I’m happy to be home, 4 nights away is just too long for me. I missed my kitty babies :( I’ve also come to realise that tea tastes better when I’m at home.
This raw blend smells interesting…I can smell cherry and cola but it’s chemical and thick, I can also smell what I believe to be citrus like strong lemon. It’s just strange, not awful and not great.
Once steeped the tea smells like a sweet, cinnamon, lemon, cola, cherry, darkly stodgy. Again just rather odd.
Flavour is like cheap cola but there is also some cake present, like baked sweet crumbs/bread that have been soaked in cherry cola. It tastes as bizarre as it smells. Has some sweetness and is rather thick in flavour. The black tea is malty which adds to the cake element. The lemon is strong, sour and tangy.
Honestly I didn’t know what cherry cola and cake would taste like anyway but the idea just sounded amazing. Well It doesn’t taste like I imagined but at the same time it does taste like it’s name. Maybe more lemonade and cake than cherry cola and cake.
I don’t think this tea is for me. It’s drinkable but not something I would crave or want to drink again. Oh well, they can’t all be winners.
