Bigelow Red Raspberry Herbal Tea
If Raspberries are your thing, you'll
like this tea
Summary : If you = raspberries, then you'll most definitely
like this tea. This tea comes awfully close to munching on a raw raspberry.
Review : I like raspberries. OK. They aren't my favorite
fruit in existence, but they definitely rank above, say, coconut. And
so when I came across a sampler from Bigelow of Red Raspberry Tea, I
felt compelled to give this tea a try.
Here is what Bigelow says about this tea : "Here's a delicious
country fresh blend with the delightful taste of ripe, red raspberry.
You'll love Red Raspberry's invigorating flavor."
The tea contains the following ingredients : hibiscus, rose hips, apples,
elderberries, natural and artificial raspberry flavors (wheat, gluten
Now, I'll admit it here, I really had no idea what to expect from this
particular tea. Sure, it was advertised as a "raspberry tea",
but well, I've seen teas advertised for one thing that tasted nothing
remotely like what they should have been.
Additionally, I didn't have high hopes for this tea right out of the
wrapper. The tea had a very weak smell. However, once the brewing process
began, I felt a bit better since the tea quickly turned a darkish purple
color - the hallmark of a raspberry tea.
Now for the taste. Well, it wasn't the most wonderful raspberry tea
in existence. The taste was moderately strong - certainly nothing that
would take your breath away. On the other hand, while a bit weaker tasting
than other rapsberry teas I've had, the flavor of this tea was pleasant.
Indeed, one reason I think I sort of like this tea is because the flavor
wasn't overpoweringly strong.
Overall, I sort of enjoyed this tea. Or, I enjoyed it as much as I could
considering that I'm not a massive fan of raspberries to begin with.
But if you like raspberries more than I do, I say this tea is definitely
worth a try.
Recommendation : Yes. If you like raspberries, odds
are very high you'll enjoy this tea. The tea has a moderately strong
taste, not overpowring, and also provides a nice after-taste too. I'm
giving this tea 3 stars not because the tea is bad, but because it isn't
quite as tasty as some loose leaf varieties I've tried and also because
raspberries just aren't "my thing". But if raspberries are
indeed your thing, I'd rate this a 4 star tea.
