Tea of the Week for December 30. 2019!
Retro Monday Reblend!
For those who have been with 52Teas for a while, you may already notice a slight change from the original here - the original Maple Cheesecake was a TieGuanYin and it was noted in the name of tea: Maple Cheesecake TieGuanYin. Well, instead of using a greener, floral TieGuanYin this time around, I used a slightly toasty, fruity Qilan Oolong. And let me tell you: I LOVE this! The warmer notes from the Qilan add so much to the maple & cheesecake notes of this blend.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I loved the original too. I loved the way the creaminess of the TieGuanYin brought out the creamy notes and textures of the cheesecake. It worked really well together. But I found myself wanting just a little something different this time around and when I received the Qilan in a recent shipment and tested it, I decided that it should be the base for the Maple Cheesecake! And I'm really glad I made that determination because this is absolutely delightful!
And - it's organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen-free!
