Our neighbor came over today with a package of mine that was misplaced in her mailbox. It was teas from Alphakitty, so thank goodness for nice neighbors! I’ve had a headache all day that won’t go away. I just got home from running errands and decided to have another cup of tea before dinner and this one jumped out at me. I’m picky about cherry flavored things, I like maraschino cherries, but I really dislike cherry flavored candy or popsicles. This tea was really light at first, and I didn’t really get many of the flavors. I added a little more tea from my pot that had steeped longer and suddenly there was the toastiness! I can taste a little of the cheesecake flavor in there with the green tea and there is a nice, light maraschino cherry aftertaste that’s not too sweet. Thanks Alphakitty for your wonderful package of teas that came just at the right time! :)

-Dry blend has large flat green tea leaves and toasted rice.
-Dry leaves smell like vegetal green tea. Tea liquor aroma is of green tea with a hint of cherry.
-Tea liquor is a clear bright yellow color.
-Toasty green tea and cheesecake flavor and finish. Faint maraschino cherry aftertaste.
-Best with sweetener.
-Good tea. Toasty flavor with a not-too-sweet finish.

I’d suggest this one iced/cold brewed! That way the cherry really pops.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
