Our Review
Chef Jean Joho, formerly of Alsace and now of Chicago and Las Vegas fame, asked Mike to do a new dessert tea in 2011. This tea is inspired by fruits found in many Alsatian desserts. Many do love its bold fruity flavors. Mike describes it as " Paris on steroids".
Dry Leaves China Black is the base of this tea, which is combined with bits of dried cherries.
Liquor The liquor of this tea is a lighter brown because of the addition of the cherries to the tea leaves.
Aroma When you smell this tea you will feel like you are in an orchard because of the strong scents of cherry and plum.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This tea has a medium body and a taste of fresh fruit lingers in your mouth.
Flavors This tea is fruity with plum and cherry flavors and a trace of vanilla.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

A perfect summer tea, hot or iced. Very nicely balanced tea and fruit flavors.

Perfect for fall and winter, spring and summer
Average Review:

I bought this as a sample first and then a full tin and now even more. It is perfect just on its own, not needing sugar or milk although you could always add a little 1/4 teaspoon if you wanted to take some of the astringency out. It is very full bodied, but not overly malty as the fruit balances out the force.

I've lived in Alsace and my parents lived there for twenty years and it could not be more aptly named.

No dairy or sweetener required
Average Review:

This is a lovely pick-me-up kind of tea. It's black tea, which gives you a burst of caffeine energy, and the fruit flavor really shines through to add enough sweetness so that you don't need to add anything else. Just measure, add boiling water, steep, and drink it hot or iced. No milk or sugar needed, just yummy, lo-cal energy. Great for a 3:00 p.m. slump.
