From Harney & Sons

Cherry Blossom is an irresistible blend of green teas and vibrantly fragrant cherry flavors. Handpicked full-leaf Chinese green tea is lightly scented with mildly sweet cherry notes, brewing a light-bodied green cup. A whirlwind of fantastical fruit flavor, Cherry Blossom is a spring awakening to the senses.

I finished my tin of sachets of this tea today. My son and I made two steeps of the last three sachets in the big tetsubin.

When I first started drinking tea I couldn’t taste anything cherry flavored about this. Then I started to appreciate it. Now I notice that the light, natural tasting cherry flavor comes out most as the tea begins to cool, and that is when I enjoy this most.

I only own this because it came in a special gift set I wanted a couple of years ago. I am considering repurchasing it in loose leaf, but I think to replace this green I may go with Silky Green from Bird Pick Tea and Herb that Quiltguppy sent to me. It was exquisite.

Thanks Jillian

This is VERY subtly cherry flavored – barely there, really, but what is there is pleasant. I would rather cherry be subtle than over the top and chemically tasting which this is NOT. Thankfully. The green tea isn’t grassy or overly dry or overly sweet, either.

This isn’t my favorite – it could be better but it could also be a lot worse.

I think this would be a nice starter or base green tea. Might even shine more as an iced green tea.

I like this one so-so.

Fiddling sent me a generous amount of teas from Harney & Sons around May, and I’ve unfortunately only gotten around to trying a few, like the awesome Florence. Thank you, Fiddling!

The cherry flavour seems ok, if a little artificial. Mid sip is sweet, floral cherry while the finish is bitter, sour cherry candies. It’s not bad, and tastes on par with the few other cherry flavoured greens I’ve tried.

This isn’t really my cup of tea, though. I’m not into the flat, grassy notes and the sweet-sour aftertaste this one has. I think I may be done with cherry greens.

sample sipdown! Thank you fiddling! I should say that fiddling was wonderful enough to send me three sachets of this lovely blend to try but when i brewed this up at work today, suddenly i magically had none left lol. Not that i’m complaining, because i do love sharing tea but i thought it fair to give credit to fiddling for sending me more than 1 of these haha.

This tea isn’t bad, but it’s not the kind of cherry that i love. This is more of the artificial type of cherry that you find in most things. This is also a green tea, which isn’t my preferred cup of tea. But it is a light, refreshing tea that isn’t overly floral or “too green.” My only real complaint is that the cherry flavour isn’t quite there. But this is a decent enough tea so i’m happy to have tried it :)

I’ve tried a few cherry-flavoured green teas, and to be blunt most of them have been pretty nasty. This one smelled promising – a mix of light florals and fruity cherries – but then all the other crappy teas also smelled great in their dry form.

The first thing I get when I take a sip is the green tea – and it’s a nice green tea, smooth and almost a little bit buttery. There’s a subtle cherry notes half-hidden somewhere in the middle of each sip. While I’d like a tea named CHERRY Blossom to maybe feature the cherry bit more prominently, I endlessly prefer this to getting an overdose of fake-cherry-cough-syrup flavour. At the end of each sip are some light floral notes that linger a bit on the tongue; nothing bold or perfumy, just enough to let you know that they’re there.

It’s perhaps not my ideal cherry-flavoured tea, but I found it enjoyable enough.

Have you tried the one from Den’s? I really liked it, perhaps my favorite cherry sencha.

Jillian

Nooo, I didn’t realize that they had one actually – I don’t recall seeing it when I last ordered from their site.

LiberTEAS

They only have it for a limited time. I still have some, if you’re interested, I’d be happy to send you a sampling of it. Just PM me with your address and I’ll send it out to you. It will be at least a week or so before I send it though, because I don’t want to package up anything until I’m all better. :)

My Harney and Sons order came in today!! I couldn’t wait to try this tea so I ripped open the box hit green tea on the Breville and here I sit with my cherry blossom tea.

First I must say the pink and white tin this comes in is beautiful. While I sip it I am very surprised that I am not tasting any hints of cherry or cherry blossoms. I do taste the green tea and it’s a good green tea the same green tea base H&S uses in their Coconut Ginger Green Tea/Bangkok the green tea base has a slight hint of peppery and it’s a little buttery and at the end you catch the slightest hint of fruit but mostly I get floral notes.

It’s not a bad tea I might try steeping longer to see if I can get more cherry blossom flavor.

Ricky

I caved on a Harney order instead of Andrews & Dunham’s Series #4! I got this! Can’t wait to try it!

SoccerMom

Silly you should have told me I would have sent you a sample! It’s good I just don’t taste cherry.

Ricky

Haha, I ordered it before I purchased it =P

Wow… I’m not going to even bother to edit my comment above. I meant to say. I ordered it before I read it (being your post).

Lack of caffeine today, I tell you.

I’m getting a whole tin of this! Wohoo! I think I ordered like seven tins from Harney and a buncha samplers. If there website wasn’t super difficult to browse, I’d probably end up having a larger shopping cart. I guess it’s good that I lost my patience browsing on the website.

SoccerMom

I know I get tired on their website too but I get tired on a lot of tea websites. I love the tin that the cherry blossom comes in. I mean it’s not rockstar like A&D but it’s quite dainty.

~lauren.

It must add a pretty color to your cupboard, SoccerMom!

Ricky

A&D versus H&S…. hmmmm… I dunno…. I wish A&D’s tins were paper! I always wash my teaspoon before I scoop some leaves and my hands are wet so I slowly mess up the label =(

Day #9 of 24….and tea of the afernoon.

I received this sample from my Harney dealer….I mean the lovely ashmanra. Thank you again for all the fun things to try out….

This is lightly floral and cherry scented. Really, pretty good for a green. It turns out I like them quite a bit more than I thought I would, and my taste for them is growing. I also like that they don’t require any additions for me. Good, but I still prefer the Tropical Green.

12 oz water, 1 sachet of tea, 180 water, 3 minute steep. Straight up!

This sample came courtesy of SoccerMom…..Honestly, I was leery of this tea. Would the cherry flavor be overpowering, sickeningly sweet – reminiscent of cherry-flavored liquid Tylenol of my youth? …. After sipping, I was relieved. The cherry flavor was very subtle and did not mask the delicate green tea flavor.

Personally, this tea is too mild and subtle for me. But for others, this would be a calm and relaxing treat…Darn, if only I wanted to buy this one, I could get the precious tin!

Cofftea

Ditto! I have the same cherry fears!

SoccerMom

Nope unfortunately I really couldn’t even taste the cherry.

SoccerMom

Lori- I love the pink tin this one comes in!

I’ve had this hot before and despised it. It tasted like hot cough syrup. But since it’s getting warmer I’ve been playing with my flavored teas, making them iced. So, in my hopefulness to make this one drinkable, since I still have over half the tin, I cold brewed three sachets in 1 quart of water, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and lots of ice cubes. This tea is really sweet, and iced it tastes great. I’m really glad I gave this tea a try iced, it doesn’t have that cough syrup taste to it at all and now I have confidence that I will use all the sachets without feeling like I’m a sick 5 year-old!

It is so difficult to find a cherry tea that doesn’t taste like cough syrup, IMO

Bonnie

I bet this would taste good with 7up or some lime.

Invader Zim

@Amy oh-I had one a few years ago that wasn’t bad, no cough syrup flavor. But my tastes have changed a little since then so I have no idea if I would still like it or find that it tastes like cough syrup now. If you’re interested it was Japanese Cherry Sencha from Harrison and Crosfield.

@Bonnie-I bet it would taste good with some lime in it, unfortunately I don’t have any, maybe next time I make some. And I’ve never tried tea with soda before, it sounds interesting though.

Bonnie

I used fruit tea to soak apples in the frig especially if there is acid in the tea to keep the apples from browning when making a fruit salad. Keeps them crisp and adds just a little flavor that’s nice. I first used a hibiscus pineapple tea and it was fantastic, added cut up strawberries and chunks of smoked salmon and put it on a bed of spinachor arugula. You can drizzle with olive oil…salt and pepper. Really good…everyone was after me for the recipe…ha…just tea.

This is a bagged tea in a silk bag. It smells very strongly of sour cherry, or more like sour strawberry candy. On brewig the liquor is clear yellow. It smells strongly vegetal green tea but also has a sweet sakura cherry smell.

The taste is great! It tastes very much like sweet sakura tea, not flavoured black tea, etc, but the traditional cherry blossom tea. There is a faint green tea taste.

I am finding with most Harney and Sons tea that they taste better once starting to cool. This tea does leave a bitter aftertaste, which I would attribute to the cherry flavour.

I also find that most of Harney’s tea bags contain a lot of tea and are good for re-steeps. I re-steeped this one and it tasted exactly the same as the first steep.

i think most of the tea bags are supposed to be for 12oz. at least that’s what i remember reading from the samples that I received. So i seem to get a lot of mileage out of them

Lala

I was actually brewing it in a 16 oz travel mug at work. Ha ha.
