I haven’t been on Steepster for a while so it’s nice to be back. I’m starting the process for buying a house whilst at the same time closing my jewellery business down, plus I am recovering from a bad cold that left be bed ridden for over a week.

I made a large teapot of this tea last night, since I have my taste and smell back (for the most part) I really wanted some fruit tea, preferably sweet fruit tea. I opened the pack and the blend jumped out with some sort of medicinal cherry scent, similar to some sort of cherry cough syrup. It was thick, sweet and sour but that medicinal essence (whatever it was) was very strong.

So I prepared the tea and waited the long steeping time of roughly 8 or 9 minutes, I could see the water becoming more and more red from the hibiscus.

Finally as I poured the cup I could note that the medicinal scent was still there but the cherry became more defined and sweet. For the most part the teas flavour and scent matched, it had the same medicinal elements in flavour, I’m thinking it could be the way the cherries were preserved. I couldn’t taste any other fruit besides the cherry but the hibiscus and rose hip added some tartness, though I would still say overall the blend was of average strength for a fruit tea.

It was just a weird tea in my opinion, it was ‘ok’ but not something I would consider buying again. I’m putting it down to whatever the cherry was preserved in as to the medicinal taste and smell. But drinking something that reminds me of medicine is strange in itself. This tea is just not for me.
