drank Cherry Blossom by Harney & Sons
111 tasting notes

My Harney and Sons order came in today!! I couldn’t wait to try this tea so I ripped open the box hit green tea on the Breville and here I sit with my cherry blossom tea.

First I must say the pink and white tin this comes in is beautiful. While I sip it I am very surprised that I am not tasting any hints of cherry or cherry blossoms. I do taste the green tea and it’s a good green tea the same green tea base H&S uses in their Coconut Ginger Green Tea/Bangkok the green tea base has a slight hint of peppery and it’s a little buttery and at the end you catch the slightest hint of fruit but mostly I get floral notes.

It’s not a bad tea I might try steeping longer to see if I can get more cherry blossom flavor.

I caved on a Harney order instead of Andrews & Dunham’s Series #4! I got this! Can’t wait to try it!

Silly you should have told me I would have sent you a sample! It’s good I just don’t taste cherry.

Haha, I ordered it before I purchased it =P

Wow… I’m not going to even bother to edit my comment above. I meant to say. I ordered it before I read it (being your post).

Lack of caffeine today, I tell you.

I’m getting a whole tin of this! Wohoo! I think I ordered like seven tins from Harney and a buncha samplers. If there website wasn’t super difficult to browse, I’d probably end up having a larger shopping cart. I guess it’s good that I lost my patience browsing on the website.

I know I get tired on their website too but I get tired on a lot of tea websites. I love the tin that the cherry blossom comes in. I mean it’s not rockstar like A&D but it’s quite dainty.

It must add a pretty color to your cupboard, SoccerMom!

A&D versus H&S…. hmmmm… I dunno…. I wish A&D’s tins were paper! I always wash my teaspoon before I scoop some leaves and my hands are wet so I slowly mess up the label =(
