From Tokyo to Paris in 24 hours…
The dry leaves smell, scarily, like cherry cough syrup!! Oh no! Very scary.
Once brewed that “screeching” cough syrup scent fades and turns into a super sweet strawberry jam.
First sip…is like a strawberry creamsicle. Or a strawberry & cream flavored Creme Savers candy. It’s a fruity hard candy taste with an almost creamy aftertaste.
Subsequent sips…there’s something distinctly citrusy in here—like a strawberry-flavored Earl Grey. Yep, I can sense the bergamot!
In the background, the black tea tastes smooth and a bit biscuit-y.
I think this is a fairly good cup. It didn’t “wow” me like I hoped it would. The flavors are pretty mild. But I can’t get over that initial cherry cough syrup impression. I hate cherry cough syrup with a passion! gag I think it colored my overall tasting for the worse. So this was an “average” experience, for me.
