423 Tasting Notes
Used to hate cherries. Didn’t even like cherry candy anything. But as with most adults my tastes have changed and some how I ended up finding myself liking them. Well…. kinda. I prefer the sour ones. Like in this tea.
The dry smell is great. Would make a great potpourri. But is better as a tea. I didn’t pick up much from the brewed smell. The taste isn’t quite what I thought it was going to be but I’m still enjoying it. Fruity yes but the sour cherry isn’t as present as I thought it would be. Good hot but I like it better lukewarm.
The smell is better then the taste, but the taste is good. I’ve never been to Paris but if there were a tea to go along with every city name this one would be a good fit. Perhaps I steeped it too long. I am tasting some bitterness and more black tea then I am the other flavors. I will retry this again and be more careful about my steep time.
Some herbals pack a punch and some just gently land kisses on your forehead. This one is a forehead kisser. IT’s nice and light but still has enough flavor to make you feel like your not drinking flavored water. I was hoping for more raspberry flavor. Perhaps I shall go stick the remaining raspberries we have in our fridge into the tea. In fact I think I shall.
My husband would enjoy this if he could drink it. Alas, it has dairy so he can’t. The orange flavor is very subtle compared with the chocolate. Which is probably good because using real orange slices to flavor things (when they are dried) can be tough. Most of the time they end up bitter.
