Gosh dangit! Same goes for this tea as the new Cashew Turtle. Smells amazing, but tastes only like the base tea. These are nothing like any of the many other 52 teas I own. All of the rest are bold in dessert flavors and knock my socks out of this world. This just tasted like green tea. What the heck? :( This one’s lacking even more in flavor than the Cashew Turtle. :’( I really wanted to love this too!

Edit
I put my remaining pot of this in the refrigerator and I have to say it’s not so bad iced, especially with a bit of raw honey, but according to my taste buds it’s lacking completely in cherry and cheesecake. Doesn’t seem to deliver on the name, but not a bad iced tea.

Preparation

If I remember right, this and cashew turtle are two of the newer 52Teas…you could try setting them aside for a few weeks to flavour up before giving them another shot. It takes so long for my orders to get here that they’ve usually had time for the flavours to mingle.

Or you could put them up for swaps if you really don’t want to leave them sitting around. I have the lemon lime cheesecake and am still broken hearted that i can’t get cheesecake flavour from it. I also really want a slice of cheesecake now… : )

That’s a good idea, let it sort of cure.
All of Frank’s cheesecake flavors seem to have that same reaction. I’ve wondered about it.. I have two of them (Coconut Cheesecake Honeybush and Lemon Lime Cheesecake,) and I’m happy with them. I taste as much cheesecake as I think is possible.. maybe a lot of the perception of the taste of a cheesecake is about the mouthfeel? Because I’ve tried to imagine what the flavor of cheesecake would be like in a flavoring agent and it seems that a lot of what we know as cheesecake would be lost. Maybe. I’m having a hard time explaining what I mean. lol.

Another thing.. all cheesecakes are different. Some tangier, some sweeter, some have different crusts, here’s a good reference of all the different kinds http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheesecake The only cheesecake I’ve ever really enjoyed was the kind that I made, (I love to cook.) They can just be so vastly different. So maybe that makes transforming it into a flavoring agent more complicated?
