From Zen Tea

Simply stunning. A blend of high quality green tea with sweet cherry and morning rose flavour. Cherries have a distinctive taste and explode with rich sweet flavour when combined with tea and rose.
This tea is fresh and smooth with excellent depth and body. The cherry flavoring and subtle rose hints give the tea a wildly exotic character.

Price: $10 / 100g

I bought this more for iced tea but seeing that I’m going to Banff tomorrow (exciting!), I’m not going to start busting out my mom’s iced tea jug only to have to clean it again.

Anyway, the dry leaf smells very subtle. There is a touch of cherry. Middle of the road scent, neither natural nor artificial if that makes any sense.

Hot, it’s what I had expected. The cherry is on the duller side. It’s there, and a little on the sweet side. It’s not tart at all. The rose is hardly palpable here.

It’s pleasant but there’s nothing more to really say about it, except that I’m sure it’ll make a better cold brew.

Enjoy your trip

Sil

banff tea company! lol you could visit while you’re there haha have a great time!

Fjellrev

Thanks all! I actually visited the Banff Tea Company last year and wasn’t really impressed with any of their stuff. But I should go back and see if there’s anything new. :)

Sil

Good to know actually. I’ve been wondering how they might be.

Fjellrev

All the teas severely lacked fragrance, but most likely because they were stored in glass jars and exposed to sunlight. Aye.

Sil

Eek! I can’t buy tea from any place that does that with their actual tea stock.

Fjellrev

Oh yeah, so I went back and it’s the same setup. Glass jars, most barely fragrant. The sample in store was meh. Oh well, money saved for all!

Sil

Good to know its still like that! Hope you had a blast! I for sure miss my mountains even more hearing about them again

I’m drinking this cold brewed with my lunch, (a tomato sandwich with no bacon, sadly), along with a cup of mysterious black tea. I say mysterious, cause it’s a sample from Sil. I remember it’s a golden tip of some kind.

The thing is, after I emptied the content of the tiny pouch, my little wizard of a cat ran off with the pouch! I looked for a good 10 minutes, while the wizard just sat there, staring at me, knowing exactly where it was, but not saying a thing. What a little bugger, if he wasn’t so darn cute, I swear…

So I’m not gonna review it for now, since I don’t know what it is, but it was a delicious cup of black tea nonetheless and I have to thank Sil for it :-)
(Or I’ll have to browse through my cupboard later to se if I can “find” it by process of elimination which should take me at least a couple of days, lol)

Now on to this tea…I used what I had left for a cold brew cause I remembered how refreshing it was. Not that refreshment is needed really on this harsh winter season, but I drink ice tea all year around.

It’s a chinese green, not too vegetal and it mixes so well with the light taste of rose and the cherry. I just wished the cherry was more present. Just like most sakura types, the flower tastes is more present than the cherry. I don’t mind cause I love rose in tea, but I ADORE cherries!

All in all, a good and decent tea from Zen Tea to keep around.

Yvonne

Tomato sandwich….mmmmmm…

OMGsrsly

Now I want to go cook some bacon. :)

K S

We have a thief cat too. Have you seen my pen (socks, etc)? Ask the cat!

TheTeaFairy

Mmmmm indeed Yvonne!
Haha, OMGsrsly, bacon does make everything tastes bette :-)

Oh, KS, we have to come up with a kitty special task force, thieves live among us

TYs out to Zen tea for a sample of this tea!

Blarg, I’ve been mostly drinking unflavored teas that can survive the “Dump into tea pot without strainer and sit there all day” treatment, as I want to pound out my writing for NaNoWriMo without having to stop and make tea and wait for it.

DRY: Smells like those really sweet red cherries in a jar. Maraschino cherries? DROOLDROOLDROOOOOL

STEEPED: Strong floral mixed with a zing of sweet cherry!

TASTE: Lots of flavor! Strong rosey floral taste that is very fresh tasting. Distinctive cherry taste, not very sweet as it smells. A little bit of bitterness, maybe from the floral. The green tea is in the background, and it’s smooth, bordering silky.

COMMENTS: If you do not like floral, stay clear of this one!
This tea is pretty strongly floral – the cherry is a nice flavor. I did not like the bitterness I got, but I think I will steep this at 175 next time, which I think will help. Overall, pretty nice – but I love floral teas.

I received this as a sample with my order. Now I don’t drink a lot of cherry green teas, I don’t find myself craving them a lot but I do enjoy them a lot…if they are done right. So often I will try a cherry flavored tea and it will taste like cough syrup. Other times there’s a lot of hibiscus added to help bring in extra tartness. This has neither of those bad qualities.

This is a very nice smooth cherry rose sencha tea. I had one a few years ago that I really liked and could never find who did made it. I think it was a local store blend that you could only buy to drink in house. You couldn’t buy any to take with you. But this tea tastes a lot like that one. It’s silky smooth sencha that’s not totally buried, but the grassiness is subdued. The rose is nice and floral soft. The rose doesn’t overpower as I find it does in so many other blends. The cherry isn’t really tart at all, kind of tastes like those jarred cherries that you use to top sundaes, I have no idea what they’re called, but they are nice and sweet. This is a really nice tea, plus it can be steeped at least 3 decent times. I’ve gotten it up to five already with plenty of flavor left!

One thing I love about Zen Tea is that they include the steep times right on the package. I’ve been spared many an over-steeped tea thanks to companies that take that extra step (putting the info up on their website just isn’t the same!).

I was worried that the tea would be a bit cough-syrupy from the very powerful dry leaf smell. Fortunately, that’s not the case at all. The tea retains the cherry smell once steeped, but the taste itself is much more subdued. It’s rather floral, rather grassy, just a bit fruity. Everything is in moderation and it’s very smooth on the palate.

I wish I had ordered more than a tiny packet of this now that I know it doesn’t taste like candy, but c’est la vie. I’ll enjoy what I have and hope that it’s a tea that comes back when they restock.

Backlog 7/67 (Only 60 more to go! heh… heheh… eh.. :D)

Green tea! Yes this is green tea.
I guess. :D
Once again, it tastes vegetal and astringent to me. I’ve not fallen in love with a green yet.
The cherry was present, but the rose was too mild for me to notice it. Maybe my palate is just a mongrel and can’t tell these things. It understands strong flavors like SPICES and CHOCOLATE and VANILLA but not really subtle hints I think? Heh.

I gave this an overall “eh” rating. Again, not sure if Mandy or Cameron, but thank you for the experience regardless. :D

I don’t believe I’ve ever had a rose tea before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The dry leaf smells like smelling a fresh rose, next to like a cherry pie. Sweet and cherry and floral. Smells good, but I still wasn’t sure how it would taste.
I’m surprised by how much I like it. I didn’t taste much cherry, mostly just rose, though I think I might have had the water too hot. It was still very yummy. Rosy, with a touch of sweet cherry, supported by the slightly vegetal green tea. I really want to try it iced.

When I smell this tea brewed it always reminds me of two things, cherry soda crossed with cream soda, and babysoft perfume.

Having said that it is a really nice tea for those who enjoy floral cherry senchas and like all of the Zen Tea green teas I have had it comes to you incredible fresh tasting. I like that for this tea I was provided with harvest dates and provenance.

The dry leaf was quite pretty a bright rich green sencha scattered with rose petals. The dry leaf smelled about the same as the brewed but the brewed tea does smell sweeter.

The sencha underneath the tea is quite sweet, with little to no astringency. The tea has a medium body, and has a sense of thickness and creaminess in the mouth.

A sweet cherry flavour is prominent followed by a clean green flavour which is very slightly grassy, followed by a spicy floral taste from the rose, The rose doesn’t seem to be adding the bitterness I find it can add at some times. All of these flavours are neatly distinguishable from eah other and as it cools the tea base comes more to the fore front.

This tea resteeps well. I have resteeped it up to 5 times before and it keeps a consistent flavour for the first three steepings, at least, before it starts to change.

I don’t find that it tastes medicinal like some people report with cherry teas if anything the rose can make it taste a little powdery but the cherry is sweet enough that I dont feel like I am tasting perfume. It leaves an aftertaste like the one I get after eating black cherries. This is a nice example of this classic flavour.
