Confession: I know that the little red things are pink peppercorns (which I do like) but I really, really want to picture them as tiny cherries. I just can’t unsee it.

This is one of the best-smelling teas I’ve ever had, both dry and brewed. It’s tart, delicious cherries down to the pits. Not the juicy sweet kind, but the little sour kind. Which I am more than okay with. Unfortunately, I am not super into the inclusion of rosemary. While the taste is also rather cherry, I just feel like the rosemary is dulling it down and drawing it away from that vibrant tart cherry I smell before I sip. It’s more than drinkable and it gets less grassy as it cools, but I just can’t help feeling wistful about what this tea would be like without rosemary.

Bio

I’m a tea omnivore if there ever was one. I’ll wax poetic about the finest sencha loose leaf but have no problem slurping up a few bags of Celestial Seasonings in between them. Everyone deserves quality from time to time, but every well-traveled road has a bit of dust (and fannings) along the way. :)
