drank Cherry Marzipan by Tea Forte

Mmm… tasty tea! I totally oversteeped this one. It was very astringent. I’m sure that if I had done a proper job, it would be way tastier. The cherry flavor is strong and a lot like dried cherries. The marzipan flavor is a bit weaker but still very present and very tasty! The green tea is crisp and grassy. Very nice.

I usually don’t do a second steep on bagged teas, but I did with this one and it was very pleasant. The green tea flavor is all but gone, but the cherry marzipan flavor is still going strong. Yum!

OVerall, this tea reminds me of cherry cordial candies. I always thought they were too sweet, but now I can indulge in the flavor without all the sugar. Nice!

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
