EDIT: I bumped my rating up a smidgen after experimenting with this tea. The second brew tastes much better than the first. Cold tastes better than hot. Adding a half teaspoon of brown sugar also brings out the cherry cola taste (which really shouldn’t be a surprise considering how much sugar there is in soda, but I prefer to have my tea without adding sugar).
ORIGINAL NOTE: I must say that although I am a lover of David’s tea. This Organic Cherry Cola tea is quite disappointing for me. I loved cherry cola, whenever I was allowed to have it as a child, so I was excited to possibly find an alternative that I can enjoy that isn’t packed with sugar and carbonation. When I took my first sip, I thought I did something wrong, but looking at the other reviews, I’m not alone with getting a muddied fermented flavor. I occasionally get hints of the cherry cola flavor, but it is overpowered by what I might best describe as an earthy(?) taste…No wait, not earthy…more like a musty/dirt-ish taste? (Not sure if that description will help anyone but me – yeh…should just stick with the adjective “fermented” I suppose). I have to say that I tend to prefer green and white teas over black teas, so my palette was already biased against this tea even before the first sip. It’s not horrible, but I’m glad I only bought 14g. With all the other amazing options at David’s I wouldn’t recommend this one.

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
