I’m always on the lookout to try different teas, and last year TeaLyra’s Cherry Goddess became a fave. It’s a pure fruit and herbal tea made of cherries, cranberries, and hibiscus to name a few items. Both sweet and tangy to the palette, and damn good mixed with some sweetened frothed milk and some almond extract to make a maraschino cherry latte. I’m also thinking about trying it with equal parts lemonade to make a cherry lemonade tea during the summer. I already like drinking lemon/limeade with black tea, and lemonade tastes good with almost anything… so why not?
This tea was one of the gifts I gave to my best friend for Christmas last year. She wrote me back recently, and I laughed when she told me her hubby calls it “vampire tea” when brewed for too long. It’s funny because I always kinda had that thought anytime I drank the tea, or anything red going back to red flavoured Kool-Aid… which this tea actually tastes like a healthy version of, oddly enough.
Now I can’t help but wonder what a vampiric tea party would consist of.
