Usually I am not a fan on black tea as it can be overpowering, however this tea tastes amazing, especially with a dash oat milk. It is for me more like a treat tea, rather than every day choice, so that makes it even more special!
Very cherry but not overwhelming or particularly sweet -- quite a good brew!
I first came across this tea at a posh afternoon tea at a hotel. I enjoyed this tea so much I took details and ordered it myself.
I did think it might not taste so good without the fancy surroundings but I was totally wrong.
It tastes so fresh the black tea giving the drink depth and the cherry highlights giving it extra flavour and enjoyment.
The leaves are loose and large, none of this “sweepings off the floor”. I make it in my own special teapot which has an internal strainer. I do not take milk or sugar with it but that’s because I do like a strong cup of tea.
I'm addicted to this tea. It has a lovely flavour and wakes me up in the morning.
I searched for this tea after drinking it at an afternoon cream tea experience.
The tea was so refreshing with the added flavour of cherries I had to buy it.
It most certainly hasn’t disappointed as it is a very refreshing drink. The leaves are a good size and not at all like the sweepings so many teas are made of. The flavour is complex with subtle difference through each mouthful.
Utterly delighted and will certainly be buying this again.
Just out of interest I am enjoying this tea without milk or sugar.
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!

If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
