I was a little surprised to see this in the line up. Floral teas are really polarizing and for a cherry blossom in particular the tea needs to be either really gentle or delicate so let those delicate florals come through or it’s gotta lean into a more sweet cherry blossom flavour. Like, it just feels too complicated and/or nuanced and gentle to work for a company like IKEA

And, well, it doesn’t work. The white tea base is really choppy and harsh which is definitely a consistent across all of the blends from IKEA that are using Camellia Sinensis. The quality simply just doesn’t seem good. More than that, I’m not really getting cherry blossom. It’s a little floral but in a pretty generic kind of way and definitely feels at odds with this weirdly intense and bitter tasting white tea base.

Sorry but this one gets another pass.

Hmm…I should put some effort into finding an actual cherry blossom tea. The few “cherry blossom” teas I’ve looked at have been just cherry flavored teas, no blossoms to be found. I guess calling it cherry blossom sounds prettier or fancier? I’d rather have delicate florals than weird artificial cherry flavoring, though (but maybe not on the bitter IKEA white tea base).
