Review of Raspberry Earl

4 of 103 of 53 of 550 of 100

I had the opportunity to sample this tea at a friend's house.

I find the idea of a raspberry-flavored Earl Grey to be a bit strange: raspberry is not a flavor that I would think of going well with Earl Grey tea.

This blend works, however. I don't like it as much as a regular Earl Grey, but it's really not bad.

The flavor is moderately bitter, and the base tea has some strength. The bergamot presence is also moderate, not overwhelming, and the raspberry is just the right amount to contrast and blend without overpowering or being overpowered.

Although this is not a tea I'd drink on a regular basis, I think it is well-executed. If you go for flavored teas like this, it would certainly be worth checking out.
