      I wanted to love this tea, but couldn't get past the bitter taste. I asked a friend to try it, as I knew the flavor/smell reminded me of something - she nailed it....children's tylenol. I had to throw it out, I couldn't even tolerate the smell in my cupboard.

        Comments about Teavana Snow Geisha® White Tea:

        To me this tastes just like the cherry Luden's cough drops. I don't quite get the cough syrup flavor but I can see where they're coming from. It tastes ok initially but has a bitter aftertaste. I think in my case, I don't like the cranberries. I'm not a fan of cranberries but I can't be certain. Luckily I only got a cup of this so I wasn't out a ton of money. I can't recommend this one.

        I first tried this tea when I went to Teavana and they had it out as a sample. The tea was brewed hot and mixed with the rooibos tropica. Oh man was it good. This was the tea that got me into hot teas. I make this by brewing boiling water, and adding five ice cubes in my perfect tea maker. Then I use three teaspoons of leaves and three teaspoons of rock sugar. Very delicious(:

        The first time I smelled this tea I fell in love. I was completely taken aback by the bitterness my first taste brought. I thought maybe I had steeped it too long accidentally so I tried again but alas it's just how this tea is. I love it, though. The smell and taste of cherries is delightful. I've found that this tea might be my go-to iced tea because it is so much less bitter and soo yummy that way!

          This is the only tea I've ever returned. I tried to like it, but just couldn't. When my daughter told me that it tasted like chap stick, I thought she was exaggerating. She wasn't.

            This tea was on my list to try. Cherries are my favorite fruit. It smelled amazing in the tin. It was AWLFUL!! Bitter with a bad aftertaste. I was very unsatisfied with this tea.

            I am an AVID Teavanna drinker and I love most all of the products. I spend good money here, regularly and I hate to say it, but you should know that this tea is absolutely HORRIBLE! Unless you want tea that tastes like strong cough syrup. It's $14, so I thought it was worth letting you guys know! There is no hope for this one!!

            I smelled this in the store after remembering that it had been on my list for a while. I adore cherries, and I usually blend my own cherry white tea. It smelled so delightful in the tin that I decided to buy some. I brewed it up at home with some of my own dried cherries added, which was really nice. It tastes sweet and light, with just the right amount of fruit and tea flavor. I was pleasantly surprised by it. It's really enjoyable hot, but it is amazing poured over ice. It's so refreshing in the hot weather.

                I really enjoy white teas and this one seems promising from the aroma. Do not be fooled! You cannot get around the medicinal cherry cough syrup flavor of this tea. I have an automatic Breville tea maker, so I know my time and brewing temperatures are precise.

                  Recommended by a friend and I am indebted to her still for introducing me to this tea. The name intrigued me and smell sold me and the taste won my soul. First few times I tried it hot it was great but it got better when I tried it cold. I Love to mix it with Sakura Allure that makes the most wonderful soothing tea. My Advice Drink it cold and drink it lots.
