2064 Tasting Notes
This tea reminds me of several other blends that Della Terra sells, but the most recent one it reminds me of is Candy Cane, which I just finished up a few weeks ago. I think this has more vanilla in it, which is likely why I didn’t enjoy it as much. I could also do without the sprinkles, they don’t reall add anything to the blend, just a splash of color to the dry leaf. Probably not a reorder for me, but still enjoyable.
I love cherry teas, they’ve always been among my favorites, but this one was a huge disappointment and is going in my swap box. The scent of the dry leaf is very offputting and once brewed it doesn’t get much better. There is a flavor that keeps throwing me off, I’m not sure if I want to describe it as medicinal, because sometimes it seems almost alcoholic. Either way, it isn’t a very pleasant flavor to find in a tea. The most disappointing aspect, however, is the low quality chocolate added to the blend. Overall I haven’t been a fan of Della Terra’s chocolate teas and this one just leaves me with a similar feeling as the others I have tried.
