Any green tea flavour is annihilated by the overpowering artificial cherry. Quite like diluted cherry essence for baking. Extraordinarily pungent. Not great.
15 Tasting Notes
Warm, mild and very smokey. Slightly astringent. Altogether pleasant.
Nice iced. Sweet and delicious.
Astringent with a chemical lemon taste. Bitter aftertaste after 3 minute steep.
Mellow, fruity, refreshing and addictive green tea.
I’m not really a green tea person, but I’ve been trying recently to “get” the appeal of green. This has certainly helped.
The first jasmine tea I’ve tried. It is also the last.
The one good thing about getting this tea was discovering I really, really, really don’t like Jasmine.
At least I know to avoid it in the future.
Not rating it since my dislike of jasmine is hardly a factor in whether or not this is a good jasmine tea.
This won’t discourage me from blindly buying teas online though.

This is a very good oolong. The taste is deep and rich with only one teaspoon in the pot. It is also delightfully sweet, despite being an unflavoured variety. Not at all bitter.
I’m rating this as the soft-drink that it is. As a soft-drink, this is great. Very refreshing.
Decent oolong. Surprisingly resilient to over-steeping (one of my bad habits).
This is the tea I probably drink more than any other. I’ve tried other Earl Grey teas but none really come close.
2 sugars with lemon or just lemon depending on my mood.
Tastes good. Smells better. Would make great potpourri if it weren’t so expensive and difficult to get in this country. Very pleasant to drink.
This is by far the most pleasant smelling fruit tea I’ve come across to date. The taste, while not living up to the aroma, is very enjoyable. I use more of this tea than my standard oolong to get the same richness of flavour, which is a problem when you are using tea this expensive and difficult to come by here in Europe (I picked up my last batch in Kobe last year and I’m running out!).
Too much bergamot (typical of Japanese Earl Grey in my experience). Otherwise, not wholly unpleasant.
