea that in addition to black tea and raspberry pieces it also has blackberry leaves. It doesn’t affect the flavor negatively at all, and blackberry leaves are very good for your health. It can sooth intestinal upset, and is good for curing a sore throat.
Teavana describes this tea as:
Full-leaf black tea with raspberry pieces and blackberry leaves.
The bright red raspberry pieces stick out from the dark black tea. The scent of the loose tea is very sweet, almost like a raspberry candy, but when brewed, the sweetness goes away somewhat and the taste is very pleasant without any added sweetener. After you drink a cup, it leaves a really good taste in your mouth, almost like you have just eaten a bunch of fresh raspberries.
