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.
