From DAVIDsTEA

Sweet memories
Remember trying cherry cola as a kid? Nothing beats the feeling of holding that ice cold bottle and knowing it’s all yours to enjoy. Sweet, bubbly and tartly fruity, it’s everything we love in a drink. And with this invigorating, cherry-spiked black tea, we’re pretty sure we captured the taste straight from the soda fountain. Try a cup and see if we got the feeling right, too. We love it on ice with a little agave.

Ingredients: Organic: black tea, cherries, stevia.

I bought this tea about a month back because I thought it smelled good and because I used to love Cherry Cola but haven’t touched soda since I started dieting over 7 months ago. However, I failed to take into consideration that even when it comes to soda I am very picky with flavor and I definitely do not like it flat so I am not sure why I thought I would enjoy a drink with no carbonation that was made to taste like soda. Unfortunately, I bought 50 g of this because I was new to tea and didn’t know any better. Seeing as I could barely make it through one cup.

You could always try to swap it, perhaps someone else would like it :)

VariaTEA

I do have it posted on the swap board. I would be happy to send it to someone who might enjoy it but so far there seems to be no interest.

Roswell Strange

Take a look in my cupboard if you’d like – maybe we can work something out. I don’t think I’d want 50g of it, but I’d be interested in trying some. Anything from Della Terra, DAVIDsTEA, McQuarries, and Tea Desire I have in large quantity. Most everything else is just sample sizes, but it doesn’t hurt to ask if you’re interested in one of them.

This is the first tea I tried from the Traveling Tea Box (A)! It’s been on my shopping list since it became available a few months ago.

The smell from the bag was pretty off-putting, which was surprising. It was pretty stinky!

The initial taste was odd as well. Perhaps it was too hot when I first tried it, but it tasted like it smelled. After letting it cool for a bit, it started to taste like cola and cherry.

This isn’t as great as I thought it would be, but happy that I was able to try it without having to buy 50 grams of it. :)

Yeah this tea wasn’t a hit with me either. I just don’t like blends with stevia. But I wanted to put it in the box in hopes it could find a new home with someone who might like it.

Lord this is a bad tea. Honestly, I am not sure if anything can be done to help or salvage it, it is really just that bad. Artificial and poor tasting. I have to admit, I love coke in all its artificial glory. Maybe I just don’t like those artificial flavours transferring to tea? I will be offering this to everyone we know… Maybe my friend’s students will drink it? Because we sure won’t be doing so around here!

Dexter

I couldn’t wrap my head around this hot. I’m not saying it’s GOOD cold steeped, but it’s more palatable and cola is just meant to be cold. I would at least try it cold steeped, then pass it on. :))

mewakeling

Thanks for the advice. I am all for giving this a shot cold steeped. It was just such a strange tea hot. We’ll see if the flavours meld just a bit better chilled. I hate to give up on a tea, I tend to be pretty easy going and it is rare that I really dislike a blend this much!

I got this tea to make popsicles, and I’m afraid I’m not sold. The smell when brewing is heavy on the anise, and it’s interesting that I can pick that out of the “cola flavour”.

I brewed 1/2 cup double strength, added 1 tsp sugar and about 1/3 cup soy creamer. Chilled overnight, then poured into my Zoku popsicle maker today.

There’s something wrong with the flavour. I can see where it’s going, but blech.. It’s weirdly musty and spicy, and honestly I’d rather have an organic/natural full-sugar cola mixed with creamer and frozen. :/

This is the most revolting tea I’ve ever drank in my life :(

OMGsrsly

Yep, pretty much! The actual cola I just drank was 1000000000% better. Too bad I mixed it with rum and drank it all before I managed to make a popsicle. :)

Just ok. I wish I had bought the package of Pink Flamingo that I got to go from David’s Tea this morning. I’ve been craving a cherry tea and this one smelled pretty good. The taste does not match up to the smell though. There is a chemical taste to it. I will finish what I got of it, but I won’t buy it again.

canadianadia

I was so disappointed with this tea also :(

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Yeah. And I bought too much of it. I’m overexcited about David’s Tea. I will have to pace myself.

canadianadia

Oh no! that’s unfortunate, I only bought 20 grams of it back when I first tried it, and I felt like that was too much. :P ick!

Dry Leaf Nose: Cola and cherries on top of a rich black tea.

Liquor: Dark and clear with the sweet aroma of cherry cola.

Flavour: Tea takes a back seat, but is not overpowered by the cherry cola notes.

All I can say is “thank God I only bought 50 g of it”.

It was recommended to me after the guy working at the store overheard me telling my boyfriend that I loved the root beer float. He said if I liked that one I’ll like this one a lot more. Really? I can like something more than root beer float? Colour me intrigued.

The result: all lies. Blasphemous, ugly lies. I wouldn’t go as far as saying this tea is terrible, but it is CERTAINLY not good. An awful aftertaste (stevia?), and not a good taste, either. I couldn’t finish my cup.

I’m going to try adding it to my mate. Hopefully it takes some of the grossness away…

EDIT: Tried again yesterday afternoon. I thought maybe my taste buds were cranky in the morning because I was also hungry, and so weren’t giving me an accurate “reading” on the tea. Let’s just say they were being generous. I won’t lower my number rating, but it should probably be more like 10/100. Grossness. Anyone want about 42 g of Cherry Cola tea?!

Thanks Finn88! Well the first time I tried this it was waaaayyy strong. So I cut the brewing time and I’m hoping it’s a little better. Well it’s a little better, but it still has a weird aftertaste. I can get the cola and cherry flavor but the aftertaste is just breaking the deal for me :[ Maybe this will have to be tried as an ice tea or something. More experimenting is to be done! I’m determined to like this tea.

Wow, interesting. I knew this was better cold than hot. I’ve hot brewed and then tossed in the fridge before. Last night I put 3 tsp of this tea and 3 tsp of cherry tisane (Wild Cherry – Teaopia) and 4 cups of water in the fridge to steep. I left it there for about 18 hours, and what I got is something between cream soda and cherry Kool-Aid. I think I overdid the cherry it’s almost drowned out the “cola” but I still get the “chemical” taste that makes it seem like soda. I can drink this, it’s not GREAT, but getting close to good.
I changed my rating from 1 to 36. I still think this is really nasty on it’s own, but I’m going to keep tweeking the cold brewing and see if I can find the right ratio.

canadianadia

I could never get this one to taste good. Hope you have better luck than I did

I thought I had to give this one just one more try. I am glad I got just a small amount, still have a little bit left though.
I added in some vanilla and about a half teaspoon of rock sugar. It helped make the tea more drinkable but still not good. To me it has a chemical taste to it. With the addition of vanilla, the aftertaste is much more cola than the actual tea.
It was suggested to me to try this tea iced and mixed with carbonated water or soda water. Not sure if I will try that, but I will keep you posted.

canadianadia

I was so disappointed with this one also. The soda water addition sounds interesting. I should have tried that instead of feeding the remainders of my brew down the drain.
