Herbal and Decaf TTB.

I don’t know why someone put this tea in here, it is neither herbal nor decaf, but I decided to give it a try. My first thought was that it doesn’t smell or taste of cherries to me, which seems a little odd considering the name. It does smell and taste quite strongly of rose, which is nice, but I don’t really care for the green tea here. I did probably oversteep it, but it’s quite bitter and that combined with the rose makes me think of soap. If I were a bigger fan of green tea, I might play with the steep times here, but I think I’ll just pass this on to someone who might enjoy it more.

Flavors: Bitter, Floral, Green, Rose

I’m trying to drink down my stash because it’s gotten very much so out of hand. Eventually I’ll have to re-evaluate what I’ve actually got still…

I made this iced (running low on herbals to ice and it’s too hot for traditional tea) and it’s lovely. I’ve started making iced tea by the pitcher since it’s just so much easier that way, but it also ends up using more tea leaves, for better or for worse. I’m just glad to be finally making a decent dent in the stash!

The pomegranate flavor is very subtle but still enjoyable.

Amazing green colour!
Has that particular Japanese green tea taste, very rich, feels a bit sweet and has a little spinach taste, it seams.
Excellent after taste!

This tastes a lot like Lupicia’s Jardin Sauvage, except that the fruit flavors here are more pronounced. The citrus notes are the strongest, followed by something sweeter and vaguer that, on re-reading the description, I think must be peach. The green rooibos doesn’t come through very strongly – I’m not getting the honey whole-heat pretzel flavor I often taste with green rooibos – although it works well as a base with the fruit flavors. The blend is quite sweet and very refreshing. I think I like it a bit better than Jardin Sauvage, just because I prefer the balance of fruit to rooibos here. I should mention that I drank this iced (brewed hot, then chilled). I’ve only had Jardin Sauvage hot so far; I’ll have to ice it and see how it compares.

An excellent green with a nice range of flavors. Nutty, smokey, and always a fresh light flavor. This tea can be infused several times with good results. A great everyday tea.
