From New Mexico Tea Company

This tisane boasts a medley of cherries, cranberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Perfect with a little bit of juice as a nice summer cooler for the kids or, with a little bit of sparking white wine for an evening party spritzer. You can also use it as a base to make into popsicles!

Pondicherry is a former French colony located in Southern India and is often referred to as La Côte d’Azur de l’Est, or The French Riviera of the East. Pondicherry is uniquely located within Puducherry, which consists of four disconnected regions, Pondicherry, Karaikal, Yanam (located on the Bay of Bengal), and Mahé (located in the Arabian Sea).

Cherry, elderberry, rosehips, hibiscus, cranberry, blackberry, raspberry, and natural cherry flavors.

This tea is very very tart, so unless you can drink tart, be prepared to add sugar. I bought this tea to make iced.

Lots of cherry flavor with raspberry, blackberries and hibiscus notes. Iced, the cherry flavor stands out more than the other berryness going on. Both hot and cold, this tea has a tart dryness, despite sweetening. However, I found Pondi Cherry not flat at all!

Sorry, I finished it the other day. I got the 1oz size, and that was only 3-4 cups worth since its a heavy tea.

I received this from nxtdoor. Thank you so much. I’ve actually drank it a few times, and this never disappoints me. I’ve drank it plain, I’ve added it to a straight black, tonight I’ve added a bit of Chinese green to it. It’s really versatile and can be added to almost anything.
It’s tart, it’s juicy, it’s cherry – what more could you want. I’m sad to see this one leave my cupboard, I would order it again.


this has been on my shortlist for teas to try the next time i restock at NMTC. good to know you like it, makes me feel more confident i wil too!

The dried tea has such a rich cherry scent that I was tempted to just forget the hot water and eat it out of the packet. :D Once brewed there’s a strong cherry/mixed berry flavor, although IMO too much of a tart hibiscus aftertaste. But if you’re okay with that sort of thing then I definitely recommend it.

This was my free monthly sample when I ordered from NMTeaCo online . (I love cherry but don’t like hibiscus-based fruit teas so it could have gone either way.) It’s quite a generous sample, the packet looks like it has at least 4-5 servings.

Nicely tart and refreshing. Good hot but I think better iced on a hot summer’s day.

I meant to try it on its own but I forgot. I made concentrated amounts and added it to 7up. Kind of like a cherry limeade and reminded me how much I once liked cherry 7up that I forgot all about. My son liked it also, why wouldn’t he.
