I bought this tea because I am in love with The Republic of Tea Memoirs of a Geisha cherry green tea. That was a limited edition tea.

Since I have been trying so many teas, this tea is not on my “loved” list anymore…it’s too finicky to make properly, and not enough cherry for me.

I think 1 or 2 minutes would have done the tea better, less bitter, I’ll try that next time.

I am dropping my rating because it is finicky and I have found so many better teas as I have branched out

Have you tried RoT’s Spring Cherry? I remember being in love with that one when I worked at a cafe that served RoT and had 20 or so varieties. I’m not sure how it compares to memoirs of a geisha as I didn’t get to try that one.

I decided to email ROT and ask
within a few hours i got to find out that is the tea i love! only they renamed it so it isn’t linked to the movie after that promotion, when i have room in my cupboard i am buying some!

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
