Tea of the Week – Cherry Green

Name: Cherry Green

Type:  Green

Region:  China

Bought At:  Adagio.com

Price:  $2 for a ten cup sample

First Impressions: Two Words – Cough Syrup

Review:

Wow!  I very rarely come across a tea that I have trouble finishing at least one cup, but this pushed it!  It tasted sweet, but was more like cough syrup than anything, and I HATE cherry cough syrup!  I think it really is the overpowering smell that brings it such a similarity to medicine.  I did think it interesting that they had whole dried cherries in the tea, but that was really the only think that was remotely positive about this.  It gets half a point only becasue I was able to force the rest of the cup down.  In my opinion: stay away!

Side note: If you are one who likes the flavor of cough syrup, you might really enjoy this, but you are weird.

My Rating:

.5 / 5

Tea of the Week – Apricot Green

Name: Apricot Green

Type:  Green

Region:  China

Bought At:  Adagio.com

Price:  $2 for a ten cup sample

First Impressions: Wonderful sweet and fruity smell

Review:

My first review in a loong time, apricot green was really good.  The smell of the leaves and brewed tea are both awesome without being overpowering.  The tea itself was good, a nice sweet hint of apricots on top of a mellow green tea.  It reminded me a lot of one of my all time favorites, citron green.  The biggest difference between this and citron is the apricot flavor was much more subtle, and a little sweeter.  Overall a good tea, and hopefully a good start to blogging again!

Sorry!

I just wanted to take a moment apologize to readers out there who have been waiting so long for a new review!  It’s been a crazy summer and while i have been drinking more tea than ever I haven’t seemed to find any time to blog about it.  I’ll be continuing my once  a week reviews starting today.  I will also try to fit in some back-dated reviews of the teas I drank this summer when I can fit them in.  Anyways, thanks for reading, look for more soon!

If your interested, part of the reason I didn’t have time to review tea is I was starting a business, check out www.thewebcounts.com for details!
