I’ve now tried this one twice with no additives and I’m not loving it. It smells wonderful and the black cherry comes through strongly, but it’s weirdly bland otherwise. I do want to try it with some almond milk and sweetener and see how that goes.

“This tea’s luscious flavor is reminiscent of the red fruit punch we drank as children – of course, our version is 100% natural. A burst of American cherries is made even livelier by the sweetness of Oriental blackberry leaves. Delicious hot or iced, this blend takes you back to orchards of ripe, juicy cherries waiting to be made into succulent pies.”

Dry tea bag smells… well doesn’t smell like much to me! LOL… Maybe a little bit of a dried fruit smell..but it could be a mental thing since I know it’s a black cherry tea…
In the cup it smells very much like the dried strawberries/berry mix from Trader Joes. Fruity but not sweet.
Tastes a little tart to me. Pretty strong flavor at the recommended 5-6 minute steep time. Maybe I’ll drink it iced next time.
Purchased as part of a sampler pack. Brewed for 10 minutes, as I like my herbal teas strong. This tea is indeed very cherry, but I can taste the chicory. Can’t decide if it’s a good thing yet or not. I’m not a big fan of sweet cherries, and this is definitely sweet.
