75
drank Cherry Potion by DAVIDsTEA
807 tasting notes

Stephanie B sent me a sample of this tea. Thank you Stephanie!
After looking over all the other tea logs, temp and steep times I decided (actually my hubby did) to steep for 3 minutes at 180
Because it seems steeping temps and times were all over the place as were the reviews we did a little calculating and came up with this average.
This smells amazing both dry and steeped.
It has a very familiar slightly sour cherry smell that I can’t place but I know I have smelled this somewhere before!
From my childhood perhaps – a cherry medicine, a candy, not sure.
There is also this interesting aroma of baby power essence in the background if you just let your senses go past the initial cherry aroma.
There is a definitive floral flavor as well.
I find that the ingredients compliment each other quite well actually.
Neither seems to over power the other.
The cherry is present although slightly sour but not bitter.
Refreshing with no lingering after taste or astringency.
Immediate after taste is a bit of tartness but only slight, with a light lilting floral note dancing on the mid section of the tongue.
This is a unique and enjoyable cup.
Thank you Stephanie B!
I would purchase this in the future.

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
