Raspberry tea: flavor highlights

There’s a lot to love about raspberry – what with its unique, playful blend of sweet and tangy notes. When added to a cup of tea, raspberry gives it a cheerful, refreshing edge, while retaining the strength and texture of your favorite tea base. Raspberry teas are generally crafted with black tea or green tea bases, though delicate caffeine-free versions are also available today in the form of raspberry flavored rooibos. Raspberry teas can contain dried raspberry bits, raspberry leaves, or natural raspberry flavoring.

Not just about the taste

Raspberries certainly pack a punch with their sweet-tart, almost candy-like scent and taste. But in the realm of tea drinking, it isn’t just the berries that take the cake. Raspberry leaves have a long history of use in medicinal drinks, especially those intended to promote digestive, respiratory and uterine health. Herbal raspberry leaf teas are believed to benefit pregnant women. However, raspberry leaf teas don’t share the delicious sweet-tart notes of their fruit based counterparts.

Tasting notes

Raspberry teas are “very fragrant and bright”, and generally “delicious with or without sweeteners”. Raspberry imparts an “enticing aroma” to black tea, making it “wonderfully fruity”. Raspberry flavored green teas are “jammy, with the barest hint of green underneath”. In all-herbal blends, the presence of raspberry gets a little more prominent, with a “tart beginning”, and a “pleasantly sweet aftertaste”. Most raspberry teas taste great hot or cold.

Tea tips

If you’re taking a shot at raspberry tea, you probably already like fruity flavors. Accent your tea with additional ingredients such as lemongrass, rose hips, hibiscus and orange peel, to create a well-rounded cup of raspberry flavored goodness. If you tend to find black teas too bitter, or green teas too ‘vegetal’, some raspberry flavoring can balance these out for you. Lastly, raspberry iced teas make delicious and refreshing summer drinks; make sure you don’t go through a raspberry flavored herbal blend without trying it iced!
