I thought I had to try this tea, just from the name and the description. My hopes were not too high after reading some of the reviews here.

On first smell of the dry tea, it definitely has a chery cola smell, but it is almost medicinal and definitely artificial. It did remind me of those sour cola gummy candies.

On brewing, the liqour smelled the same as the dry tea, but the taste was horrible. It had a faint cherry taste and very medicinal. Very flat tasting. Left an astringent after taste. Not much change with adding a litte, and then a lot of sweetener.

Not sure if I will finish my sample of this one. I may try it with the addition of some vanilla, but am not holding my breath.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
