Mmmmm this is much better than I recall! I avoided this tea for months thinking it was terrible, and tastelesss… until today when I finally decided to give it a second chance— So glad that I did :)
I’m quite pleased that the flavour hasn’t been leeched out here(flavour that IS there, I have no idea what got that idea in my head), as I bought this one well over 18 months ago. Perhaps my palate has evolved after all.
The cherry is very mild, overtaken somewhat by the almond. Also, it doesn’t do to understeep, I have discovered— part of what I was doing incorrectly when I first purchased it.

Oh and errrr, unfortunately we had no milk left in the house, and so I was left to use my almond milk… but the milk was sweetened so now all I taste is the almond, and none of the cherry. Oh well, something to look forward to. Jessie, it looks like you and I had similar dilemmas today! :)
That said, this rating may increase. Fingers crossed.

Indeed! I’ve kept trying to make tea lattes with almond milk and even though I use the unsweetened stuff the almond definitely takes over.

I sampled this one at the store in Kelowna but I didn’t like the aftertaste it had.

a latte… mmmm. Almond doesn’t foam up like cows milk does. Sounds yummy.

I know what you mean about the aftertaste Jillian. I feel the same about their Monks blend

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
