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.

LOL, love it! Still trying? What is this nonsense, I flew over yesterday and emptied your cupboard while you were asleep. It’s like the Grinch who stole Christmas, but in this case it’s err…. Ricky who steals your tea before Valentines day? o.O

Jillian

Wow, that was quick, were you rocket-powered? :P

Ricky

Haha, I suppose you could say that ;), fueled by tea =]

If I ever make another lupicia order, I’ll let you know then I’ll send some stuff your way, mooch.

Jillian

Pot calling the kettle black, much? (BTW that sounds awesome) XD

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!)
