Had this one again today to decide whether it was a keeper or if it will be going in a swap.
I found this tea extremely tart this time and the flavour sub par. Again, it reminded me of one of my favourites, Silk Road’s Japanese Sour Cherry. The difference is that this tea gets its tartness from hibiscus and it gives you that dry mouth feeling. I don’t know where the sour cherry get’s its sour from, but it’s a totally different mouth feel. This tea does not have any specific fruit flavour, whereas sour cherry is strictly cherry. I guess if this reminds me of sour cherry then it must taste a little like cherry. Japanese sour cherry is an awesome tea and an awesome experience.
But anyway, back to this tea. It tastes like a tart fruit, but not any specific fruit, definitely not pear. I don’t detect any oolong whatsoever, which surprises me because out of all my Teavana teas, this one has the biggest tea leaves to other crap ratio. I can see how someone may like this tea because it’s not horrible, it’s just not one I would restock, or even finish the bag.
