I like cheesecake. It’s a tasty treat from time to time. I also like apricots. They’re a nice dry stone fruit. And I like black teas. What’s not to like about this Apricot Cheesecake black tea blend from 52teas?

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.
If you like cheesecake, apricots, peaches and/or lighter Chinese black tea this brew could be for you. Also, try this with milk for a latte style as recommended by Frank from 52teas. You won’t regret it. It turns out very nicely.
