I bought this tea because I am in love with The Republic of Tea Memoirs of a Geisha cherry green tea. That was a limited edition tea.
Since I have been trying so many teas, this tea is not on my “loved” list anymore…it’s too finicky to make properly, and not enough cherry for me.
I think 1 or 2 minutes would have done the tea better, less bitter, I’ll try that next time.
I am dropping my rating because it is finicky and I have found so many better teas as I have branched out
