There didn't appear to be any brewing recommendations on the BourgeaTea site, so I went with a bit above my usual Ceylon default. Usually, I brew a light black tea with boiling water for three minutes. With the fruit pieces, I went for four; 1 tsp worth in 8oz. Raspberries are stubborn suckers.
The blend brewed on the lighter end of the brown spectrum. The aroma was floral, smoky, and boldly berry. I thought of it like the scent of a freshly warmed pie. The taste muted a little bit, but still maintained a hold on its flavoring. There was a tart ring on the tongue after tasting. It was sweet, light, crisp, and nowhere near bitter or dry. I wish I tasted more of the Ceylon aspect, but at least it had the region's texture down. This is the perfect tea for a novice with a caffeine sensitivity. Or something to break out at a children's party.
