This was one of the teas from the new collection that I was most excited to try, but I’m still kind of on the edge about it. The smell was good; it made me confident this was going to be a pretty safe bet. At first sip I like it. There’s cherry, similar to Cherry Blossom, which I really enjoy. Then the black tea base comes out and it really turns me off. I’m pretty sure it’s the same (if not, very similar to the) base used in Strawberry Fields, which I have never been fond of. It’s very astringent and just doesn’t mix with the cherry flavour well. Then the whole thing kind of comes together at the end and I find myself saying “okay, it kind of tastes like black cherry soda/Dr. Pepper”. Drinking a lot of this at once makes me want to dump it down the sink, sipping on it makes me think I can at least get through my cup. Either way, not a good buy.
Update: My bf tried some and noted it kind of tasted like gum, and he’s absolutely right!
