drank Cherry Bomb by Shui Tea

Another tea from Paul M Tracy!

My first sip was WOW! Chili peppers! I wondered why I got that first when Paul said he picked that up last. I tried again, this time letting the tisane sit on my tongue for a second. There it is! I got the cherries (which come out nice and strong in the aroma), the carrot, a little tiny floral taste, then BOOM! The bomb went off! When I swallow this is really when I get the full impact of the chili pepper. It warms your throat and the heat lingers first at the back of the throat, then on the tongue, but not in a “GAH! GET ME A GLASS OF MILK!” kind of way. I think this would be awesome to drink when you have a stuffy head and want to open it up and soothe your throat, too, but perhaps the chilis would burn a sore throat. I agree, the cherry aroma and flavor are nice and don’t have that sickening medicine profile that some cherry-flavored things have. Thank you for another new tea to taste, Paul!

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about ten years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
