From Twinings

Inspired by the English favourite Cherry Bakewell.

There’s something sweet and comforting about this green tea.

The almondy cherry taste is a delicately softened with smooth vanilla flavour to create a delicious, indulgent green tea blend.

mmmm this is a delicious and true-to-the-name dessert tea.

The green tea is nice and buttery. I forgot about the teabag and steeped it 3.5-4 minutes, which turned the green a bit astringent. It isn’t bitter or astringent when resteeped for the recommended 2 minutes.

I get lots of overripe cherry, vanilla, marzipan, shortbread, almond, butter. Also some notes of brown sugar, cherry blossom/something delicate and floral, peach, and pastry. I would have preferred less almond/marzipan (not a fan of almonds or marzipan), but this is excellent hot and cold (let the tea chill for the second steep). I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a box of this is I made a future Twinings order (or found it in stores).

TL;DR Everything you could want and more, really good hot and iced

Tastes like cherry candy with a hint of almond extract. It’s okay. Definitely not my favorite of the Indulgence blends, though—that honor still goes to the salted caramel green.

Finally got around to trying this one at work today. I let the water cool to around 175 degrees before I added the bag, because it’s a green tea and Twinings’ bagged greens in particular seem very prone to scorching. I gave it approximately 2 minutes, after which the liquor is a medium green-brown.

I expected a degree of bitterness, and so I was pleasantly surprised to find none. There’s a sweet candy cherry flavour that’s maybe a touch reminiscent of cough medicine, rescued by a background note of almond/frangipane that makes this much more reminiscent of a dessert. There’s even a butteriness to the green tea that suggests pastry. The best thing by far, though, is the distinctive flavour of glace icing. Combined with the cherry, almond and pastry notes, it makes for a pretty delicious cup! I rarely commend bagged teas, but this one’s worth the hype. I’d repurchase this for fuss-free spring/summer drinking. It’s a sweet, desserty treat.

Sipdown (139)!

Thank you for the sample Scheherazade!

Not entirely sure what a “bakewell” is? Based on the flavour, I’m definitely thinking some sort of pastry? Anywho, I drank this one as a commute tea on the way to work; from the moment I opened up the teabag wrapper this smelled really surprisingly amazing! Cherry pie filling, essentially…

Tasting Notes:
- "Cherry Filling/7-11 Cherry Pastry flavour
- Also a bit of a pudding/custard taste?
- Oddly makes me think of Banana Cream Pie
- Vegetal finish
- Weirdly satisfying?

The banana notes perplexed me quite a lot; not so sure where that was coming from at all. But overall I was delightfully surprised by this one. I’d totally drink it again.
