Received this tea from a swap with silvermage2000. This was one of four cherry teas in the swap, and the one I was most curious to try. I’d love to say I was curious to try it because of the flavors, but it was more to do with the French wording in the description.

These leaves smell and tea tastes of a higher quality, akin to those of Dammann Freres and Mariage Freres. The black tea base is quite tasty. I like the cherry flavoring mixed with floral notes. Very enjoyable cup. I think I may need to steep it longer next time at a lower temp to see if more of the almond comes out in the taste.

Preparation

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
