Got this tea for Christmas along with the Merlot and Green Tea one.

I was quite surprised by this tea – it’s very complex. I have to say the smell kinda put me off as it has alot of cherry to it. The flavor still has the cherry but it’s more of a smooth taste. I didn’t get any cinnamon coming out for this steep so maybe this cup just had more cherry in it. I really like cinnamon so hope next time will reveal it.

I can’t wait to try it again and resteep (didn’t think to save my leaves the first time). I’m not quite sure if it’ll make my repurchase list but it was definitely worth getting.

I’d definitely recommend this if you like darker complex teas that are smooth.

Thank you as I’m dying to try this type of tea. I like your saying about the cherry undertones. I’ll check with my supplier and see if he has it. I’m much obliged. Lee

Oh, pardon me, I thought this was a tea instead of a wine which is even more the better. I am sipping some eau de vie framboise at the moment. Are you familiar with it? Lee’

That Lee! I was trying to find this post earlier today and couldn’t! Oh yes, this is tea. They have a series of 6 (I think) teas that are all based around a type of wine.
If you want, I can swap you some as I have plenty left.

Good it’s tea then. Thanks but I’ve nothing to swap except the exotic teas I got from my friend at the Tea Embassy in Austin, TX. If you’d like to know the names of them, which I don’t, let me know and if it’s acceptable to you, we’ll see what we can work out. I have 54 pks. RSVP. Lee

Menghai 2009 Red Aura Pu-erh has a very smooth Cabernet type flavor naturally. Almost something between that and a Paso Robles Zinfandel which is more bright, ripe and jammy to me.
It’s quite inexpensive and delicious. 100 gr is around $8.
