From 52teas

We’ve had a few cheesecake blends over the years, and I’ve heard from a number of customers that the cheesecake is a bit on the subtle side. So I’ve decided to try a cheesecake blend with a lighter tea that might not normally be a good match for cheesecake flavors. (I tend to want to pair our white teas with sweet, fruity notes.) So here is our delicious shou mei white tea, blended with real freeze-dried apricot bits and natural apricot and cheesecake flavors. And it is truly delicious!

Special thanks to Liberteas for a but of this! I LOVED it! A smooth ‘jelly’ or ‘jam’ like Apricot and creamy smooth cheesecake flavor paired with just the perfect amount of white tea! Masterpiece!

I am just over halfway through my bag of this tea. Definitely a winner for me. I really enjoy a cup in the afternoon paired with a savoury snack. This tea doesn’t play well when I have other sweet treats or need something more robust in the morning. I lose the flavour in those scenarios.

On to the flavour. I think the apricot and the white tea mixes so well together. The cheesecake flavour is very light but it still rears its head during the cup. When it does, it makes me all the more happy.

I like this tea; when you open the pouch, you get intense apricot aromas. That intense and pleasant aroma is matched with the flavor of apricots in the cup. The use of white tea was a great idea; I still have some of this and am enjoying it a little at a time.
