I’m a cherry fanatic so this tea was a must-have when Frank came up with it. Most of the cherry flavoured teas I’ve tried from other companies have been disapointing, either too artifical-tasting or flavourless. But I keep trying in hopes I’ll stumble across a good one.

I had to restrain myself from eating those dried cherries that were mixed in – when I lived at home I would always steal and eat the dried cherries my mom used for baking (much to her ire). ;) And low-and-behold, this tea actually tastes like cherry and real cherries too! The vanilla is detectable too, thought subtly, but I can only pick up the brandy in the scent of the dry tea.

I do wish the cherry flavour was a bit stronger, but that might just be an indication that it needs a longer steep time, so I’ll do that before I give this blend an actual rating. At this point I’m liking – but not quite loving – this tea.

How long ago did this come out? Is it maybe just not fresh anymore? Wow I have not heard of this one – how did that slip past me? I LOVE cherries!

Yeah, I was thinking that this one seemed awfully familiar, but I think it actually came out before either of us was on Steepster…

This one’s not that old A&K – I just finished off my pouch of it and it was as good as the day I received it.

I also found the cherry flavour a bit subtle – try a slightly longer steep time though, eventually it becomes almost syrupy with goodness!

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
