Thanks to Ceylon Star who drove both Amariel and me to Sidney the other day, I was finally able to visit Janet’s to see what she has in store. I grabbed this one as an afterthought because I’ve been on the quest for a good cherry tea. The funny part is I’m not even a fan of Black Forest cake, since chocolate cake has always been underwhelmingly meh to me.
The dry leaf smells promising. A prominent cherry with a milk chocolate lingering behind.
I’m not really getting the cherry in the taste, though. And the chocolate is extremely subtle. Luckily I have a little more to experiment with, and at least the base isn’t astringent.
I added some half and half and it reminded me of drinking a plain chocolate tea. It’s good but I was hoping for more cherry.
