I am going to GUESS this is a Ceylon base but I have to confess I do not consider myself very versed in identifying black teas yet.
Its a nice cherry flavored tea.
I have not had too many cherry black teas yet although I have been trying to find a really great one.
I would say this is very good, maybe not GREAT but I have nothing to really compare it to. Thus far however I am quite pleased with this in my cabinet!
Its a nice blend that is not too sweet but just sweet enough.
No astringency, not bitter, nor tart.
I did add an agave stick because I got them in today from David’s in my first ever David’s order and had to give one a try. This seemed to be a good tea to try them out with.
I do like the added sweetener to this tea but it was nice on its own as well.
There may be a slight “artificial” flavor in this tea but I am not sure if that is the tea itself or if it is the agave that I am just not used to yet.
Regardless a nice tea.

EDIT:
I made a mistake and logged this under Compass Teas but this was from Caraway! I have since changed it in the database.

Too bad you have 4 oz of it, eh? That’s the one problem with ordering so much tea at once. I know it’s a good price, but if I don’t like a tea, I feel so bad having so much on hand (this was also before swaps were commonplace, though..)

Oh but I like it. I mean its not DA BOMB lol but its nice. Its the best cherry tea thus far as for black teas. I am going to try it out cold brewed too and since that takes twice the leaf I don’t feel I have too much.
However you are right – with swaps and such its not like we have to sit on something when we don’t like it.

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.
