This is my third cherry tea, the others being Teaopia’s Wild Cherry herbal tisane and Silk Road’s Japanese Sour Cherry green tea.
Unlike the Wild Cherry, Cherry potion has quite a tart bite to it, thanks to the hibiscus.
I actually like the hibiscus in this! It reminds me of Bear Trap, crisp and fruity, really refreshing both hot and iced. I can’t drink the Wild Cherry hot, it’s too sweet and too much like a ripe cherry, and something about hot cherries doesn’t sit right with me (can you tell I don’t like hot cherry pie? haha).
The Bai Mu Dan definitely takes a back seat in this one, but I’m not sure it’s entirely a bad thing. At the same time, I feel like this would go wonderfully with a green base, something nice and crisp to compliment the crispness of the cherry and hibiscus. I feel like the white base is too soft, too subtle, it needs something with more oomph, you know?
