Black Cherries in Sweet Cream from A Quarter To Tea. . . .

This Darjeeling, cherry, and cream tea is profoundly decadent. This blend tastes like a dessert that’s melty and gooey. The cream is so creamy that I feel like a farm where it came straight off the cow. Like, a fancy French cow.

A Quarter To Tea has a good grasp on cherries. I never liked cherries until their Chocolate Cherry Oolong showed up in one of my sample packs. It was a game-changer. So much so that my hopes were high for this one — and it succeeded.

When I went to this tea’s site, I discovered that this tea was inspired by Game of Thrones:

“Illyrio smiled as his serving men spooned out bowls of black cherries in sweet cream for them both.” (Dance with Dragons)

In case you forgot Illyrio (I did), he was the one that took care of the Targaryens while they were in hiding. If this is what he was serving people, well, I might hide out there, too. Does he have any space available?

Here’s the scoop!

Luscious black cherries with a medium body darjeeling base, paired with heavy notes of cream and vanilla. Decadent enough to make a magister proud.

Drogon from Grimoire Tea

Summer of 2017.  That is when Game of Throne fans have to wait until the next season.  If only you could have heard me wailing when the last season’s final episode aired. . . Game of Thrones is one of those shows that either you are 100% in love with are not at all.  I have yet to find a so-so fan.  This show is one of the first ones that my hubby and I started to binge on when we first started dating.  If you know the show, you can only imagine how uncomfortable that was for us, but we became addicted to the show first episode in.  Anyway, let’s chat about this tea-a GoT fandomtea-Drogon from Grimoire Tea.

Drogon is the name of one of the dragons on GoT.  He is sleek, dangerous, and probably the most powerful of the trio of dragons featured on the show.  Which makes me wonder about this tea and the blend’s connection to the show.  This is a tropical green flavored tea. You would think this blend would be a bold black tea with a chai twist.  But I am so glad it isn’t!

When you first open up your gorgeous packaged bottle (they are dipped in wax!), you are immediately greeted with a sweetness followed by a tropical touch.  There were huge pieces of pineapple and I loved seeing the pops of color from the blue malva flowers.  I steeped up this tea using traditional green tea parameters and steeped the tea for about 3 minutes.  The result?

A gorgeous simple  yet vibrant tropical green tea with a pineapple background and a sweet twist.  I swear I can detect mango as well or maybe that is just my brain messing with me!  This blend packs a brilliant flair of tropical love in each sip.  As wonderful as this tea is brewed hot, I know this tea would be dynamite as a cold brew.  So I will save the rest for a cold brew session later this week.

Drogon from Grimoire Tea is a wonderful example of a very well done green flavored tea. All the flavors are well balanced and go so well with the sencha green tea base.  Makes me wonder if this wasn’t made for the sweet chldlike side this dragon has whenever he is around the Mother of All Dragons.Regardless, this mama is loving it!
