How does Cherry-Marzipan tea taste?

The flavor of Cherry-Marzipan strikes a beautiful balance between the sweet and the spicy, together providing a rich and satisfying taste experience. With the first sip, the sweet taste of cherries comes forward, followed by the subtle nutty flavor of marzipan. The notes of amaretto add an interesting depth, making the overall taste more complex.

The underlying freshness of green tea and the gentle taste of white tea form a perfect foundation for the sweeter and spicier flavors. Pink pepper and rose petals add a lightly spicy nuance, further enriching the taste of this tea.

The result is a tea that is both intriguing and pleasant, perfect for those looking for a unique tea experience.

How strong is Cherry-Marzipan tea?

Cherry-Marzipan tea is a mild to medium strong tea. The strength can be adjusted to your personal preference by modifying the brewing time.

For a milder taste, we recommend letting the tea steep for 2-3 minutes.

If you're looking for a stronger flavor, you can let the tea steep for 4-5 minutes.

It's important not to let the tea steep for too long to prevent bitter notes from overpowering. We recommend heating the water to a temperature of 80-85°C before pouring it over the tea leaves.

How to Brew Cherry-Marzipan Tea?

Correctly brewing Cherry-Marzipan tea is crucial to fully bring out the rich flavors and aromas. Here are step-by-step instructions to perfectly brew this refined tea:

  1. Water Temperature:

    • It's important to heat the water to the right temperature. For this blend, a temperature of 80-85°C is ideal. Too high a temperature can make the tea bitter, while too low a temperature will not fully release the flavors.
  2. Tea Portion:

    • Use about a teaspoon of loose tea per cup. If you prefer stronger tea, you can add a little extra tea.
  3. Infusion Time:

    • Let the tea steep for 2-3 minutes. A longer infusion time will yield a stronger flavor, but can also lead to a bitter taste if the tea steeps too long.
  4. Teapot or Teacup:

    • Use a teapot or teacup with a spacious infuser to give the tea leaves enough room to expand and release their flavors.
  5. Stirring and Serving:

    • Stir the tea gently before serving to ensure the flavors are evenly distributed. Serve the tea in your favorite cup and enjoy!
  6. Optional – Sweeteners and Milk:

    • Although the Cherry-Marzipan tea is delicious on its own, you can add a sweetener like honey or sugar to taste. A small splash of milk or a milk substitute can also be added to make the tea creamier.
  7. Storage:

    • Store the loose tea in a cool, dry place to maintain freshness and flavor for future brews.

By following these instructions, you can enjoy a perfectly brewed cup of Cherry-Marzipan tea every time. It's the perfect way to make a quiet moment on a cold winter day even more enjoyable.
