As fragrant and beautiful as a cherry tree in full bloom, this delicate Chinese white tea, only harvested in early Spring, is blended fruitfully with natural cherry flavor, sweet blueberries, and tart red raspberries. It’s a fruitful brew to help start your day anew!
This is one of the best cherry teas I’ve tasted in a long time. But it’s so much more than just a cherry tea – this tea is ambrosia in a teacup! YUM!
The cherry flavor is the strongest flavor of the cup. It is sweet, and I can taste a hint of tartness from the raspberry. It isn’t a SOUR berry taste, just a little kiss of tart to add some contrast. And the blueberry adds another dimension of sweetness to the flavor of the cherry.
The base of white tea is tastes and feels soft with its light grassy taste and velvet-y mouthfeel. My favorite note in this cup is that of the rose. It is a very subtle flavor, but the floral tones it provides really complete the tea, giving it a well-rounded taste.
This tea is light and delicious – it’s perfect summertime refreshment!
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!
