1st: If you are LOOKING FOR a STRONG GREEN TEA flavor… THIS IS NOT THE TEA FOR YOU

I got this tea with the sakura allure gift set, which i love. The best way i can describe the flavor of this tea is like unsweetened cherry-cranberry juice. It also taste better cooler then warmer. I have tried to steep it twice, but the second steep is VERY floral with a lot of the fruit flavors gone. However, I do taste more of the green tea flavor.

It should be noted that due to the green tea in it, if brewed for too long, it does get a bitter after taste


Specifics

Brew Temp: 175F
Steep Time 2:30 + 3 Minuets.*
Tea Base: none or later steepings of Thai Mountain Oolong (teavana)
Sweetener: 1/2 TBS light Agave or none at all per 14oz glass

Note: the cooler the temp it is drinked at, the more juice like flavor it has.

*To get the full cherry flavor but with out the bitterness of longer steeping, leave the cherry pieces out side of the tea infuser and steep for about another 3 minuets.

I would recommend this to someone who loves cranberry juice and as an alternative to juice with out all the sugar and calories.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 30 sec

It’s ok, but not great. Might need added ingredients or tweaking, and is below average.
