    One of my new favorites

    When I first tried this in a single steep packet, I thought it was too strong for me. Gradually, it grew on me and now it is one of my favorites. I recently tried it iced with honey and it is WONDERFUL. If you like licorice this us a MUST try.

    A rare Tea Forte mis-fire

    Oh, how I wanted this tea to be good. And oh, how I was disappointed. Tea Forte's Black Cherry black tea bills itself as a combo of black cherry and vanilla flavors, with a hint of licorice root. It's a failure on pretty much all levels. The aroma is off-putting, like Robitussin cough syrup. I had hoped that the cough medicine aroma was limited to the tea in the bag (this wouldn't be the first tea that tasted awful in the bag but was pleasant when brewed), but no such luck. It's a big, nasty cup of hot Robitussin. But, I drink bad tea so that you don't have to. The flavor is barely black cherry. It's a sort of mildly sweet black with a hint of something almost sticky. The combination of the cough medicine aroma and the slightly unpleasant flavor makes for an outright unpleasant drink.

    Wonderful Flavor

    Tea Forte teas are the most flavorful, high quality teas I have found. The Black Cherry is exceptional!

    Very good taste but a very finicky tea to get right. Brew temp is very specific.
