[Backlog] – I can’t believe that I almost bought a lot of this tea. I saw it and was thinking about it.. but settled on a smaller size instead. All I can say is that I’m happy I didn’t buy more. The dry leaf and the brewed tea itself smelled exactly like cherry cough syrup. The cherry medicine flavor smothered the chocolate notes and eventually, I couldn’t even take one more sip. I’m sure that the black tea base is tasty, but my nose and tongue couldn’t get beyond that cloying, sickly, medicinal cherry.
