I received this in a package along with some truly amazing yarn and spinning fiber from somebody on ravelry. I immediately laughed at the name of this tea, and then oohed over the ingredients list because it sounded delicious.
I steeped a cup of this to go with lunch and it is divine. Smooth, slightly sweet and tart and fruity but not overly so. The cherries definitely come out. It smells like it would be very tart (from the cherries, I guess) but it is just the right amount. There’s a full-feeling to the flavor from the roses, a not-quite perfumy taste. I imagine if I had added sugar it would be more fruity but I really like it as-is now.
However, the sadness. I cannot find anywhere to buy more of this amazing tea. StevenBe is a yarn store in Minneapolis and they have an online store where they sell two teas they’ve commissioned from Bingley’s – neither are Pop Your Cherry Blossom. Alas. (However, both those teas sound amazing and I may have to place an order with them.) I have a message out to the raveler but no response yet. I really hope this wasn’t a one-off and I can buy more of this.
I think it would divine iced, as well.
