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.

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Taiwan tea Crafts, Teavivre, Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard (or very often ! )

94 to 90 : Excellent tea

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even quite nice, why not having it sometimes, but well,it’s not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this thing supposed to be tea ?!?!?
