Organic Cherry Sencha Green Tea

compostable-tea-packaging-1.jpg

Our Fair Trade Certified Cherry Sencha organic green tea pairs a blend of sencha-style green teas with the sweet-tart flavor of real cherries. The concentrated fruity aroma gives way to a subtly-tart cherry flavor that is in perfect balance with the green tea in the cup. Like all of our flavored blends, this organic loose tea uses only the highest quality teas, essential oils and botanical ingredients, insuring an excellent cup every time! The organic green tea used as a base for this tea is from the Dazhangshan Tea Garden in the Jiangxi Province of China, where it maintains the region’s 1,200-year reputation as the “golden triangle” of exceptional tea production.

Ingredients: organic Chinese and Indian green teas, organic rosehips, organic calendula petals, organic safflowers and natural cherry flavor

What are Flavored Teas?

Organic Tea with Cherry Flavor

Our delicious flavored teas use the same top-quality organic tea that we offer in our unflavored varieties, but are blended with pieces of real fruit, spices, flowers, and 100% natural flavors. When blending our teas, our goal is to create a cup that balances the taste of the tea with the flavors of the additional ingredients so that neither one overpowers. All of the natural flavors we use are either extracts taken directly from the botanical ingredient, or extracted using 100% GMO-free grain alcohol as a solvent. You can rest assured that none of the flavors used in our blends are synthetically or artificially derived, and do not use artificial preservatives.

Steeping Instructions

cherry-sencha-tea-steeping-instructions.jpg

At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend green and white teas to be steeped for 2 to 3 minutes in water heated to not-quite-boiling, just as bubbles begin to form on the bottom of the pan (approximately 170 to 180 degrees F). For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible. Try not to steep your tea longer than necessary, as you’ll extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves. If you want a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!

Staff Perspectives

    "This makes a beautiful and refreshing iced tea!"

  • Trish

    "When I feel like something sweet, I reach for Cherry Sencha! I love this tea warm or cold. The astringency of the green Sencha is perfectly complimented with the sweet aroma and flavor of cherries."

  • Aubrey

    "We found the cherry flavor is more prominent when this tea is cool verses hot. So, to maximize the cherry essence serve this tea cool or iced."

Health Benefits

Like all true tea, green tea offers many potential health benefits. Research has found that tea (Camellia sinensis) can have many positive effects on human health, including improved cardiovascular function, cancer risk reduction, improved immune function, improved oral health, and help with weight management. Tea is also full of polyphenols, which are a class of antioxidant that help your body maintain homeostasis and balance your stress levels.

Green tea specifically is known for its array of health benefits, which have been supported by a growing number of studies. Green tea research has demonstrated that it may be an effective anticancer agent for breast cancer, lung cancer, kidney cancer and prostate cancer, among others. Studies have shown a link between green tea and weight loss, and the ability to modulate energy metabolism, aid in body fat regulation, and possibly promote preferential loss in abdominal fat. Research has also shown that green tea may increase performance for short term memory tasks, as well as being increasing potency of antibiotics. Other peer-reviewed studies link green tea to healthy skin, help with lowering cholesterol, and regulating diabetes. It’s important to keep in mind that many of these studies monitor subjects who drink several cups of green tea per day.

    Totally Worth It

    Posted by Charlene Molina on 21st Jul 2020

    To begin with, I really enjoyed seeing a beautiful mixture of ingredients when I opened the package up. you can smell the cherry and other ingredients without it being overpowering and it's great as hot or iced tea. When it's enjoyed as hot tea, you can taste more than just the cherry, it's hard to explain but there's a good balance of taste. When it's iced, I feel like the green tea taste comes out a bit more than the cherry. Either way, it's worth giving this tea a try.

    Organic cherry sencha green

    Posted by Barb Vogelpohl on 23rd Apr 2018

    One of my favorites. I got my husband to start drinking tea and he keeps going to this one. Had to buy the bulk size this time. Love the cherry flavor, subtle but very good. I drink all of my tea plain so the flavor is important. I highly recommend.

    Its like armaretto

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Feb 2017

    When I opened this, the first thing I noticed was the aroma! Wow! Hoped for heavier flavor and red coloring like the raspberry green. Smell: Heavy almond and cherry. Flavor: The sencha was prominent with delicate cherry and almond notes. Color: Tradional green. Overall:

    Subtle flavor

    Posted by Derek on 3rd Jan 2017

    As others mentioned. The cherry flavor is very subtle; it lingers in the background in both taste and aroma. Not that this is a bad thing... But the sencha green tea flavor is also subtle as well, at least in my opinion when compared to the unflavored sencha green tea. I like my tea a little more flavorful.

    Unusual combo

    Posted by Yen-Wen on 14th Nov 2016

    I was curious about the taste of cherry and green tea together. I find the experience is a lot more interesting than what I expected! Well, I like cherry flavor, so that is a must if others want to try this one. It's not a subtle cherry flavor to me especially the smell is stronger than the taste actually. I think the green tea part really make the combo work perfectly! It toned down the flavor while drinking it. It's like smelling the sweetness without actually having sugar intake. I like the beautiful combination If you like flavored fruity tea, this one can't be missed!

    Amount of Cherry Flavor Depends on the Drinker

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Oct 2016

    Like others, I didn't find the cherry flavor to be that pronounced, more of a subtle after-tone of cherry than a full burst of flavor with every sip. My mom, however, who tried some, said that she got a "perfect" amount of cherry flavor from the same batch that I'd brewed for myself. Regardless, I'd still recommend it, but the intensity obviously depends on the drinker.

    Very cherry

    Posted by Kara on 17th Jan 2016

    Some other reviewers don't think much of this tea but I do. The cherry flavor is wonderful. A good tea for when you want a fruity flavor.

    So-so

    I did not care for this one only because I don't like cherries. I thought i did when I tried this then found out I do not.

    Cherry is lacking

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Sep 2012

    This tea is very mild. I too wish the cherry was more pronounced. I blend it now with some of my unflavored teas.

    Not Enough Cherry Flavor

    Posted by Lukasz M. on 7th Mar 2012

    I usually don't go for flavored teas. They often come off too artificial to me and in fact often include artificial flavors to enhance or boost certain flavors. I'm a purist at heart, but nonetheless wanted to try this cherry flavored green tea. Overall, it's a decent tea worthy of occasional consumption. I just wish the cherry flavor was more pronounced. It's dull and in the background, masked by some other flavor I can't pinpoint.

    Delicious.

    Posted by Michael on 25th Jan 2012

    I am brand new to avid tea drinking. I have always loved the Chinese Restaurant tea and usually devour the whole pot while eating dinner. I decided to order black tea and this one as well. I'm so glad I tried something out of the ordinary. This smelled like cough syrup at first, but it tasted amazing! I am ordering more and I am going to now try the other flavors as well. It will still be money well spent if they are half as good as this tea.

    Great tea!

    Posted by Susie on 19th Mar 2010

    I just brewed my first pot of this today. It was not what I was expecting...but I really liked it! I had gotten used to the strong fruit flavors of other suppliers' green teas with fruit and had gotten tired of that. This tea is refreshing. The cherry flavor is very subtle. There is a tasty green tea flavor and then a very slightly mellow sweet flavor I cannot describe it but I will be ordering this again! I really liked that the taste of the green tea was not lost by the other flavors. Thanks!
