If you’ve been to Japan in the spring, then you know about the cherry blossoms. People gather under the blooming trees to eat, drink and celebrate for days on end. This cherry tea brings you right there. It’s a festival of white Bai Mudan, green Darjeeling, Chinese green teas, dried cherries, coconut and rose petals. Many wish it could last all year long. But alas, come summer, it’s gone.

oh yes! a cherry tea without hibiscus! too bad it is limited online, but i got a good 50g before it sold out.
so tasty, very light and fresh. mildly floral with a true cherry taste and that coconut sweetness as an undertone.
very nice! will definitely try a re-steep to make this bag last longer! :)
Unlike a lot of the other sipdowns, I actually quite like this tea! Its light, fruity, tangying and slightly floral. It looks lovely brewing it in a clear container because of the tiny rosebuds in it. However, despite my enjoyment with this tea, I can see why people do not like it. I tried it with agave this morning (hot tea) and it definitely did taste like Vicks Cherry Cough Drops. Its good hot and cold but bypass the sweetener! Regardless of the medicinal taste, I do enjoy it! Cherry is such a hard flavour to replicate, especially since a genuine cherry flavour seems to be something only unicorns can replicate.
My wife cold-brewed a jug of this with a touch of agave. I’m always a little leery of cherry teas – I do love cherry, but cherry teas usually come with jasmine and rose and hibiscus and other things that make it more like a mouthful of shampoo than tea. HOWEVER. This was a pleasant surprise! There is a hint of floral in it, but it’s very fruity. The agave makes it taste like candy. Still a little dry, but very tasty.
I haven’t been here for a while which I deeply regret.I’m starting off with Cherry Blossom because it seems appropriate since the lovely things are blooming like crazy around my beautiful but rainy home province.
plus : FLORAL, FLORAL FLORAL!! ( I’m a BIG fan of floral..in fact I’m the only person I know who actually likes All The Raj!)
In the pouch it smells very cherry, a little sweet and lightly dusted with coconut..every time I shake the pouch or smell it again it changes in lovely ways and makes my taste buds ache with antici…..pation.Oh and it smells expensive like you shouldn’t be able to afford it.
First taste: Gently sweet and I can tell this would be much better iced.It is also a little bitter and I didn’t take into account the green tea in it so I recommend putting it for less then the recommended time for sure!
Reminds me of: Spring and picnics under a beautifully blue sky.
Perfect for: A good Icing.Sitting on the patio with good friends and people that can get the timing juuuust right.
Final Verdict: Nice,but ultimately uninteresting.I will try it iced next time but really I prefer the smell from the pouch and wish I could bathe in it( perhaps I could make it into potpourri?? is that even possible with tea?? SERIOUSLY let me know it smells that good.)Not floral or fruity enough either.The sweetness was nice though.
I just brewed Cherry Blossom for the first time. It is still pretty hot but man it smells amazing.
It also tastes pretty good. From the smell I was expecting a strong cherry taste but it is actually very nice the taste is there but in a more relaxed note.
Very impressed. I’m sure I’ll be enjoying this.
