This is a really good green tea. I disagree with some of the other users though.
To me, it can be kind of bitter. I’ve tried steeping it for less time and using cooler than boiling water. I even added sweetener, but it’s still bitter. Granted, my taste buds usually like overly sweet things and can’t take bitterness at all.
Brewing it as an iced tea works but makes the bitterness even more pronounced. I prefer it hot. And this is a very heavily cherry flavored tea! There’s nothing subtle about it! Lupicia does make a lot of very subtly flavored teas, but this isn’t one of them.
If you want a more subtle cherry tea, try Sakura Vert. You have to like sencha to be able to appreciate its unique flavor, but it’s delicious! I tend to water down my Sakurambo Vert to cover the bitterness, but then I also lose the cherry-ness.
Still, it’s a good tea and understandably on Lupicia’s best seller list (well, the black tea version is but same thing).
