This smells incredible. The aroma of cherry and almond is teasing my olfactory nerves, tantalizing me to take a sip. Well, of course, I’m going to give in. I’m never one to resist such temptation!
Very tasty, indeed. The cherry is lightly tart, which is particularly noticeable at in the aftertaste. There is also a fresh, fruity sweetness to the cherry flavor, and it melds beautifully with the toasty, sweet nutty flavor of the almond.
But what I think makes me happiest about this tea is that I can taste the tea. It tastes fresh. It has a crisp vegetative taste to it, and no bitterness. The rooibos is not a strong flavor to this cup, but it seems to accent the nutty flavor of the almond and the sweetness of the overall cup. The addition of the berry flavor and raspberry leaves help round out the flavor, enhancing the tart notes and solidifying the fruit flavor.
This is the first of the teas that I’ve tried from the new Skin-Smart line from Tea Forté, and I have to say that I like what I’m tasting. If judging by taste alone, I would say that this tea represents the way I want my skin to look: fresh and vibrant!
