So this is not at all what I had anticipated… which is actually a positive thing! I was expecting a sweet, amaretto tea (but was hoping it leaned more on the cherry side). However, it’s actually quite lightly flavoured, a mix of cherry and nuttiness, and an absolutely lovely white tea base. It reminds me of Butiki’s blends, which is a high compliment – it’s not in-your-face flavoured, though certainly isn’t bland, but the tea is allowed to shine through quite beautifully.
Now, is it Cherry Bakewell? I haven’t the faintest idea. Cherry Bakewell makes me think of like, cherry dumplings or something (it also makes me think of Bakelite, which makes me think of bakeware, haha. That’s a weird association, for sure.) I’m not sure it tastes anything like that, but it’s cherry and a hint of almond and white tea goodness, which combine to be delicious. I really hope subsequent cups are this good!
