Cherry Marzipan Oolong @adagioteas #teaadventcalendar #adventcalendar2021

Today’s tea from my Tea Advent Calendar is Cherry Marzipan Oolong. I’ve actually tried it once before, several years ago, and I’m really looking forward to it.

It has oolong tea, cinnamon, apple pieces, rose hips, natural wild cherry flavor, natural almond flavor, cherries, and rose petals. When I opened the packet, it smelled like cherry candy, but I could also smell the almond flavor.

I steeped it for 5 minutes in 8 ounces of 212ºF hot water.

It’s actually quite good unsweetened. The oolong is very pleasant, not bitter or too malty, and it compliments the cherry really well. I don’t really taste much almond, though. I tried it with sugar and almond milk, and then I tasted more almond flavor, although I’m not sure if it’s because of the almond milk. I tasted less cherry, though. If I made this again, I’d skip the sugar and almond milk so that I could taste more of the cherry. This was a good tea!
