Love, love, love this concept!!

The dry leaf aroma of this tea is seriously drool inducing – cakey chocolate, a bit of cream, but most importantly this sweet cherry aroma that totally nails the supple-y sweet “cherry filling” style of cherry that’s in a Black Forest Cake. It’s basically exactly what I would expect a Black Forest inspired tea to smell like.

The taste is good, but the epicness of the dry leaf aroma doesn’t perfectly transfer. It does get really close though – and I definitely didn’t expect it to taste exactly the same. The honeybush comes through a lot in the taste and, while I like the taste of the honeybush Anne uses as her base a lot, a part of me wanted less of it so that I could focus more on the dynamic of the chocolate and sweet, syrupy cherry. Though, I think it’s a brilliant base choice because it sort of naturally leans a bit into that “cakey” element when coupled with the chocolate.

The cherry is nice, but it loses the battle to the chocolate in terms of flavour dominance. In a black forest inspired tea (in my opinion) the chocolate _should_be the stronger flavour but I felt like the chocolate really had a chokehold on the cherry here and I didn’t taste much of it until the finish as the more dominant honeybush and chocolate notes waned a little.

Overall, excellent tea though! Cannot wait to try it with a spot of milk.
