Dragonwater Japanese Cherry Green Tea Review
The Perfect Mix of Cherry and Green Tea
Summary : If you like a cherry flavored tea, well, stop right here and hop on over to the Dragonwater Tea Company (now out of business) and get yourself this delightfully tasting cherry green tea.
Review : If I was to be exiled on a desert island someplace, and was given my choice of the one candy I could have with me, it would likely be an unlimited supply of Wild Cherry Lifesavers. I just love wild cherry! I could live on wild cherry...now too bad their is no nourishment in wild cherry lifesavers. But oh well, you can't have everything.
However, while you may not be able to have everything, you can come awfully close with this great cherry flavored green tea that is put out by the Dragonwater Tea Company (now out of business).
Here is how Dragonwater describes this tea on their website : "Japanese Cherry Tea. Japanese green Sencha tea, cherries, and cherry flavoring. A classic japanese tea. Great iced! "
Well, to put it mildly, my first reaction to this tea was just a whisker short of being erotic. Why? Simple...you pull the top of the bag and you are greeted by the wonderful aroma of...you guess it...wild cherry! This tea really does smell awfully close to a package of wild cherry lifesavers.
With having such a great first reaction to this tea, the 2 minute brewing time was just endless. But well worth it.
Now admittedly, once brewed, this tea doesn't taste like a wild cherry lifesaver. I really didn't expect it to...unless I maybe added a ton of sugar to it. Still, this tea had a very nice and pleasing cherry flavor to it. Yet, the cherry flavor wasn't so strong that it drowned out the nice and delicate flavor of the green tea.
This tea has not bitterness long as you brew it properly. It slides down smoothly. It has a nice, mellow cherry flavor to it. And even when brewed it emits a subdued cherry aroma too.
So in short, I could find no faults with this tea. And neither will you if you like cherry flavored "stuff," including tea. Additionally, this tea really does make a superb "introductory green tea," all the more so if the only green teas you've had so far are those terrible bagged green teas from chinese restaurants!
Recommendation : Yes. Unless you hate green tea in all forms, or can't stand green tea that has "stuff" added to it (you are a happy "tea snob"), then you should like this tea. And if you love cherries, then you will love this tea. This tea is also absolutely perfect for people who are just starting out with green tea, too - as the tea lacks the typical loose-leaf green tea taste. Needless to say, this tea makes a perfect and tasty way to get your healthy antioxidants without having to choke down a tea that you don't like!
