Picked up Tea Forte’s Noir collection today on a whim—mostly because Peach Brule sounded delicious. Haven’t actually heard of this company before so I just kind of had to hope for the best.
First up to try is Black Cherry. I liked this a lot better than DAVIDs’ Black Cherry, that’s for sure! The cherry flavour is subtle in this but noticeable. The base is basic and unimpressive, but not unpleasant (though the very last sip had an astringency I didn’t get through the rest of the cup). Considering all that’s packed into this tea I expected something a bit more complex, but this is pretty much as advertised—black cherry. Not a rebuy, but I can get through the second bag.
Flavors: Astringent, Cherry
