Bigelow Red Raspberry Herbal Tea Review

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 free).

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.
