This tea comes out real dark, but it’s exceptionally smooth with almost no bitterness. A sensational aroma of sour cherry, acerola cherry and fig.

Ingredients:
Black Tea, dried fig pieces, dried Acerola Cherries, natural flavorings.

I love the sweet, tart cherry and the more complex fig taste in this tea. The sweetness isn’t overwhelming.

Sipdown (103)!

Thanks Cameron B. for the sample! This is definitely a different fruit/flavour pairing, and I’m always up for a cherry or a fig tea so I was certainly interested when I saw it in your cupboard. It’s what I just finished as my morning tea today at the Kiosk…

Dry the leaf smells very sweet and fruity; very distinctly cherry candy with very little indication of fig; delicious and mouthwatering though. When it was still piping hot and I was walking to work, I thought it was coming off as rather sharp and tart, but once it cooled a bit it was so much more enjoyable.

The cherry does a really impressive job of staying far away from being medicinal and it’s not piercingly tart either (thank you Whistling Kettle for not adding any hibby!). It’s just the right balance between sour cherries and sweeter, candy cherries! Very impressive. The black base is definitely a smoother one too, and does a good job of staying enough in the background the not mask the cherry without being absent. Unfortunately any figgyness in this blend was pretty lost to me; for me this was all about the cherry. I’m still really impressed though and I would absolutely consider getting more of this if I could do so in a smaller quantity.

I’m not too familiar with the company, Whistling Kettle, so I may have to look in to that and see if (in the future) an order is doable/justifiable…

I agree, I wanted more fig! But I do love cherry too. :D

OMGsrsly

Tealux’s Cherry Fantasy is a cherry-fig tea that’s exactly the same as a couple I’ve had locally. It sounds and looks very similar to this one.

Cameron B.

Yeah, I think Whistling Kettle just resells teas from bulk suppliers, so you’re probably right.

OMGsrsly

I don’t think it really matters if the tea is delicious. :) And I did like this one!

I bought several samples when I had afternoon tea at The Whistling Kettle a few weeks ago, and I’ve been slacking on trying them all. This one was a no-brainer for me, I love cherries and figs, especially in tea! I don’t see many pieces of fruit in my sample, maybe a couple. The leaves are smallish and jet black. The smell is very strong, and it’s mostly tart cherry.

The steeped tea smells very good – it’s a mixture of sweet and tart cherry with a little bit of fig. I confess, I didn’t know what an acerola cherry was, so I looked it up and apparently they’re quite tart. Hm… This actually came out a teeny bit bitter, but it’s not bad enough to keep me from drinking it. I guess this one needs either a lower temperature or slightly shorter steep. The flavor here is really good though, in fact it reminds me of my favorite cherry tea from Dammann Freres. The cherry definitely dominates, though I can taste the fig as a sort of rich syrupy sweetness in the background. It’s nice as a supporting flavor for the rich cherry.

sample sipdown! haha i’ve got to get through these wonderful samples cameron B sent me :) before my orders show up. This tea is REALLY smelly haha. It managed to make all the bags in the swap cameron sent me, smell like this tea. Such that when i opened the tin that i put a different sample in, it smelled like this tea. (however, the teas weren’t contaminated so no worries there cameron!)

this is a really nice cherry tea. It’s not too sweet, and it doesn’t have that artificial cherry taste – maybe because of the type of cherry tea that this is? There’s no sourness to this either – i’m not really overly familiar with “fig” as a taste but maybe that’s why it’s got a mellow middle of the road flavour going on from a sweet/sour perspective. It’s also really nice to not see hibiscus in this blend, not that i have anything against hibiscus. :)

I’m curious as to how dexter would rate this one since i equate all things cherry with her haha. Thanks again for the share Cameron! this was a nice cup!

Cameron B.

Bah, I didn’t realize this one is smelly or I would’ve double bagged it! :(

Sil

don’t even worry about it. It didn’t contaminate anything – your bags are nice and thick…god that sounds..um… ok gutter out of my mind! or is that mind out of the gutter… wheeeeee!
