I don’t know if anyone has really noticed, but I have begun waiting at least three weeks after a tea has been released from 52Teas before trying it. Back when I was blending teas, I learned that when flavoring teas, the tea that I flavor today will taste different three weeks from today. The flavoring oils need time to absorb into the tea leaves and they need to mingle with the tea leaves and develop.

This is the only explanation I can come up with for the fact that the other reviews on this tea are stating that they can’t taste the cherry and cheesecake. Because I can taste them… and this is AWESOME. It tastes so good that I’m on my third cup right now.

The cherry is soft but authentic. It tastes like sweetened, glazed cherries but fortunately not like cherry cough drops. (Not that I dislike cherry cough drops, when I need a cough drop that’s the kind I reach for, but, I’d rather not have it in my tea). The cheesecake flavor is tangy and I can even taste the crust. It works. It all works so well together. YUM yum YUMMY!

That is very interesting, I didn’t know flavoring could work like that! :)

What a great idea Liberteas, thank you!! I will do the same for SURE.
I had this one as a sample, so I thought it tasted amazing as well! It was def aged around 3 weeks so I bet this will work with my pumpkin cheesecake one too >_> Thank you for your wisdom!!

Good to know about the flavorings. I’ll try my pumpkin cheesecake like this, too!

I haven’t had this in quite a while, I’ll have to give it another go and see if the flavors have developed.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
