okay, so i’m friends with the staff at one of the teavanas in my area. one of my friends actually suggested this one to me and was surprised that i didn’t like the smell. the dry leaf smells VERY much like a cheap red sucker. i thought i’d give it a shot since my friend then told me it’s nowhere near that sweet tasting. to my surprise, i really like it. i don’t find it nearly as cloying or artificial tasting as others do. i only put the tiniest amount of sugar, maybe half a teaspoon, and it’s perfect. delicate but still cherry flavoured.
not sure what the difference is between what i did and what others did, but i liked it.
