Sipdown!
So This tea is a bit of a sad sip down but shouldn’t be. The cherry comes across as cough syrup like in this blend and is very strong. I’ve been sipping on my bag of this so much that I’ve come to reach for it. That’s probably because green teas are my favorite and I haven’t had a good green tea in ages it seems like because I currently have tons of black teas. Since I wanted to branch out. The very slim to none green teas I have are unopened and so I’ve been saving them till my cupboard shrinks down a ton. I never did get to try this iced which was disappointing because I forgot to cold brew some. I definitely would like to try some more cherry blossom green teas in the future.
Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person on steepster who favors green teas more than any other variety.

I didn’t forget, I have just been waiting to finally have a business day off in my work schedule to get to go to the PO. I finally have one this coming Monday.

I know you’ve been busy with your presentations and stuff at the library. Thanks Again! Also I’m not too familiar mailing things myself but am close to Tea Chai Te and have never been. If it would be cheaper for me to pick you up some stuff and mail it.

My Tea Chai Te stash is pretty good at the moment thanks to a pretty generous gift card my Dad gave me for my b-day last month that I cashed in online with a pretty big order, but next time you are in Portland, I highly recommend giving them a visit! Portland has so much good tea between them, and Jasmine Pearl, and Steven Smith, and Strand… waaaa, if it didn’t rain all the time out there and barometric pressure changes trigger my migraines, I’d be tempted to move into that area for the tea alone! My friend and I took a trip to Portland for my birthday in 2017 and somehow ended up at Tea Chai Te every evening of that weekend because it was so good, and the baristas noticed and I think were a bit worried, hahaha.

Being only 15 minutes away I really have no excuse for not checking out the tea selections over there. That’s unfortunate that your migraines get worse. I get nosebleeds from climate changes very easily.

Re: green teas – I think you might be one of the few people who likes flavoured greens more! Straight greens are reasonably popular, but there’s definitely not a lot of love for flavoured ones around here – I feel like it’s because green tea is more apt to lose its good flavours quickly, and many blenders don’t seem to use high quality greens for flavouring. Exceptions are some of the smaller companies, like Butiki/52teas/A Quarter to Tea (and probably some others).

Also, I know I’m a year late to this, but I like reading old tasting notes when I review a tea!

^^ I actually prefer straight green teas. I just thought this was interesting because of the Sakura aspect. :) Love reading old tea notes too!
