Celestial Seasonings Black Cherry Berry Review

Like Cherries? Then try this tea!

Summary : This tea is about as close as you can get to munching on a piece of black cherry candy, without the drawbacks of sugar and calories.

Review : I love cherries. Wild Cherry is by far my favorite flavor of Life Saver. I can live off of wild cherry life savers in fact, if, of course, I didn't die from malnutrition first. And so, I was a bit excited to give Celestial Seasonings Black Cherry Berry tea a whirl, despite some bad experiences with other teas from Celestial Seasonings.

I wasn't horribly impressed with my first contact with the tea. Yeah, ok, it did smell ok after I opened up the package. But, it was hardly overwhelming. Certainly nothing that would knock you over and shorten your life span by a few years.

Still, the aroma, while hardly awe-inspiring, was still pleasant. And so I gave this tea the benefit of a doubt and brewed a cup to see what happened.

This is what Celestial Seasonings says about this tea : "A luscious treat for your senses, each brewed cup releases a deep ruby-red swirl brimming with the uplifting scent and delicious flavor of fresh cherry and berries."

The Black Cherry Berry herbal tea from Celestial Seasonings contains the following ingredients : Hibiscus, rosehips, roasted chicory root, blackberry leaves, hawthorn berries, natural black cherry flavor with other natural flavors, chamomile flowers and sweet cherries.

And you know what? This tea, much to my relief and surprise, lives up to its billing. Once brewed, this tea does indeed have a deep ruby-red color as well as a scent of cherries.

More importantly, of course, is that this tea really does taste like cherries and black cherries. As I'm a cherry junkie, I suspect I was destined to like this tea to some degree. Still, I wasn't exactly expecting to really like it, you know?

So, to all you cherry lovers of the world, give this tea a whirl. While there are better cherry teas in existence, for a supermarket brand, this is not a bad cherry tea at all.

Recommendation : Yes. If you are fond of cherries, you and this tea are meant to be together. If you don't like cherries, well, don't even try it...since cherries is all this tea is.
