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!
