Today we were late getting started and barely had time to chat about our brews but wow, this one was worth the wait. What a splendid mix of flavours and lovely aroma for today’s busy schedules. I hope tomorrow is actually today again so we can have more (a la Ground Hog Day). Oops, on to the blog!
Tea: Cherry Blossom
Description: When it comes to making a romantic statement, this alluring white tea simply can’t be beat. For starters, it’s packed with big, juicy cherries, said by some to be an aphrodisiac. Hey, it can’t hurt. Plus it’s strewn with pretty pink rose blossoms – a sure-fire sign of love, friendship and affection. But the real key to their heart? Its delicately bright and fruity taste. Just one sip and they’ll be saying “I do!”
Ingredients: White tea, green tea, cherries, coconut chips, rosebuds, natural and artificial cherry flavouring
Brooke: My mom quite liked this one, she said it has “a sweet” and she “likes the sweet”. The giant rosehip in the loose leaf worried her but she loved the cherry taste that gives it its name.
Stacey: My mom said that the smell of cherry blossoms filled the house this morning. She said it reminded her of those cherry chocolates with cream in the middle and it brought her back to her childhood. 🙂
Brooke: We seriously are out of a job when our friends and family review these teas better than we do. How adorable! Let’s drink!
Brooke: Mmmm! Rosey. I never thought I wanted something to taste like a rose, but this is lovely!
Twitter was abuzz with this floral brew, too:
