drank Cherry Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
2750 tasting notes

My tiny tin from my free Davidstea set is nearly gone, so I suppose I should write a note. There was a huge cherry and plenty of coconut in my teaspoon among all that green tea. It’s a tasty tea. Not sure if it’s cherry blossom persay, otherwise why might there be coconut here? Who knows, but this is a lovely cherry tea with a green base. A nice note from the coconut adds a flavor level, even if I’m not sure why it’s there at all. I forgot rose was even supposed to be in this cup, so no notes of that at all. I was on the last sip of my second cup when I realized it tastes exactly like one of my favorites: Quarter To Tea’s Spumoni. (and hopefully it wasn’t just the parceling of the ingredients in the teaspoon were so similar to Spumoni.) So if you’re a fan of this or the other, give them both a try!
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for a full mug // 30 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 28 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep

Flavors: Cherry, Coconut

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
