I normally like Teavana's fruit-flavored blends, but this one had an overpoweringly artificial-seeming cherry quality to it. I liked the rose, and I liked the flavor imparted by the base tea (which was much folder than typical for white tea, yet still greener in character and less like the darker while teas like shou mei).

But there was just too much of the cherry aroma (or other fruity aromas) for me to really enjoy this tea...it bowled over the other characteristics, and I found I was not able to fully appreciate the white tea or the rose because it was pushed into the background.

Add to the mix the extremely steep price tag on this one, and I would not recommend it. A lot of Teavana's other teas are less than half the price of this one, and in my opinion, much better executed. If I'm going to pay this high a price for a tea, I want it to either be a pure tea, or to be artfully blended...it seems puzzling to me that Teavana would put such an extreme amount of flavoring into a tea that is priced so high.
