I received this blend in a swap with TheTeaFairy
Let me explain first what a swap with TheTeaFairy means ! I received sooooo many teas, that’s incredible, all in small bags with different coloured stickers, using a colour code for the kind of tea and wearing a diamond or pearl sticker to mention the prefered blends !
Waouh I am so impressed, really.Thank you so much !

So I decided to visit first the orange flower serie, the black flavoured teas and this one first.

It’s not bad but not exceptional neither.
I was expecting cherries I mostly get a chocolate tea.It smells, it tastes chocolate, I am not really able to get cherry.I get something fruity but not cherry.
I think the flavours used here may not be 100% natural, but I may be wrong.
I am happy to have been given the opportunity to taste it, thank you again TheTeaFairy

So happy you liked the package :-)
You are right about this tea, I really liked it though the first time I drank it, but in retrospect, I think I was more in love with the idea of a Griottes tea than the tea itself! I hardly ever drink it now, as I find a chemical taste has emerged more strongly over time.

if you like cherries, you should try the Cerise Noire from Betjeman & Barton it’s from far the best natural cherry tea I ever had, and on a black tea base.
Otherwise, on a green tea base, Sakura 2000 from Mariage Frères is delicious.

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
