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.
