My can of Republic of Tea Spring Cherry Tea is of unknown age and provenance, so I’m not going to attach a number but only report here that sencha does get old and turn brown eventually. The brew was potable but it reminded me of middling grocery store green.

I might try this again in the summer iced. It was just okay hot, but the liquor is brown and the dried leaves are brownish, too, so I do believe that it is past its prime!

I approached this tea with the usual amount of cynicism I reserve for this company. I have a love/hate relationship with Republic of Tea. This smelled really good, though, in the bag AND in the hot water. It had a lovely sweet cherry scent. When I took the tea bag out after a three minute steep it smelled really good—like cherries and tea. Impressed, I immediately set up a second tea bag in a quart jar as a cold brew for iced tea.

I like it hot. It’s a mild, pleasant green tea with a nice sweet cherry scent. Not at all koolaid-ish, it actually reminds me of dried cherries and it isn’t one of those tart fruit flavors that leaves me craving sweeteners either. It’s more of a scent than a flavor but it’s a pleasant one that mingles well with the tea. It is actually rather elegant for a snowy winter day and I kind of wish I had it in a fancier tea cup. Ah well, it is still lovely. Thanks to my big sis who sent it to me. Too bad it’s only a sample but I should be able to find more locally. I’ll probably pick some up this time next year—It seems really appropriate for February.

Postscript: Cold brewed the flavor was good at first but seemed a bit harsh soon afterwards and bothered my tummy. I like it better hot. Your mileage may vary.

Ugh, this one actually went in the trash after several attempts to brew it with various techniques, none of them resulting in a cuppa I could finish, let alone take more than 3 sips of. Tasted of chemical cherries and bitter green tea that’s been put in a pot of water and boiled for 30-45 minutes. At first I tried my usual 175F/1min/2tsp-cup “let’s meet” brew and got an industrial-chemical-bitter liquor that looked like green tea. OK, maybe its a bit delicate so change to fresh leaves, bring the water down to 160, a quick rinse to recover the leaves and then a 30-sec infusion. Now I had watery/diluted industrial-chemical-bitter liquor that almost looked like green tea. Definitely not a gyokuro so no need to try [email protected], so I switched gears and followed the recommended steeping instructions on the label — 200 F for 3-5 mins??! Ummmmmm OK, what have I got to lose.. I hit the “200” button on the kettle and stop myself from reflexively reaching for a tin of black tea, say a little prayer to the tea gods they don’t strike me with lighting for this blasphemy, and prepare to soak this sencha for 3 minutes. Now I had concentrate of industrial-chemical-bitter liquor that looked like massively over-brewed green tea, the bitter receptors on my tongue cried out in horror as a sip washed over them. I knew it was coming but no amount of preparation could have steeled my taste buds for that sludge.

I hate wasting tea, but what I threw in the trash wasn’t tea so no sweat.

Just finished my last one of these a few weeks ago. Definitely a great light tea. The cherry is not a “candied” cherry. Very nice!

Very light with just the right amount of sweetness, I wish I had this tea in my pantry more often! A very pleasing brew to have when the weather is fair and you feel like sitting outside.
