This is a joyful flavoured tea . It has a black tea base , basic but correct, which welcomes and accommodate burlat cherry, black scrumptious .
Normally the dry leaf is mixed with pretty pink flowers but for today they decided to remain in the bottom of my box.
Just by opening the tea box , waoooh what an heady scent of beautiful ripe and sweet cherry … .I want to prepare a full teapot , let’s go.
The cut sheet swells a bit , not so much.
The liquor is of a black / dark red, deep .
For once the cherry keeps its promises in a tea : a real cherry, natural , fleshy, voluptuous , generous . A cherry “forbidden fruit” , not a cherry blossom with just a little cherry fruit.
And for once it is a black tea base and not a green one… Frankly thank you Betjeman & Barton. And congrats.
