Where To Buy: Rishi Tea
A blend of white teas combined with succulent plum and wild forest berries. It’s juicy with a deep ruby colored infusion that’s tart, fruity and naturally refreshing.
If you have followed this blog for a while now you may have noticed I tend to make special notes about plums from time to time. They aren’t necessarily my favorite fruit but they are on my top fruits list! The reason I mention them here on SororiTEA Sisters is because I sometime find an ingredient that I am on the constant search for that perfect taste or flavor or aroma or feel IN a tea. Plum is one of those flavors! Each time I see a tea with Plum in it – I will most likely try it. With Plum – specifically – I am looking for a plumpiness to it even in my tea! So I am looking for a plump and juicy plum flavored tea. Not one that is artificial tasting or barely there. I guess my plum tastes are quite specific one could say.
I’m not going to tell you that Plum Berry is my favorite Plum tea because it isn’t. BUT…I am going to tell you what I do like about this tea and why it’s different and why I would have another cuppa!
The first thing that came to mind when I smelled this DRY and prior to infusing was KOOL AID! Once infused it does smell more like plum and maybe a hint of raspberry. I prefer the infused aroma better than the dry. It is pretty juicy smelling!
Thumbs up to Rishi for creativity! It’s quite plum and berry like and it’s juicy but you can also taste the white tea a little underneath. It might be a little too flavored for some white tea purists but I think it’s alright! If you are looking for a plum or berry fix and need something a little different – you might want to try this one!
