A tea I got in a trade with Ricky (who’s still trying to mooch more tea off of me ;P).
This is a lovely smelling tea from the get-go. At my aunt’s old house there was a sour-cherry tree and in the summer my mother and I would go and pick huge ice cream buckets full of them. We’d freeze them and make them into the most delicious sauces. Well this tea smells like those cherries tasted, which may sound a bit odd, but taste and sense of smell are supposed to be closely linked.
There are little, red, round things in the tea that look like red peppercorns but they smell like cherries. There’s also some light green needle-like things that look like rosemary possibly.
The taste is quite authentic too; not much like the traditional Bing Cherry flavour, so if you’re looking for that then this might not be the tea for you. All the flavour seems to hit me right at the start of each sip: fruity, fresh, and even slightly acrid it’s a very clean, but yummy taste. It seems to quickly tapper off into a rather sour sort of tea flavour, which is a bit disapointing; but other than that, this is rockin’ tea.
