The black tea is a little harsh, and that’s the main thing I notice. I allowed this to cool to room temperature and added sweetener and milk. I feel like that improved the flavor a lot. Now I can taste a mild, but pretty fresh tasting cherry flavor. I still don’t really like the way it mixes with the black tea. I wish the flavoring were stronger and the black tea were a little better. I also didn’t taste any chocolate at all.
