I had this one iced, earlier in the week for National Iced Tea day!
The dry matcha smelled amazing, and I realized that I never really take stock of the dry aroma for matcha in particular because I’m always so hesitant about accidentally sniffing up any powder – but maybe I should be paying more attention. This was like an amazing buttery, sweet maraschino shortbread that I used to buy at the Farmer’s Market in Regina…
Taste wise, it was definitely more sweet cherry blossom than maraschino shortbread which totally makes sense because that’s what this is supposed to taste like. It was refreshing on a very hot day, and really interesting in the balance it struck between fruity and floral. I enjoyed it a lot, but I kept going back to the incredible feeling of nostalgia that the dry aroma had given me.
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
