CitizenTea’s Raspberry Lime | Tea Review

CitizenTea Raspberry Lime spoon

The great thing about sets of tea is you get to experience teas you normally may not! Fruit and herbal teas generally are not my go-to picks. However, what is not to love about these cute butterfly sugar confettis!

Description: “A juicy, refreshing blend of raspberry, lime and apple.”

Review: I loved how these look – the little butterflies really made this blend pop. The smell from the dry and wet blend was very strong lime and I only faintly was able to detect the raspberries and hibiscus. The liquor was a lovely surprise: it was a pink colour and had a nutty smell. For anyone who is familiar with DAVIDsTEA’ Forever Nuts, this is what the liquor reminded me of!

As expected, the liquor had a very strong and predominate lime smell with a hint of sweet and tartness. However, I kept tasting a bitterness during the tail end. I read CitizenTea’s website, and it mentioned that this could be sweetened and iced, which I think would be a better way to enjoy this blend. I find blends that lean more towards being iced tend to be a bit overly sweet and personally not for me (2.5/5 rating).
