drank Cherry Potion by DAVIDsTEA
75 tasting notes

Got enough to make a pot of this tea during a tea exchange. Didn’t really know anything about it prior, so didn’t have any expectations. I’m actually surprised that a cherry tea never figured on my most wanted list.

First off – the dry leaf and the liqur bost remind me of “Elf Help” scented play-doh. Emphasis on the play-doh. Errr….

Took a sip, and… I’m kinda confused. I don’t taste cherries. Or white tea. I taste something strong and unenjoyable and tart and – AHa! Hibiscus! That ’s why this was not on my most wanted list!

Blech. Hibiscus. And, oddly enough, play-doh. Not even worth finishing the pot.

Preparation

When steeped for 30sec @ 80°C it tastes much more enjoyable, I’m sorry you had such a bad experience with this tea…

In all honesty, any tea with hibiscus, no matter how I prepare it, ends up on my bad side (with the exception to the rule being Mother’s Little Helper). It’s just one of those things that make me want to sucker punch someone.
