I love cheesecake. Before I moved in with my current boyfriend and had our daughter I actually lived right across from The Cheesecake Factory, and let me tell you I was there after work getting to-go cheesecake more often than i’ll ever admit! Classic cheesecake is plain with a strawberry sauce, and while I do usually go towards the more “wild” flavors like Oreo, key lime, or anything peanut buttery, I do love me a good ‘ol slice of classic strawberry cheesecake! Unfortunately, I no longer live close to a Cheesecake Factory restaurant so the next best thing to satisfy my sweet-tooth would obviously be tea! When I saw this one on The NecessiTEA’s website, I knew I had to try it!
I really enjoy strawberries in tea. I think that they add a nice fresh, crisp, sweet, and sometimes tart flavor that isn’t overly so. The smell of this blend is very much fresh strawberries. It is a black tea, and as I sip I kind of wish that it was green tea instead. I think that the flavors here would have been a lot better with a green tea base. Other than that, I am enjoying the cup. The flavors here are predominantly black tea and strawberries with a hint of cheesecake after the sip is gone. Like I said, I think I would enjoy this more as a green tea, but it still is a nicely done dessert blend. If you are looking for a tea to satisfy your sweet-tooth, this would be a good option!
Here’s the scoop!
