drank Cherry Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
165 tasting notes

I’m so glad that this one came back as I didn’t get a chance to try it last time it was out!!! I picked up about $3 worth of this and mint to be (which I will be tasting and logging very shortly) on my visit in today. I also had this as a to-go cup. Overall, the dry tea seems to take on a more fruity note with the floral in the background. When steeped, both the aroma and taste highlight the floral notes. I found that the fruit really comes in with a sourness later on in the sip which lingers on for a while. I think this tea is well balanced and that the fruit and the floral really play on each other to enhance the tea. I would compare this to love tea #7. I found that tea also has a strong interplay between fruit and floral. This tea however is much lighter than the love tea (my guess is because it is a white tea vs. a black tea and also because of the chocolate in the love tea)- I think I do prefer Cherry Blossom due to it’s lightness. I will have no problems finishing my sample and will hopefully have time to re-stock before it disappears again! I also want to quickly mention that the longer the tea steeps, the stronger the sourness seems to be so for a more floral cup, I would go for a lighter steep-time and vice-versa.

I am a tea fanatic and have also recently made the transition from vegetarian to vegan! I always have tea in my hand and in my overflowing cupboard!

I prefer black, green and white teas. I have recently discovered mate and oolongs. So far I’ve enjoyed them however, I have not tried very many. I am not often a fan of rooibos as I tend to find them overly woody but have found there to be some exceptions. As for herbals, I am only recently beginning to drink these on a regular basis (mostly iced) as the weather gets warmer, but these I am willing to try. I have not yet developped the taste for pu’erh.

I tend to only rate and review the teas I drink once (maybe twice if my opinion REALLY changes; especially if I were to have them prepared a different way). I currently only use Steepster for logging my reviews of David’s Tea although I do drink teas from many different companies. Every time I visit the store, I try something new in a cup to-go as I enjoy going through the tea menu and marking off teas as I try them. My goal is to try them all!

My rating system is as follows:
90-100: Wecome to my permanent collection! (worthy of a 100g tin!)

75-90: Definetly would drink again but maybe not all the time. I would buy a small amount (50g or less) to have once in a while.

50-75: I will finish the cup but not my favourite.

25-50: I will try to finish the cup but may not be able to.

0-25: Not my cup of tea…down the sink we go!
