 Details: 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 tea on steroids."
 Dry Leaves: Chinese black tea 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.
 Flavors: This tea is fruity, with plum and cherry flavors and a trace of vanilla.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
