Backlog from last night:
Sipdown! I’m trying to get a few in before I get a deluge of tea over the next week or so, and this one was a prime candidate. I’m seriously considering restocking this once I break my tea buying hiatus in September, as I don’t have any cherry black teas in my cupboard, and that’s a flavour I really like (that or Nina’s Quatre Fruits Rouge, which is a red berry mix).
What I really love about this one is the scent of the figs that mingles with the cherries. It’s deep and dark and sweet, like molasses or burnt sugar – by the way, brown sugar is an excellent accompaniment to this.
Bumping the rating up a bit to 80. Thanks so much to Ubacat for sending me a sample of this a few months ago!
