I received a sample of this in my December Birchbox, so naturally, the next day, I brewed myself a cup. This tea was my first experience with Tea Forte, although I’d heard of them before.

My reaction upon tearing open the packaging and smelling the teabag probably looked something like this – !!!!!. YUM. A previous reviewer described the scent as a sweet chocolate covered cherry and I find it spot on. In fact, I still have the pouch at my desk a few hours later, and am still sniffing it. It smells THAT good.

Brewed to a nice warm honey color after 4 minutes, and the taste is much milder than I had anticipated, much to my delight. Smooth and gently sweet, but not so much that you can’t taste the hint of green tea underneath, which the almond compliments really nicely IMO. The cherry is definitely noted when I smell the cup, but isn’t an overpowering taste. It’s sweetly subtle, letting you know it’s there without drowning your taste buds.

The aftertaste of this tea is wonderful – light cherry with just a smidge of almond nuttiness.

This is a fantastic tea. I could easily see myself drinking multiple cups of this during my day – my sign of something wonderful. If I can’t find this locally I’ll happily order online.

Coldbrew sipdown! Just under a tsp of leaf with 250 mL

Tastes like cherry and sweet almonds. I happen to dislike almonds/marzipan because it tastes like cyanide and chemicals. If you actually like almonds like everyone else in the universe, then you will probably like this tea. The green base is subtle, but present. It isn’t overly vegetal, it blends sweetness and nuttiness. Overall, this blend is refreshing, sweet, fruity, nutty.

Okay. Again, a bit too artificial for me and Cherry is iffy with Sencha. The marzipan almond flavoring actually goes nicely with the green tea and rooibos since those teas tend to have that kind of nutty taste anyway. Cherry kinda clashes with the almond, but it might be nicer for other people. It is pretty green and probably would be better with fresher leaves.

This happens to be a green tea that I love! I’ve tried this before, and prefer the loose leaf variety. This is a nicely flavored green tea that tastes like cherries (I’ve never actually had the dessert) and almonds. It’s a nice pick me up dessert like tea that you can have any time of day. I like to drink my teas throughout the day, especially after meals.

The flavor is not overpowering but perfect. I only use agave nectar in my teas to sweeten.

I’m a little confused with the prep on this tea. It is green but the instructions say to brew it at boiling for three minutes. I ended up doing 175 in fear of burning this tea. I do get an almond cherry which is nice, but it does seem to lack some depth. I get the rooibos dry mouth at the end. It is not bad. It is missing something to make it an awesome tea, but I couldn’t tell you what it is.

Oh! Oh! Oh! I have a bag of this in the kitchen! I will try mine soon.

The last time I purchased a cherry-flavored green tea, it was called “Sakura Cherry Blossom,” or something to that effect, so the possibility that it might be artificially flavored never even crossed my mind. An artificially flavored JAPANESE tea? was basically my ignorant assumption. It turned out that, despite the use of “Sakura” in the name, the tea had been sourced from other parts and the flavoring was indeed artificial. The big bag sits in my pantry to this day.

Why am I such a stickler for natural flavoring? Well, because aside from vanillin, which is a natural component of vanilla, the other “artificial flavors” used in food stuffs and beverages could literally be n’importe quoi. All bets are off, people. Remember melamine in cat food and toothpaste? Like I was saying.

Fortunately, no such problem with this cherry-flavored green tea blend from Tea Forte: Cherry Marzipan. The name makes it sound as though it’s going to be some sort of über-decadent dessert tea. Far from it, in fact. The cherry flavoring is quite marked on this somewhat bitter but clean green tea. For me, the marzipan facet has more to do with the aroma. I’m not tasting the almond so much as smelling it.

Notwithstanding the decadent-sounding name, this is a fairly clean green Japanese-style tea laced with cherry. It’s pretty good, but the slight bitterness leads me to believe that the instructions given on the filter bag envelope were wrong. “Near boil” is probably too hot for this brew, and I’ll keep the steep to the lower end of the 3-5 minute range next time…

I would never have guessed that this is a rooibos blend. All the better, I suppose.

If I keep drinking these “skin radiance” teas, I should have the most radiant skin around. Or wait: don’t I already, since I drink green and white tea all the time? Isn’t the biggest contributor to skin radiance just plain water? No one can reasonably deny that I am well hydrated.

Unlike my father, this tea keeps it’s promises. The cherry, also unlike my father, is very present. The almond flavour is a great finishing note, the sweet flavour a perfect facsimile of the marzipan icing on the New Year’s Cake me and my mother ate in our little flat on New Year’s, 1986, knowing my father would never came back. We both knew it, we never said it. Words would’ve made it too real.

10.6/10 Would drink again.

I can see where some dislike the bitterness, but I like getting some strong flavor. The cherry is more a scent than a taste.

*Prepared without sweetener.
