This was another flavor enjoyed on the 4th of July. Be careful with this blend, over brewing can make the ceylon super intense or the cherry too medicine-like. Keeping an eye on the time makes sure this blend is tasty, a nice balance of marzipan-cookie, rich floral of ceylon black, and deep cherry. It’s a decadent tea when hot and a great iced tea with depth. The cherry tastes true to the fruit and not artificial, such a relief since Washington cannot tell a lie. Along with this tea I recommend HBO’s John Adams miniseries. Everyone is so well cast in it, and Washington is the bold but reassuring leader of legend.
