drank Cherry Cola (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I rarely have a problem with tea. Black, green, white, red, herbal, it takes a lot for a tea to disappoint me. I can count on one hand the teas in the past that I have brewed then dumped, Forbidden Fruit, Jumpy Monkey, and The Skinny amoung them. Sadly I now have to add this one to the list and I’m probably just reiterating what the other reviews have already said…

This tasted really, really strange to me. Initially it tasted like the tea was musty or fermented, and AFTERTASTE started to taste like Cherry Cola, but first you’ve got to get past the strange flavours. I tried it both hot (blech), iced (Cherry Cola flavour came through a little more) and iced with sweetened condensed milk (addiction much?). The only tolerable way to drink this was the latter… and even then I really had to force myself.

Sigh. Now I’m sad because I was ever so hopeful that this tea would be amazing…

Have not heard good things about this tea. Apprehensive to try it myself!

I’d suggest just skipping it, there are much better teas out there that are worth the money.

Yuck, had it to-go today and it was funky tasting :B (It was against my will!)

Eisenherz

I rarely dislike any tea, but I’m with you on that one! It has this strange unpleasant taste, and it’s so overpowering.

Daisychubb: “Funky” is putting it lightly.
Eisenherz: Unpleasantly overpowering!

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
