I don’t ever drink these turkish tisanes by themselves, because it’s basically like drinking sugar. Which is a bit weird. However, I love having them to sweeten iced brews, rather than using boring old regular sugar.
I buckled and bought the cherry before Christmas when T2 finally had another tea society event (it had been SO LONG) and they had on a Christmas-themed brew they called “candy cane”, which I THINK was just peppermint and turkish cherry. It was fresh and delicious and I gave in and bought it.
I’ve since used it just recently with Rabbit Hole’s Ruby Zing, which was a bit too zingy and needed to be sweetened out (thanks hibiscus). A couple of scoops of turkish cherry into the 2L jug made it absolutely delicious.
I’ll try to remember to add a tasting note each time I splice it with something!
