Cool beans, I found a solution to bring out the chocolate and cherry in this: light soy milk. I almost never add milk but is this ever scrumptious! It’s still not quite as chocolate cherry-y as I’d hoped, however, it now tastes closer to the scent of the dry leaf.
The chocolate and cherry shy away a little too much with the second steeping + light soy milk. I’m definitely upping my rating. Try this if you like cherry cordials!
