drank Cherry Tea by Wissotzky Tea
45 tasting notes

Finally got around to doing a proper review for this.An amazing cherry scent when you first pour the hot water over it. A 5 minute brew gives a mild black tea with a cherry aftertaste and a little bit of tartness (might be the hibiscus – but for once the flavor actually complements the fruit rather than detracting).

As noted in my previous review, longer brewing time gets you stronger cherry flavor, so have fun with it.

A good non-caff alternative is NMTeaCo’s Pondi Cherry: http://steepster.com/chai-mera/posts/301920

TRAVEL NOTES: Individually wrapped teabags make this a good at-work tea. Probably not a good while-commuting choice, though as it can get overly strong.

Flavors: Cherry

(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).
