drank Cherry Potion by DAVIDsTEA
150 tasting notes

This tea makes me sad. The aroma of Cherry Potion is intoxicating! I want to put Cherry Potion in a small sachet to be worn around my wrist, and sniff it when I feel that I may swoon from the pressures of the day. I’ll need a fainting couch and a bustle in order to make this look work.

BUT once Cherry Potion is brewed, something goes very wrong. I don’t mind hibiscus in teas most of the time, but hibiscus is a big, bitter, bully in this tea. I can’t taste enough of the beautiful cherries in this blend because hibiscus has beaten the life out of them. The more I drink of this tea the more frustrated I become with it because I can see its potential for cherry(fide) greatness.

You’re a jerk hibiscus. BOOOO!!!!

Edit: My lips looked like this http://www.caufields.com/productimages/Valentine/Images/77885.jpg after I drank Cherry Potion! Not really, but what an oddly specific feature/ selling point.

Hibiscus IS a big bitter bully in this tea!
You’ve found a perfect way to describe it! :(

DaisyChubb, the sadest part is that you gave me fair warning. Sometimes I just think it will be different for me… and then it’s not :/

ashika, do you think should I see a doctor? Hehehe…

Jenn

Edit: the saddest part… Grrrrr

SimplyJenW

Hibiscus and I are also no longer friends…. It is much better on the second steep, though. Hibiscus is a bully for the first steep, and usually not to be found for the second.

Cherry tea can go really, really wrong. Too many end up tasting like cough syrup.

Jenn

SimplyJenW, I may have to break up with hibiscus too. Such a bitter coward/ bully!

gmathis, true that! Luckily Cherry Potion didn’t taste like cough syrup, but it was a hot hibiscus mess.

lol Jenn- honey,- it better to have tried than never have taken the chance- i’m glad you went out to find the verdict for yourself KUDOS : )

Too true! I pretty much said the same thing in my tasting just now. This tea has amazing potential if it weren’t for the stoopid hibiscus.

Bio

I’m an animal loving vegan foodie, and a card carrying tea fanatic! Didn’t you get your card?

I typically drink my black tea with a splash of almond or coconut cream and a dash of turbinado sugar or stevia. My green teas I typically drink straight, and the same goes for most of my other teas with an occasional exception. I live on the edge!

Please check out my website Cookin’ Vegan at www.cookinvegan.com if you’re hungry.

I’m also a bit of a knitwit. I have an Etsy shop where I sell pretty little knitted and knitting accessories called Baubles 4 Knitwits at www.Baubles4Knitwits.etsy.com.
