This tea is kind of overwhelmed by a soapy floral cherry and rose petal taste. It’s the first thing I smell and the first thing I taste. I’ve been eating a ton of cherries since yesterday, so the difference in flavor between the real cherries and soapy fragrance is even more apparent than it would have been.

I added a little raw alfalfa honey in after the first few sips and it helps tone down the cherryand brings out the base and papaya. Tastes like a black base although it is supposed to be a blend. Smooth and not bitter or astringent, so that is nice.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
