I decided on this cup to take for my first full time day in my new position… (the current business manager is still there to show me the ropes HOWEVER she was sick today) I was glad to have a good tea to get me through my morning of flying solo on my first fulltime day! I rocked it! :) Bring on tomorrow!
As following my zabaglione teas last night, I steeped this up and added a splash of cream and a few rock sugar crystals.
The apricot flavor is nice and strong in this, a bit of tangy chewy cheesecake flavor, probably the most cheesecake flavor I’ve noticed in any of the cheesecake blends thus far. I am really enjoying how the flavors mesh together. Excellent tea!
Oh YUM! I’ve tried several of the cheesecake flavored teas from 52Teas, but this one may just be the best one!
The apricot is sweet and juicy, the cheesecake flavor is tangy. The black tea base is brisk and delicious. A very nicely balanced cup of tea that I am really loving. YUMMMMM!
Marigold petals and apricot pieces added to a splended black tea make for a nice looking assortment in the pouch this tea came in. The dry aroma is sweet and very creamy.
This tea brews a beautiful yellow-caramel liquor which effuses a subdued fruity and creamy aroma. I think I was expecting something stronger, but this was nice.
From the brew comes a light flavor profile containing the lightest of floral notes and fruit tones. You can clearly taste the apricot and the marigold petals comes through rather nicely in the finish and hold through the tail.
Brewed properly this blend has very little astringency and only the slightest hints of bitterness on the tongue.
As we know, I enjoy flavored black teas, I very much enjoy NY style cheese cake, but apricots I have no opinion on, I could love them or hate them. This was a smooth black tea, you can definitely taste the apricots, which I’m afraid made it a little bit too bitter for me. Unfortunately I did not get the cheesecake taste. Tried it hot and with some sugar, but might have been better (more cheesecake-like flavor) with milk and or as the 52teas suggests a latte.
