Anyone who’s been following me knows that I’m a HUGE cherry fan. I’m also a fan of AQ2T. I’ve really enjoyed other cherry flavored teas from them. So…… I was really excited when Indigobloom was kind enough to share some of this one with me. I should love this.
But I don’t….. sigh. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I’ve steeped a few cups tonight – water temps 80-85-90 C – I’ve played with the steep times 2.5 – 3 – 4 minutes. I’ve resteeped leaves – I’ve used fresh leaves. I’ve added sweet, I’ve added milk, I’ve added both. Nope can’t do it. This is really icky. It’s cough syrup – and not just the fake cherry thing, but actually medicinal barely resembling cherry ewwww.
Thank you so much Indigobloom for sharing, I don’t understand why I don’t love this. There are several positive reviews so this is obviously something that just doesn’t work in my world. I may pass on the rest to someone else who will appreciate it. Sad face…..
