I admit ever since I went David’s a few years back I haven’t really gone back to Teavana but considering my border-line obsession with cherry blossoms I just had to go. While picking up my Sakura Allure box set (which was the reason I went) this was second on my list of must try teas. For someone who likes cherry and rose teas…I have to admit the scent is powerful.
Once you get past that and the wonder of where they got the idea that this was delicate, it’s not that bad. It’s actually quite good. I was sipping it most of this afternoon while serving tea at the lodge. In comparison to “Cherry Blossom” by David’s it is not the most natural of flavors but I expect that when going into buying blends from Teavana.
So…drinker beware it’s going to be quite the experience. Sip slow and it should have less of a medicinal kickback. Hopefully. (Yes, I am doing my best to convince myself about that. Haha.)
