Suki Tea – Raspberry Ruffle

Time for Tea Please?

I love a good black tea and I’m more than open to trying a flavoured black tea. Today I’m trying out Suki Tea and their Raspberry Ruffle tea.


For this tea Suki blends black tea, cocoa shells, coconut flakes, freeze dried raspberry plus natural raspberry flavouring.

I’m certainly intrigued by the flavour combination and I like all the flavours individually but together ? We’ll have to wait and see.

Upon opening the tea pouch you are instantly engulfed by an intense raspberry hit, it’s just yummy !


Let’s get brewing!

The aroma while brewing changes drastically from its dried state. Instead of the raspberry singing it’s now the turn of the coconut and cocoa to start singing.

As to be expected with a black based tea, the brewed tea is of a dark brown in colour.

First sip and I’m just not sure.

The flavour is very much a mixture of all the ingredients combined. However for me I just can’t taste the black tea enough or the raspberry. Considering the dry loose leaf aroma being intensely raspberry the sipping experience doesn’t pack that raspberry punch I was hoping it would. Especially as the tea is called raspberry ruffle. Hey maybe I’m just being picky!

The tea blend itself tastes a bit odd (just my opinion) and I’m not sure if it’s the coconut as Its not one of my top flavours. However from looking at my brewing picture there is a lot of coconut in it so maybe another brew would alter the flavour if less was in it.

After my first try I’m not 100% sold on it. Just please remember a tea sipping experience is unique and just because this tea doesn’t tick all my boxes it may just tick yours!

Happy Sipping 🙂
