From 52teas

My grandparents were part of that “Greatest Generation” of Americans. My grandfather served in the Navy in the South Pacific during World War II. After the war, he became an auto mechanic and opened his own garage. My grandmother was a registered nurse. In my recollection of her, I always thought she came from something of a well-to-do family, or she had aspirations to be a well-to-do family. (I can’t help but think about Hyacinth Bucket in the BBC comedy Keeping Up Appearances; my grandmother wasn’t that bad, but there was an element of Hyacinth in her).

Anyway, whenever the family got together at grandma’s house, she had these extravagant meals planned that frequently started with fruit cocktail. I can’t say why this fact has stuck in my memory more than others, but I remember the Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve dinners with fruit cocktails all around to start. I remember thinking it was like getting dessert before dinner.

So, in memory of my grandparents, here’s our delicious Chinese sencha blended with real peach, pear, pineapple and natural peach, pear, pineapple and maraschino cherry flavors. It’s so delicious, you could serve it as a first course.

Interesting. Not interesting bad. Just interesting.

I’m not sure if I would have bought this if I had tasted it on its own. That being said, I’m not sad I received it! The cherry flavour is bam!, smack you in the face cherry. Cherry without sweetness is an interesting experience. Like a Halls cough drop without the methol. The tartness was nice, but I really want to reel the intensity back a bit. I’m going to think about what I could blend this with to make the cherry a little more subtle (chocolate, perhaps?). I almost killed a colleague with this, though, so share carefully, with fair warning!
