Very much a fresh cherry smell, even has that hint of tartness to it that fresh cherries do. Usually cherry flavored things make me think of cough syrup so it’s nice to find a cherry flavored something that doesn’t even hint of that type of cherry.
The taste isn’t as tart as the smell, but it’s got a little tingle to it. Very fresh and fruity tasting. Not overpowering or fake though it is probably one of the stronger flavored Lupicia teas I’ve had. I’m not using any sugar or milk but honestly, it doesn’t need any and sugar might detract from the fresh sourness it has – again, not overly sour, just a little twinge that makes me think of fresh cherries. A very good tea from spring, I would think.
Also, we have about eight inches of snow on the ground. It’s sorta nuts. And I’m expected into work this afternoon. Not sure if that’s going to happen. Yikes.
