Tastes a little like chocolate covered cherries. Very good, better as a stand alone.

I received this is a “Mystery Swap” with Allie. Thank you for sharing!

So since I don’t know the history of this tea, when it was bought, how it was stored, I am going to chock my review and my tastings up to packaging. The first sip to me tasted like this tea picked up the flavor of the inside of a plastic bag it was shipped in. I get no hints of almond or even a black tea taste. I liked the name of this tea and, based on the name I was hoping for an “almond joy” tea.

Hmm… I think it is the bag. It was purchased in November and stored in the air sealed bag it was purchased in. It should taste similar to an almond cookie. :-/

Oh man:( I think it must be the bag. I will have to give it one more shot just in case it was my morning taste buds working against me.

drank Ice Cherry Black by TranquiliTea
64 tasting notes

This tea is absolutely fabulous! It is a black/green blend and the scent is cherry, but not like cherry syrup. I made this iced and it was really refreshing! I could not detect a black base to the tea though. The flavor was almost that of a good cherry juice! I felt like I shouldn’t have been drinking it, because of the sweetness, but it’s not loaded with sugar. At least this will take care of my cravings for Traverse City cherries until I have the opportunity to go up north this summer! :-)

This is a wonderful tea! I have a fondness for almost anything black currant and this tea does not disappoint! I wish they sold this in a caffeinated version, but the taste is still amazing. I added sweetener and cream. The currant flavor is not too astringent nor is it fake. I will by buying more of this one shortly.

This tea is very good! The smell of the dry tea is delicious. It smells good enough eat! I brewed for 5 minutes and added sweetener and cream. This tea is very good! It’s bold, but doesn’t overpower the hazelnut flavor. There are mini-chocolate chips in the mix, but the chocolate notes are not very detectable when brewed. I think this tea is worthy of becoming a latte :-)
