I love this tea. It's my new favorite. I thought it would be too sweet, but it's perfect. It's a nice flavor all year round!
This is pure raspberry! It smells unreal right out of the tin and tastes like you're eating fresh raspberries. This tea is fantastic. Please keep this in bulk!
I sort of stumbled upon Tea Forte when it was offered to me at a salon; I remember really liking it so when I stumbled upon some in a local shop, I grabbed a sampler. I eventually made my way through the sampler and finally stumbled upon this delicious treat. It was love at first sip; I promptly ordered a tin of this because I simply couldn't imagine life going on without more. I love raspberries and this is like eating fresh raspberries on sunny New England day. Sweet but tart and just oh so delicious!
Holy moly, this has a lot of hibiscus! As soon as I saw the liquor was a deep red, I knew immediately that there was a lot of hibiscus in this tisane. I had to add A LOT of agave nectar to the cup to make it drinkable! Once there was enough, I could appreciate the raspberry, apple, blackberry and orange flavours. For it to be enjoyable for me, I'd need to have the hibiscus scaled back. I don't like having to add a lot of sugar to make a tisane palatable for me.
This tea is like drinking a cup of fresh raspberries! I have never tasted anything - candy, chocolates, soda – anything with a more genuine raspberry flavor. Terrific!!!
This hibiscus-based tea is an absolutely wonderful blend. The sweetness of the raspberry flavor is just enough to balance the tartness of the hibiscus, and the apples, blackberries and oranges add a nice crisp finish. An incredible tea, all told.
I am new to flavored tea and this one is by far my favorite because it tastes a good as it smells. I hope they start making a caffeine-free version.
I just tried this one and I love it.
This is my favorite raspberry tea! I have tried any and every raspberry tea around and nothing comes close to the fresh, natural and true raspberry taste of RASPBERRY NECTAR.
I love all the Tea Forte Teas, but this is probably my favorite! The flavor is perfect...it's sweet enough that you don't even need to add sweetener to it. Perfect as it is! http://reviewthis213.blogspot.com/2010/04/tea-forte-review.html
I was so cold and wanted something warm and different. I ordered this at a restaurant and was simply stunned by the flavor. I would have sworn I was drinking pure raspberry juice. There is no after-taste and one infuser goes a long, long ways and makes several cups. LOVE IT!
"This is a raspberry delight! Many raspberry teas taste mostly like raspberry leaf rather than raspberry fruit, but this one is so fruity, you could almost swear you feel the little drupelets and seeds! The color of the brew is a delightful deep garnet, the aroma starts getting your mouth ready to taste fruit, and then you taste a whole mouthful of fresh fruit. Wonderful! Being an herbal tea, it’s caffeine-free. From the ingredients, I’d say it also packs a good dose of Vitamin C." <p>Read the full detailed review at: <a href="http://www.teareviewblog.com/?p=6553" target="_blank">www.teareviewblog.com</a>
