Increasing the rating quite a bit as this is a quite pleasant iced tea. Using the wet leaves to cold brew the tea created a much pleasant flavor from the tea base, and made the bittersweet cherries much more pleasant on the tongue. The spoonful of sugar I added didn’t seem to hurt either! Glad I tried a steeping of this ice. Not sad to say the sample Ricky sent me is gone. I think I’d still like to try the green version of this tea.
