I’m a little wary of the itty bitty black tea leaves that are in this blend. It’s just not what I look for in a tea. Perhaps I should have read the description before requesting this tea from Alphakitty? Who knows. I have enough for 1-2 more cups after this, though I usually make pots of 3 cups at a time, as I did this time.
I added a ton of sugar to this after reading all the reviews on the astringency of this blend. I hate astringency. It seems to have worked partially, although now the flavouring is POPPING and so much so that it all tastes pretty artificial now. There’s a bitter tinge to it that not even the sweetener could eradicate. I’ve let it cool down some now and the cherry flavour is really really there, but at the same time, I do not like this one. Oh well, can’t love them all.
