This is an interesting flavor in that the cherry is fairly prominent in the mix, and the white tea escapes the sugary cloud Jones uses in its organic line. There’s also a nice cherry scent and aftertaste, and the strength of the flavor provides a nice contrast to the mildness of the white tea. It’s great that the brewmasters at Jones gave them the room to do this dance, although too bad that they’re doing it while sugar rains from the rooftops. Still, the product is not as sweet as the likes other mainstream RTD teas and the fact that it's organic gives the product additional market appeal. As far the packaging goes, the cherries on the simple label are attractive and the use of the word "organics" is very prominently placed. Overall, a uniquely flavored white tea that is definitely worth trying.
