Another flavored green from my Palias de Thes gift set…

I steeped this at 3 minutes at 170 F and found it to be quite unremarkable so it will be hard for me to review this one. :) The base of this green tea is fairly mild and slightly vegetal, a bit nutty. The cherry element here is fairly light and lends a bit of sweetness along with a slightly tart element. I have to add I’ve tried a few cherry green teas in the last year and it’s been difficult for me to find one I really think is good! They all end up reminding me of cough syrup. I want something dark and luscious like a bing cherry. Maybe there’s a cherry black tea out there for me?

I think I’ll have to try cold brewing the rest of this sample…

I think that’s my problem with most flavored teas. The flavoring is usually overdone or artificial tasting to me. ://

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
