Oh, I guess I’m the first person to log this blend – huzzah! Thanks for the fast shipping Frank. :D

I was a little leery of this because cherry flavored things so often taste like cough medicine to me, but I do like gunpowder teas quite a lot.

I steeped this for around 3 minutes at 180F. The almond here goes great with the vegetal and slightly assertive nature of the gunpowder tea. The cherry is mild and reminds me more of sour cherries than sweet ones. No cough syrup here thankfully!

I’m not sure this blend is for everyone, you would have to like gunpowder tea quite a lot since it overpowers the other flavors just a little bit. Not my absolute favorite from 52 Teas, but still very creative and tasty. How about a banana almond gunpowder?? :)
