Four teas in one day?! Technically 5, really, as I have some Bangkok cold brewing in the fridge. This is what happens when I am left to my own devices, tea overload!

I must have tried this tea before as it was in my cupboard, but I think I just mixed a pinch in my Den’s genmaicha to brighten up a 5th infusion. I don’t remember how it tasted though, so apparently it didn’t make much of an impression. Probably because I only brewed it for 30 seconds, not really enough time to bring out the flavors added to this blend. Brewed at 2 minutes, it’s heaven! The cherry is tart and not at all artificial, there’s a hint of creamy tanginess from the cheesecake, and the toasted rice mimics the crust quite nicely! All these flavors don’t overpower the base at all, there’s a buttery smoothness from the green. This is just the perfect tea if you want something sweet but not overpowering: it’s very dessert-y but also light and airy. I’m pleasantly surprised that this is such a delicate tea! I wish they’d add this to the permanent collection, because it’s something I’d like to indulge in often but I find myself hoarding my stash.

It’s SO good, way too good to be limited. I feel that way about a lot of the 52tea blends though!

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
