Four teas in one day?! Technically 5, really, as I have some Bangkok cold brewing in the fridge. This is what happens when I am left to my own devices, tea overload!
I must have tried this tea before as it was in my cupboard, but I think I just mixed a pinch in my Den’s genmaicha to brighten up a 5th infusion. I don’t remember how it tasted though, so apparently it didn’t make much of an impression. Probably because I only brewed it for 30 seconds, not really enough time to bring out the flavors added to this blend. Brewed at 2 minutes, it’s heaven! The cherry is tart and not at all artificial, there’s a hint of creamy tanginess from the cheesecake, and the toasted rice mimics the crust quite nicely! All these flavors don’t overpower the base at all, there’s a buttery smoothness from the green. This is just the perfect tea if you want something sweet but not overpowering: it’s very dessert-y but also light and airy. I’m pleasantly surprised that this is such a delicate tea! I wish they’d add this to the permanent collection, because it’s something I’d like to indulge in often but I find myself hoarding my stash.
