mmmm… I received this one in a swap with Ysaurella I am really enjoying this one. I’m not sure if it’s the sample that i received but i’m not getting as much of the cherry notes as others. I really like the smoothness of this tea – the base blends really nicely with the flavours. i really like the spices in this tea. Now that I’ve been sitting with this tea for a bit, the cherry comes out at the end of the sip in the after taste. it lingers in my mouth, blending with the spices in sips that come after.

Thank you so much for this Ysaurella

Preparation

glad you loved it ! I personnaly never get the cherry notes anyway… and the sample is really new as I am obliged to buy a new bag of Pleine lune each month due to my too high consommation of this tea :S Pleine lune is really an almond and honey tea to me with vanilla and behind but very very far I get the fruits (citrus mainly). It may contain some cherry but I wasn’t able to detect it

I strongly suspect the cherry is a steepster myth. Just discussing it with dinosara, because I was surprised she mentioned cherry and google can only find references to pleine lune and cherry in english and in the couple years, since somebody on steepster said it had a cherry note (but did not mention the cloves or honey)

I really think there is no cherry at all. French site says “exotic” fruits, i.e. tropical fruits, but even so surely in the background.

Ysaurella

agree cteresa – however exotic fruits are not so obvious for me in pleine lune, I really wonder which exotic fruits they are supposed to use here…

I love this tea but no cherry was detected here.

As I recall, I really enjoyed this one as a delicious honey & Almond treat, but I don’t think I found cherry in it.

Ysaurella, exotic fruits from theri description in the french site only (and cherry surely never an exotic fruit for a french person right?). Though I the french description also mentions citrus, agrumes, which in retrospect might there be a hint there. They say rare spices (rare? what are rare spices? around clove which makes me feel vindicated, clove indeed.

I sent a msg on MF’s FB page know if there is cherry in…I am awaiting an answer…

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
