Thanks Azzrian for the sample of this tea!! it’s rather perfumey and fruity all at once. I knew right away that I would either looooove it, or meh it.
I’m kinda glad that it was a “meh”! as I don’t need another tea necessity in my cupboard :)
Still I’m so glad to have tried it. Another one off my wish list!
As for the tea itself… this was far too floral for me, and not enough cherry (more general fruity/medicinal)
I can see how this might appeal to some EG lovers out there though, maybe enough to loooooooove ;)
The base was a little too clouded for me to determine much about it
Ok yah I’m a little overtired right now. Sorry about the random review!

Tea #5 for Traveling Tea Box C

I’m always hesitant about green teas. On one hand, I have some I absolutely love, but on the other, most I’ve tried have not been very tasty to me. However, this one had such an interesting name that I even give it the chance to open the bag and take a quick sniff. And it smelled amazing! I was scared that if I brewed it hot, the green would make everything taste terrible, or the cherry would make everything tart or cough syrup flavor, or the rose would be way too floral. You can see how finicky I am with greens!

So instead, I cold brewed this one over night. There wasn’t much left of this one, and I used up what was left. I tried to make the water about the right amount, but it still ended up a bit weak. I could still taste it though! My first thought with this was “Wow! This tastes like bubblegum!” But as I sipped more, I could pick apart the flavors. There’s the green tea base, here’s the rose adding some floral notes, there’s the cherry, not cough syrup flavored. This is one that I would have loved more of.

I’m so weird with green teas too. Either they’re too vegetal or the flavouring doesn’t go well with a green base or I’ll randomly like something that seems to work haha.

It seems like we have a lot of tea tastes in common!

Bath and Body Works

That is immediately what this tea makes me think of. There’s a good possibility I oversteeped AND overleafed (for some reason I didn’t really measure either, no idea why), but the bottom line is this tastes exactly like if Bath and Body Works made a green tea.

That said, I am a BnBW ADDICT, and oops, I’m loving this. I use their products on a daily basis from soaps to body wash to body spray etc, and I’d be lying if I said I never considered what they might taste like. Now I know. So I’m telling you now, this tea is definitely not for everyone, heck it’s probably not for most. It’s a mild sencha green flavor with the cherry and rose both turned up to 11. Y’all know how I love my Splenda, and I’m drinking this straight no problem. It’s that pleasing to me.

I feel as though this review will turn more people off this tea than not, but I wanted to be honest, so here you go. I recommend it, but only to weirdos like me.

The cherry flavor is very strong, as several others have noticed. The rose scent and flavor lingers in the steeped aroma and the aftertaste. The cherry makes it sweet even without sugar or honey, though I do add a bit of honey especially when it’s chilly out for the extra throat protection. Low astringency too.

Cherry flavor was way too overpowering.

Maybe it’s just me, but I didn’t like the cherry flavoring in this tea. It was pretty overpowering and didn’t really let the sencha come through.

i love green tea, and i love cherries, so before i even tried this i knew it would become a favourite. and i was right! great tea with just the right amount of cherry for sweetness and rose petals for a hint of flowery taste!

This makes a beautiful, light iced tea. The rose is quite subtle, it’s mostly a cherry tea.
