drank Cherry Blossom by Harney & Sons
754 tasting notes

This is a bagged tea in a silk bag. It smells very strongly of sour cherry, or more like sour strawberry candy. On brewig the liquor is clear yellow. It smells strongly vegetal green tea but also has a sweet sakura cherry smell.

The taste is great! It tastes very much like sweet sakura tea, not flavoured black tea, etc, but the traditional cherry blossom tea. There is a faint green tea taste.

I am finding with most Harney and Sons tea that they taste better once starting to cool. This tea does leave a bitter aftertaste, which I would attribute to the cherry flavour.

I also find that most of Harney’s tea bags contain a lot of tea and are good for re-steeps. I re-steeped this one and it tasted exactly the same as the first steep.

i think most of the tea bags are supposed to be for 12oz. at least that’s what i remember reading from the samples that I received. So i seem to get a lot of mileage out of them

I was actually brewing it in a 16 oz travel mug at work. Ha ha.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
