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. And unlike a spring festival, you can enjoy this deliciously fruity tea all year long.

I find this tea repulsive. The smell from the tea in the container was amazing and refreshing, which is the exact opposite of the actual taste of the tea. This tea left a bad plant taste in my mouth. Shout out to megaxpink for punishing me with this tea
I think it may be the coconut I don’t like in tea. Really dissapointed I don’t like this one and tried to drink it a couple times just to be sure. Im getting a floral, then cherry then coconut flavours, can’t seem to make it work for me! Even followed the recommendation from the lady working at David’s Tea to let the water sit for five minutes before adding the tea so that it’s the proper temperature-ish.
Flavors: Cherry, Coconut, Floral
Nope! Nope nope nope! I smelt it, I cringed, thought “whew boy that’s pretty strong cherry” but figured I’d give it a fair shake. I steeped it, smelt it, and thought… okay. I can work with this. I was wrong. I was hoping for more floral in this, but it was just pure sweet cherry and I couldn’t finish it. Fortunately my mom loves this, so I’ll send it her way. If you like fruity teas, I’m sure this is fantastic, but I just can’t seem to get on board with fruity flavours.
Such a shame, the dry leaf looked so pretty that I was half in love with it for that reason alone.
I got this a a tea-to-go at my local DAVIDsTEA today, as I decided back at the start of the year that I am not allowed to impulse-buy the new teas that come out there unless I try a to-go cup first and can see myself drinking more than 1 cup haha. I have had far too many 25g bags of teas I bought just because they were new, and had a cup and didn’t drink the rest of the bag haha. Not going to happen this year I hope!
So yes, I have been wanting to try this since FOREVER, I missed out last year as it sold out so quickly, so I picked a cup up today. Oh, and btw, I COULD NOT for the life of me find this tea in the database! It didn’t come up searching cherry blossom..not sure what’s up with that. I tried to add it to the database eventually and it finally said there is already a tea called that, and had a link to the page. Weird!
So this tea, I steeped it roughly 3 minutes, not sure what the water temp. was, but the tea was decent so it must have been low enough. The smell was nicely fruity and aromatic. As for the flavor, this is quite tasty! It has very strong fruit notes, some tart floral notes from the cherry and roses, and there is also a creaminess that I was not expecting. It is light and tasty. It also reminds me of strawberry rhubarb parfait by DT a bit, haha not sure as there is no overlap in ingredients, maybe the tart cherry flavor is reminding me of rhubarb?
Overall, this is quite a tasty tea, and it was exactly what I wanted today at the mall. Unrelated note, I found a beautiful dress that has cherry-blossom like flowers on it that I want to buy, but am having trouble justifying. It matched this tea well enough! Maybe I’ll pick up 25g of this tomorrow, with that dress :P it is tasty enough that I could see myself restocking a bit of this for a light, happy spring tea.
Okay, has anyone else tried this and been immediately reminded of that pink cherry flavoured Trident gum? I haven’t had it since I was a kid, but one sip of this tea brought me right back to my childhood.
First of all, this tea is beautiful. (http://instagram.com/p/yqOY1IP8CZ/?modal=true).
I also thought it was pretty delicious. The cherry flavour (which appears to be natural due to the presence of dried whole cherries) is very strong. So much so that even though it was a great treat, I’m not sure if I’d choose this tea on a regular basis. However, I could definitely appreciate the light floral notes as well as the slight creaminess added by the coconut. Overall, it’s quite sweet, so I imagine that opinions will vary widely depending on whether you’re a fan of sweet teas and cherries. I can’t say much about the base tea, because the cherry was so overpowering it may just as well have been herbal. I probably would have enjoyed it more with a grassier green tea base, but that’s just me.
I thought it was quite pleasant. Not run-out-and-buy-more pleasant, but I’ll definitely enjoy finishing what’s left of my little heart-shaped tin.
Flavors: Cherry, Coconut, Creamy, Floral, Fruity, Rose, Sweet, Tart
I like this tea. It is enjoyable to drink. However, it is not nearly as impressive as I hoped it would be, especially considering how expensive it is! I had high hopes that this does not quite satisfy.
To make matters worse, I constantly over-steep this tea (my fault, not the teas fault)… However, if I want a nice floral tea I think next time I would go with The Glow or something that won’t be so easy to screw up, because this one is alright but didn’t super impress me.
Flavors: Cherry, Coconut, Floral, Rose
I got this back in the spring because I love cherry blossoms, I was born in the spring, and after all, even my screen name is “sakura”! That being said, it’s nice, but not mind-blowing. I appreciate the cherry flavor, although there’s not enough of it, but the floral puts me off a bit. Not enough to stop drinking it, I WILL finish what I bought, but most likely won’t get it again. Haven’t tried it iced – only hot – and it’s soothing that way, but based on the general comments, it sounds like a not-so-great idea. I may try it iced once before I finish it.
Flavors: Berry, Cherry, Flowers, Metallic
