Yumm-O!
I was searching around for a tea and was sniffing about and smelled something deliciously sweet. After a few bag sniffs.. I discovered it was this! So I decided now was the perfect time to try it =)
The taste is really nice. Delicate white tea base with hints of vegetal green.. then a lovely, real cherry flavour. I was nervous about trying this tea as I picked up a sencha kyoto cherry rose tea from a shop in Barkerville and it was horrific. I mean bad. I’ve tried brewing it hot and hot-to-cold and it just tastes like cherry cough syrup. Maybe I should just do a straight up cold steep. Who knows….
Either way, for that reason I was really nervous about the cherry flavour of this tea but its really lovely and gentle. I do enjoy this tea quite a bit.

Bio

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
