Will you cherry me

As soon as we laid eyes on this tea, it was love at first sight. Its gorgeous crimson liquor left us mesmerised. Its classic red cherry aroma sent our heart aflutter. But it was its irresistible balance of sweetness and tartness that truly swept us off our feet. Refreshing hot or iced, this blend of ripe cherries, hibiscus blossoms and little candy hearts will totally steal yours… or someone else’s.

I picked up one of the Valentine’s Day heart tins to try with this tea inside. The combination of ingredients seemed strange to me (carrots and raisins?) so I was apprehensive. I tried this one iced and it blew my mind. It tastes exactly like a pink Sweet Tart candy. The first note I get is nicely sweet and fruity and the back note is quite sour just like the candy. I really liked this one and am sad to have missed out on getting more. If this one comes back, I will definitely consider buying some more.

The cherry flavour was too overwhelming for me, the tea is tart and fruity, probably won’t be bad as an ice tea if you don’t mind the artificial cherry flavour.

This was a weird one for me. I really disliked it on it’s own-It was much more sour than I expected it would be. I suppose that to be fair, it tasted pretty much as described. There are very strong overwhelming hibiscus and cherry notes, with the beet and carrot sort of coming out a bit at the end. This is not a very complex tea, and is mostly just strongly fruity and sour.
However, I found that when you combine it with some white or green pure tea, the flavour softens up and is in my opinion much more pleasant. Overall, I really liked this blend much more when you are using it to mix with another tea than I do trying to drink it on its own.

This tea smells and tastes delicious! It’s just the right mix of tart/fruity for me.

The dry leaf smelled like cheap cherry lollipops – the kind that are usually packaged with boxed Valentine’s Day cards for kids.

The flavor reminded me of something I can’t quite place…Strawberry Colada, Hard Candy, Marshmallow Macaroon, Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait…? I can’t wrap my head around it, and I don’t intend to have another cup to analyze it further.

It’s certainly fruity, but I don’t get distinct cherry flavor…which is odd given the smell. The floral note seems really out of place, but it is quite light despite the abundance of rose buds. It’s tart and sour, and I’d expect that because of the sour cherries and hibiscus. Unfortunately, the raisins, beetroot and carrots (LOL, sounds like a salad!) aren’t enough to counter, or even compliment, the tart sourness.

Now, I’m a proud member of #TeamHibiscus, but this is a hard pass for me, with or without the blasted carrot.

I received a free tea of the day, and sweet tart was on tap ,I had wanted to try this tea and thought it would be the one for my free tea redemption, but it was just not special enough, I liked it the dry leaf smelled like a cherry, it steeped to a nice red colour and tasted just like a cherry sweet tart but at the end of the day I feel I would just see it in my cupboard and be like hmm its good but I want its great. Because I’m a tea freak I may still pick some up when It goes on sale.

Another in-store sample from today. It tastes pretty much like a generic red herbal. You know, like the hundreds of others with sweetened hibiscus. I like hibiscus, but for me, this is nothing new. The magic is in the pretty dry leaf. The end.

Valentine’s Day Tea!

This one sounded really nice to me, and the dry leaf actually smells really good to me – like cherry candy! It actually reminded me a little bit of the floral, sweet cherry candy notes in the Des Roses et Des Bonbons black tea blend that Camellia Sinensis used to carry. That was a good blend, and I was really sad when they stopped making it!

I steeped it up iced for my first tasting – and it’s not bad. I mean, the top notes of the drink are definitely really piercingly tart and sharp – like a sour cherry note. I mean, totally makes sense this tea literally has the word tart in its name. For some comparison, it’s probably more tart that Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait but less tart than Queen of Tarts. The finish is sweeter though, and more like sweet cherry candies with floral rose undertones. I actually expected more florals for the amount in the blend, but I’m happy with the amount that I found came through.

I don’t know – I don’t generally tend to love the overly tart teas/blends so I’m probably not the demographic that would likely be really into this one, but I do really like that finishing note once the tartness has subsided. Currently undecided on this one; I want to try it a few more times iced or cold brewed and see what I think of it after that.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.


I miss Des Roses et Des Bonbons :(

I tried this as a hot sample in store and really like it so I redeemed my two free teas on my account for this tea (one iced and one hot). This tea smells so delicious! On the drive back home, all I could smell was sweet fruity aroma. In hot form, I found it slightly tart and really fruity. It was equally delicious iced as well.
