From Upton Tea Imports

Cherry flavored Japanese green tea (Bancha with twigs). An exotic evening tea and a refreshing change from traditional flavored teas.

It has a delightfully cherry scent, and the flavor is very earthy. It’s not an ultimate favorite but I’d never see cause to turn down a cup of it.

If you don’t mind the suggestion, you might want to try 2g of leaf steeped in 4oz boiling water for 30 sec. Hope that helps bump up your rating!:)

There is a strong cherry fragrance that is slightly artificial but it is primarily a fragrance and not a taste. The tea is nice without much vegetal taste.

It is very nice once it has cooled and would make a good iced tea.

The aroma is reminiscent of Luden’s cherry cough drops. The cherry doesn’t carryover too strongly to the taste. Light and refreshing.
