A sample from KittyLovesTea. I actually wasn’t sure whether this was black or green tea at first — I initially thought black, but the leaves do have a greenish tinge to them that had me fooled for a few minutes. Upon brewing, I can see that it’s definitely a black. The dry mix has slivers of almond and large whole cherries among the tea leaves. At least, I assumed they were cherries. Now I’m thinking they might have been cranberries. This tea has me completely foxed.
Unfortunately, so does the tasting. I’m not getting cherry or almond, or, in fact, anything much from this tea at all. Pleasant black tea, yes. Fruit or nuts? Not really. Maybe very, very vaguely in the background, but that could be wishful thinking on my part.
Hmm. I wanted to like this one, as cherry is a favourite flavour of mine. I’m not getting anything from this at the moment, though, so I’m a tad disappointed. Back to the drawing board with this one!
