Another tea from Adham. This is the tea that I hit my nose first when I opened the package of teas. Wow, is the cherry fragrant in this one! The almond is a great combination with this, but doesn’t make it taste amaretto, like I thought it might. The leaves look like a mixture of brown skinny leaves (ceylon?) and then there are greener large wide leaves that must be the china part of the blend? Once I saw the wet leaves I thought maybe I had steeped this wrong, and thought it might be a black/green blend…still not really sure, but it tastes just wonderful brewed as a black tea. I love how fruity and floral this blend is. I wish I had some black cherry preserves and a scone to enjoy with this. Or maybe a bear claw from work to bring out the almond flavor…delicious! I really am enjoying this tea.
Tried this with remand sugar and wow was this fantastic. I love how the fruit flavors came out with the additions. Yum. This finished up the sample from secret Santa Adham. I am going to miss this one.
