31 tasting notes

I bought this tea for my mother, who is a really big fan of cherries. I myself, well, let’s just say cherries and I haven’t been friendly since I was in the fourth grade. I did give this one a try though. The smell in the bag was lovely so I thought it only fair to give it a chance. Even steeped, this tea smells lovely. The cherry flavor really does come through and it was sweet enough on its own. I second the smell of sour cherry gummy candies. That’s exactly what it smells like. How does it taste? Not exactly like sour cherry candies. It has a hint of a floral note and I suspect a longer steep would bring about an even stronger hibiscus note, of which I am really not a big fan, so I’ll definitely be sure to keep the steeping time at under 6 minutes in future. This tea was nice, but I think it would suit my tastes better iced. The after-taste is pleasant and fruity, but even after finishing two cups, the taste of white tea was nowhere to be found. I also can’t taste any of the mango. Regardless, as a non-fan of cherries, I really did enjoy this tea. Not amazing, but definitely nice.

Bio

I’m a 22 year old city girl who loves the hustle and bustle of urban life but like everybody else, I just want to come home at the end of the day and curl up with my dog, my tea, and a good book.
I’ve never cared much for coffee, but got into tea after a visit to Lupicia in Hawaii. What started off as a small box set of souvenir tea has turned into monthly tea shopping trips to local tea shops and a cabinet in the pantry just for tea!
