This tea tasted quite familiar; I’m not sure which tea it is reminding me of? It could be the maple houjicha I had the other day, but I don’t think so? A mystery. I didn’t taste much cheesecake, mostly maple and roasted oolong.

“This tea is what I had always hoped DavidsTea’s Maple Syrup Oolong tasted like. The maple flavor is distinct without being too intense, and there’s a bit of creaminess from cheesecake flavor.” Read full tasting note
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!

So I’m back. For today at least. I hadn’t had a proper cuppa in weeks and tonight I was like “You know what. It’s Tea Time Thursday!” So thus, here we are.
Without any sweetener, this tastes like a leafy oolong with a hint of maple. With the additional a single splenda however, it now tastes like a lovely pancake breakfast. However, on top of that maple pancake flavor is a bit of bitey-ness not present in other pancake blends. I like it a lot and I sort of wish I had more of this. It’s different.
Overall, I think this is a tasty maple blend. I wouldn’t necessarily say it tastes like cheesecake, but it isn’t a straight maple flavor either. It’s definitely tasty though. I recommend.
