The smell straight from the bag is incredible & pretty strong (like cherry candy) but it mellows once you put the leaf in your brewing vessel.

Steeped, the cherry tasted isn’t nearly as intense as the dry leaf aroma would suggest. The balance between cherry and sencha is quite nice. The later infusions lose the cherry taste and you get more sencha.

This is the perfect Spring and Summer tea. It’s great iced on a hot day. Since it’s only available for a limited time (maybe 2 months near the beginning of the year… in other words NOW), buy a couple pouches and store one unopened in the fridge. You’ll be glad you did when the weather changes and you have this refreshing treat to drink :)

Note, this does have cherry flavoring added.

I’ve emailed them twice and they have yet to reply and tell me how long this is going to be available. Surprising for them, they normally have wonderful customer service. I’m surprised this wasn’t their sale item this month. Does it taste like cherry flavored medicine at all? That’s my one concern w/ cherry flavored anything.

I’m not too averse to the cherry flavoring and don’t really associate it with medicine. Though I have read others say it has a medicinal taste.
