Stash Wild Raspberry Herbal Tea
A potent raspberry taste from a bag
Summary : Someone who likes raspberries will definitely
like this rather strong and colorful tea from Stash.
Review : Having no expectations about a tea is a very
good thing to have whenever you try a new tea. I've learned through painful
trial and error that having expectations about how a tea will taste usually
ends up disappointing me. So, whenever humanly possible, I approach all
new teas anymore with no expectations whatsoever. True, thats the theory,
and it doesn't always work, but at least when I tried the Wild Raspberry
Herbal Tea from Stash, I can honestly say I tasted the tea with an open
Now, I'm not a huge fan of raspberries, admittedly. However, the tea
(which was bagged) did have a nice aroma about it once I removed the
tea bag from the foil container. And my hopes - yes, here they come -
began to develop once I poured the boiling water over the tea. Almost
immediately, the color of the tea turned a nice, rather attractive looking
light purple. And by the time the tea got done brewing, the color of
the tea was a rather dark puple. All good signs that got my hopes up
for this tea. See how easy it is for theory to melt away when it comes
So, what did this tea taste like? Well...how about raspberries. I'm
not going to say it tastes like what a raspberry straight off the vine
does, BUT, it still does resemble the taste of raspberries. Now, the
reason the Wild Raspberry Tea from Stash probably doesn't taste strictly
like raspberries is because what goes into it. The tea consists of hibiscus
flowers, rosehips, orange peel, lemongrass, licorice powder, citric acid
and natural raspberry flavors.
One interesting thing about the teas flavor is that it is VERY strong.
Many bagged teas I've come across tend to have rather light flavors,
but not this one. When you drink this tea you'll definitely get the flavor
full in your face - it is that strong. Moreover, as strange as it sounds,
this tea is rather "heavy". Something about the rather strong taste of
the tea also made it seem "heavy" in some fashion.
Now, I personally didn't really much care for the flavor of this tea.
Then again, it could be simply because I'm not a fan of raspberries.
However, if you do like raspberries more than I do, I would suggest giving
this tea a try.
Recommendation : If you like raspberries, the tea is
definitely worth a try, especially if you want a strong raspberry taste.
