I was given this tea as part of a gift set from Second Cup. The package claims it’s an estate tea, whole-leaf, and packaged in pyramid tea bags. Well, they got the pyramid tea bags right, at least.

The black tea tastes like your average bagged black, and rather than being whole leaf, it looks like someone took whole leaves and crunched them up awfully vigorously. I had a hard time tasting anything other than the black tea base and the cough syrup cherry flavour, although there’s supposed to be orange flavour and some spices. It really wasn’t what I expected from a holiday blend, although maybe cherry lollipops are some people’s idea of the holidays.

If the packaging hadn’t made this tea sound like it was going to be something special, I likely would have rated it higher. Not impressed. :P

Another tea that I forget how much I enjoy until I have a cup. Still nursing a box I picked up last Christmas, but I’m interested in trying the new blend they’ve brought out since they redid their teas.

One of my favourites ever! I’m not usually a fan of cherry flavour (and I must say the cherry drowns out any orange flavour here) but I love this tea. I bought two boxes the day it came out and will probably buy two more before the holiday season ends.

My Mom used to buy this for us every year for Christmas and I never drank it. Found the latest box in the back of my cupboard and thought I’d give it a try, even though I could remember what it tasted like a bit.

For me, not so much a hit. It’s really hard on cherry which gives it a kind of candy flavour. I don’t pick up any orange at all. Brought it to work and shared and co-workers seemed to like it much more than I. I’ll let them finish off the rest.

Much better than expected. Cherry, amaretto-ish flavour in an average black tea base. Best strong, with a splash of cream and a pinch of sugar.
