While my favorite flavored loose green tea is Teavana’s Sakura Allure, sometimes I just don’t have the time or patience to brew it, especially if I’m running out the door trying to get to class. This is definitely a good stand-in for those kinds of days. It tastes slightly artificial, but nothing so bad that I can really complain about. Like Sakura Allure, you can taste both cherry and the green tea base, so it wins in my book for that. Granted, it doesn’t taste as fresh as SA, but in terms of being in a rush, beggars can’t be choosers. I would buy again, if only to stand in for my SA on occasion.
