This blend has a sweet yet sour scent that is fruity and dry. Maybe not cherry and almonds (at least yet).
The first few sips reveal a medium strength black tea with notes of sour fruit, sweet nuts and a dryness in the after taste. I’m still not convinced that it’s cherry and the almond though sweet is still subtle considering it’s name sake.
It’s an alright tea but more sweet and sour cranberry than cherry and almond.
This turned out thick and malty and… thick. Hmm. Not digging it this time around.
This tea is quite delicious. I’ve been pining over the loss of 52Teas Raspberry Cream and this tea is just what this reminds me of, with a hint of strawberry rather than raspberry. There’s is no fakeness of overwhelming flavour – just a lovely black base with a subtle fruit taste in the background that makes for a great cup of tea. I’m just checking out Mystic Brew’s eBay store now to see if this is available.
Update: Just ordered more :) Not much makes me happier than when I can get shipping to Canada. Yay!
This only arrived today but it smells so delicious and I must have a taste. It’s very citrusy and strong and fresh. I can smell the orange and lime vividly. Lovely! Again it looks as shown in the picture.
Once steeped this tea is dark brown in colour and has the same strong, sweet and waxy citrus aroma. Flavour is strong but refreshing and the balance of waxy and sweet citrus fruit is perfect. Lemon, lime, orange…a mixture of everything is present. The strength is strong but still very nice without the aid of milk or sugar so it has some smoothness and without any bitterness.
It reminds me a little of Lemon and Lime Black Tea – Ahmad Tea but with more flavour and depth. Looks like I have found a winner, another new tea company to remember. :)
Another find on eBay and yet another small company to try out. This was advertised as a valentines tea but it looked nice and I thought “What the hell” and bought it anyway. We all need love on more than one day a year.
It arrived this morning and will be the first tea I shall try. The tea is as shown in the picture and has a very sweet scent…strawberry? It’s nice but synthetic smelling. It has the little sweets in so I wouldn’t expect anything less for this blend.
Once steeped this tea is dark brown in colour with a sweet and strong mixture of fruit and earthiness. Not as sweet as it’s raw scent but still pleasant.
Flavour is thick and the black tea is rather strong but avoids becoming bitter or harsh. Still slightly sweet with fruity and floral tones. I still think it’s strawberry. It’s very delicate though and my husband is having a hard time finding any real flavours other than sweet black tea.
Overall I think it’s nice, worth the cheap price and a nice novelty…plus it’s something I could drink every day with ease.
Unrelated Side Note – I made some lip balms this morning using Boysenberry Matcha and natural vegan ingredients as gifts to send. So if anyone does any large tea trades with me then be aware that you may find one amongst your teas. Working on more scents too :)
Will review when I have again, but from memory this was a very interesting cuppa. It had an “interesting” taste. By that I mean you took a sip, it’s pleasant, it makes you go “hmm..” and take another sip and before you know it you’re refilling the kettle.
