I’m really torn with this tea… I picked up 30g of this to try because the dry leaf just blew me away! It’s so nostalgic and delicious smelling… I could just wear the bag of it around my neck all day huffing it.
Dry Leaf: CHERRY! Cherry punch/soda, sour cherry, cherry tobacco
Liquor: a bit deeper smelling… Still unabashedly cherry-full
Tasting notes: ICED- black cherry syrup, blackberry leaf, sour cherry
So as I said, I’m torn with this tea. Dry leaf & liquor wise, the smell is fabulous. It’s important to note that I made teapop out of this, so my review isn’t going to be 100% legit, I realize. However, I made double strength and used plain sparkling water, iced. The flavor was good… I wanted to love it. I didn’t hate it, but it didn’t blow me away. There was something in the background that threw me off… Possibly the blackberry leaf? It made everything go askew. It started off tasting just as I hoped then, blech, something off. I also wished there was more sour cherry flavor once steeped & iced.
All in all, I will eventually power through all 30g, as it’s summertime, but I’ll be honest… I may pawn some of it off on ice tea for my daughter. Probably wouldn’t purchase again… Unless to use for fragrance sachets! lol!
