drank Cherry Blossom by Harney & Sons
1573 tasting notes

I’ve tried a few cherry-flavoured green teas, and to be blunt most of them have been pretty nasty. This one smelled promising – a mix of light florals and fruity cherries – but then all the other crappy teas also smelled great in their dry form.

The first thing I get when I take a sip is the green tea – and it’s a nice green tea, smooth and almost a little bit buttery. There’s a subtle cherry notes half-hidden somewhere in the middle of each sip. While I’d like a tea named CHERRY Blossom to maybe feature the cherry bit more prominently, I endlessly prefer this to getting an overdose of fake-cherry-cough-syrup flavour. At the end of each sip are some light floral notes that linger a bit on the tongue; nothing bold or perfumy, just enough to let you know that they’re there.

It’s perhaps not my ideal cherry-flavoured tea, but I found it enjoyable enough.

Have you tried the one from Den’s? I really liked it, perhaps my favorite cherry sencha.

Nooo, I didn’t realize that they had one actually – I don’t recall seeing it when I last ordered from their site.

They only have it for a limited time. I still have some, if you’re interested, I’d be happy to send you a sampling of it. Just PM me with your address and I’ll send it out to you. It will be at least a week or so before I send it though, because I don’t want to package up anything until I’m all better. :)

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
