2021 Sipdown 43/365!
C is for… Cherry Snowcone!
My main recollection of this tea was that Sil really liked it. I was horrified to see that the date on the label dates this tea to nearly 7 years ago – my memory had assured me that this was, at most, like 4 years ago. Has it really been that long, tea friends?
I also remembered not finding this tea as good as she had, which seems odd as I’ve been looking for cherry teas. However, upon icing the last part of this packet, I think it’s because there is just too much hibiscus here, and not enough cherry. I prefer Sweet Tart for cherry, as the tartness doesn’t seem to be quite as heavy, and the cherry more prominent. I’m sure that sweetened, this would be fantastic (and I’ll admit that I’m glad DT didn’t sweeten this one – but I’d prefer a level of hibiscus that isn’t so puckering to require it).
