Do you get enough of flavor from the amount of raspberries you used

ok I'm a mead rookie, but I'm intrigued by this recipe...

I'm assuming there's some boiling involved? Papazain's mead recipes say to boil ~15 minutes...

I'd like to try this though; sounds yummy!

nope..NO boiling involved. I personally do NOT believe in boiling anything that goes into a Mead recipe.

Digging up an old post but that's the beauty of search! I made this today and am using my old Mr. Beer for the primary covered with cheesecloth and will move it into a gallon jug in 7-10 days. I took a SG and got 1.124 which seemed high but I'm used to beer stuff more then wine stuff. Is that going to be over the top high or am I in the right ball park? I cut the honey down to 3.5 pounds with 12 oz frozen (thawed) raspberries. I assumed the tea called for was brewed and not just loose leaf but I can't see it being a huge problem either way; if it's leaf, I guess I have time still to chuck it in there but I'm inclined to let it roll for now.

I made some thing similar in the summer, 5l jar, 2.3kg of cheap honey, 1.3kg frozen raspberries. Boiled with nutrients. I know not to boil now but tis was my second mead. Og was off the scale so dunno but fg was 1.032 which was higher than I wanted but this mead is young and tasting amazing. I bottled it young to get the Demi John, here is a pix of the dregs from bottling. Tastes amazing. Sweet and raspberry and red
