drank Cherry Blossom by David's Tea

I have to confess I’m not the biggest fan of David’s Tea – too many disappointing blends come out of there in my opinion. However, I was at the mall today and figured I would try a cup of something I’ve never had before. I had a cup of this hot, with no sweetener. This is a blend of white and green teas with cherry, rosebuds and coconut. I did enjoy the cherry/floral flavor of this. I find that cherry is such a difficult flavor to get right in tea. This wasn’t too bad but it did seem slightly high on the artificial flavor. Probably would not turn down another cup if it was offered to me, but it won’t be a purchase.

For myself I find with DAVIDs, the simpler the blend, the more likely I am to enjoy it. I find they have a really good selection of straight green teas compared to other companies I order from, which is something I really like. As for herbals, there’s a few I really enjoy (like straight peppermint, mulberry magic, cold 911, ginger beer, chamomile) but they don’t tend to invest in a lot of “medicinal herbal” blends and instead focus of fruit blends (ESPECIALLY with hibiscus- which I DO not DRINK HOT) or candy pieces which is something I’m not in to.

So with that being said, I hear where you are coming from with their blends lol
