The cherry taste is there in this tea but I think I had too much hibiscus in my scoop, as this cup tastes too sour even with sugar. I can smell cherry, and a sweet berry scent, part of the smell references cream soda and cherry popsicles, but the taste is hidden by the sour aspects of this tea (ie hibiscus, rosehips, red currants). The sweet fruit accents become more apparent in the tea as it cools as a slightly candyish cherry taste ( similar to the notes found in cherry scented green tea), leaving a bright fruit note. However this taste is still buried underneath the sour notes. I will try this tea again after removing some of the hibiscus and try it cold brewed to try to bring out the cherry notes and reduce the sour notes. It is supposed to be a sour cherry tea but as it is this brewing was so sour that this over shadowed all of the other flavours.

It’s all go this morning with the arrival of an engineer that’s going to fit our new boiler. Involves knocking a hole in the wall to fit an extractor fan, not keen on the idea of the whole but nothing I can do about that.

This tea was from my mum for Christmas, another Polish shop find I believe. Sour cherry sounds nice, I don’t do fruit tea often but I do love cherries.

The raw bags smell like natural cherry with a slight herbalness. Sweet yet sour at the same time. Rather nice actually.

Once steeped it’s dark red and has a herbal scent, stronger than it’s raw form, and the cherry is replaced with a sour flowers.

There is no way to delicately dance about with flavour notes….this tastes like hibiscus, pure hibiscus. The wonderful cherry scent has been completely lost in taste and replaced with a sour, tart and dry hibiscus. Even the husband said “This tea’s not great” and he usually doesn’t mind what he drinks. You could argue that it leaves a light cherry after taste but it’s so dry that it’s too hard to tell for certain.

Such a shame, had high hopes for this considering the raw bag smelled so nice. Oh well.

It’s always such a shame when the drink doesn’t match up with a really delicious smell :(
