Very nice tea!

I Purchased Cherry Blossom as part of the “Back from the Dead” event from Halloween. It was available online only at this time.

Pouring it into the tin yesterday it was ultra cherry smell! I was getting a little worried it be like “Cherry Potion” tea. I gave the two teas a sniff test, and the teas smell very similar.

This morning when I tried it, the instructions said 3-4minutes steep time, so I stuck with 3 minutes. It steepted into a white tea look and first sip I was blown away by it’s complexity – cherry (but no tartness), a bit of floral (from the rose and jasmine, I love that combo), and white tea. I didn’t notice the coconut, maybe it evens out the tartness of the cherry? In add, very delicate and balanced, with nothing over-powering the other flavours.

I’m about halfway done my cup, and I want to buy more to stock up – though I did buy 100g, lol and the tea is on the light side so there’s quite a bit there, so a little irrational. I hope it comes out again for the spring collection, as I’ll need more!

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
