drank Cherry Blossom by Harney & Sons
1798 tasting notes

Can’t sleep, so I decided to get up and sip a cup of tea. I haven’t had this one in a long time, and I almost gave it all away because I just didn’t get a lot out of it at first. I have given it to two green tea drinkers who both say it is their favorite.

I am glad I kept it because my tastes have changed over the past year. I no longer add sugar to afternoon tea or to green, white, or oolong teas. I think it has made me more sensitive to the real flavors and more delicate nuances of the teas.

As a flavored green, this is very smooth and tasty. Not too vegetal, but also not overly fruity. In fact, I have to really concentrate to detect the cherry flavor! The aroma is very nice, and again, not too fruity. This is a nice contemplative cup, and hopefully it will relax me off to dreamland…

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
