I had Cherry Ripe tea with a very good friend of mine today.
And while I’m not a fan of the chocolate bar, I loved the sound of the flavours and notes in this tea. Firstly, smell this tea before you drink it. It has the most wonderful scent. Some comments on the company’s website are reading like it smells much better than it tastes, but I can’t say I agree.
I could taste the coconut, with undertones of chocolate and the sharpness of the cranberry. The overall colour was a lovely apricot/gold and the flavours were all well-balanced and none overpowered the other. If I had one criticism it would be that it was easy to tell it was a flavoured black tea, but considering that was what I ordered it’s hardly a critique.
I like this tea. Coconut is one of my favourite flavours to have in a black tea so I’ll keep it in mind when ordering or purchasing again.
