The dried tea has such a rich cherry scent that I was tempted to just forget the hot water and eat it out of the packet. :D Once brewed there’s a strong cherry/mixed berry flavor, although IMO too much of a tart hibiscus aftertaste. But if you’re okay with that sort of thing then I definitely recommend it.

This was my free monthly sample when I ordered from NMTeaCo online . (I love cherry but don’t like hibiscus-based fruit teas so it could have gone either way.) It’s quite a generous sample, the packet looks like it has at least 4-5 servings.

Flavors: Berry, Cherry, Hibiscus, Sweet, Tart

(FYI: If I have a low numerical rating + “Would recommend” it means it’s a good quality tea but has something I personally don’t like. It’s not you, it’s me.)

Smaller and less deadly than its sister Chimera (“kai-mera”), the Chai-mera makes mischief by over-brewing tea, burning unguarded leaves, and kidnapping small livestock. It is typically found in the backs of cupboard and sometimes under beds where, if not aggravated, it can serve as a delightful foot warmer.

TEA RATINGS: My version of Steepster’s emoticon rating:
90-100 :D = One of my all-time favorites / a cupboard staple.
75-90 :9 = Pretty tasty!
50-75 :) = Quality tea but not to my taste OR Might drink again if gifted.
25-50 :/ = Ranges from drinkable to decent. (Wouldn’t go out of my way for it, but might finish what I have.)
01-25 XP = Down the drain with ye!

SEARCHING FOR: a good herbal or noncaf (no hibiscus, please).

I sometimes include a TRAVEL NOTES section about whether a tea stands up to rugged use (won’t overbrew in a thermos, can make a decent cup with hot tap water, etc).
