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.

Drive safely! Are you far enough north that your city has at least a little bit of snow removal equipment? I have a friend headed that direction this weekend in a U-Haul. Ick!

We have sand trucks and that’s pretty much it. I’m thinking I’ll be going in for an hour or two tomorrow instead because yeah, turns out we have 10 inches on the ground. It’s gonna take a bit before it melts enough where I feel safe driving!

Yikes! 10 inches with only sand trucks is ridiculous. It snows for much too long in MN and even with plows and people that drive in it everyday, there’s still a ton of cars in the ditch. Be careful! As a side note, it’s nice to know that there’s cherry tea without the dreaded taste of cough syrup. I’ll have to keep this one in mind!

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
