Sencha green tea blended with cherry flavour and ornamented with rose petals. A highly fruity cup.
Based on the description, appearance and fragrance of this tea, my immediate thought is that this is my favorite “springtime” tea – aka cherry flavored Sencha tea. This is not my favorite cherry Sencha, but it is certainly very good. Very, very good!
The cherry flavor is very strong in this blend. It is sweet with just a hint of tartness that lingers on the tongue. The tartness is just barely there, and cuts the sweet flavor just enough so that this does not become an overly sweet or syrup-like.
The Sencha green tea seems to get a little lost in this cup – the cherry flavor is very strong and seems to overwhelm the flavor. I can taste the fresh, vegetative flavor of the Sencha tea, but it is quite light, especially in the first few sips. Once I arrived at mid-cup, the flavors became more balanced.
This tea is very refreshing when served iced – and because of the strong fruit flavor, kids love it!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
