Not my favorite but I found that I enjoy it more if I don't make it as strong
I don't know what I was expecting but this reminds me of chocolate covered cherries. Too strong for me. I blend it with traditional green tea or hibiscus leaves to mellow it down 2 parts cherry 1 part plain.
Yummy, almost as good as dessert.
I enjoy the taste of the tart cherries, which makes this tea hearty and satisfying.
This tea is a wonderful way to start your day.
Really strong cherry flavor.
I love this tea in the morning. I make it in my Pugg and enjoy several cups at a time. Very nice flavor.
I do love this cherry almond tea - it is perhaps a teeny bit too 'cherry', I try to make a point of using a bit less tea. Makes delicious iced tea.
I love to drink this at my evenings.
Love all the skin smart teas but this is a favorite! Fruity without being too sweet for my taste! Love the sweet canister!
I was overwhelmed by the taste of this tea! I can see now why there have been such favorable reviews for this flavor. This is definitely one of my favorites that I will order again! I also appreciate the nice canister that it came in.
I love these fruits but this has a funny taste.
Earthy flavor with a hit of cherry.
So many layers, complex
Love the flavor!
This is the 2nd time I ordered this flavor. The name sounds so good, but I forgot that it lacks in flavor.
This Tea has great flavor and is one of my favorites.
wonderful almond flavor
Very good taste and quality.
I really like this when I need strength to go on for the day.
Love, love love this tea! It has been my favorite for a number of years and now my daughter and granddaughter are enjoying it also!
I like think tea but I think it took me several cups to get used to its slightly medicinal taste. I think I would reorder as a fall or winter tea.
I love the smell of this tea. The cherry flavor is mild, but the tea is still a great cup!
this is my favorite tea. smells fruity (like cherry) but does not taste fruity at all.
Very smooth, makes room smell good!
I've been drinking this for a few years, and it's one of my favorites.
This one has grown on me. Little tricky to get the brew time right but worth it. 2 minutes is max for me or it has a bitter taste.
for me! :)
Cherry smell is very strong but the taste is very nice and subtle
Delicious, exiting and delightful to taste.
A very tasty and flavorful tea. The flavor of cherries is very distinct, along with the taste of almonds. Can't wait to order more!
This tea has a good cherry almond flavor that is not too over-powering. Be careful not to steep it too long or it gets a little bitter. Overall a nice tea.
Great tasting and smelling green tea
This was a good cup of tea but I'm not as fond of cherry flavor as other flavors.
I love it, kept this one for myself and it doesn't disappoint.
Will order again.
Nice flavor, i brew it less strong
Delicious aroma, captivating taste.
Love this tea! It's perfect and convenient. This may be my all-time favorite!
I love love love this tea. Drink it virtually every day. Just the right balance of flavor and tea. Try it, you won't be disappointed!
I haven't tried this flavor yet.
The best tea on earth!
I've reordered this tea many times. It is great tasting! I like trying new teas, but this is one of the few I always like to have on hand.
This is good for the eyes. A little sweeter.
I have been religiously drinking this tea since 2013. I have had a cup every morning for 3 years and I'm still not tired of it. And I'm also pretty sure it played a big part in getting rid of my adult acne.
At the close of every fulfilling day, I reward myself with 2-3 precious cups of fresh-brewed Tea Forte. This season, my favorite is this scrumptious "every-wish-fulfilled" Cherry Marzipan. My MD suggests having green tea every day as part of a good health regimen -- but, even if this Cherry Marzipan (almond) weren't GREEN TEA, I'd drink it every day because IT'S DELICIOUS!!!
My sister gave me this and I have loved every cup. I prefer the loose leaf (believe it has better leaves), and just let the leaves settle to the bottom and then pretend to 'read them' ! :) Having a sensitive stomach, am careful about what I drink.... this one, though, is sooo soothing! Love this canister!
Cherry Marzipan is my favorite hot or cold. It is delicate yet robust, just wish it came in tea bag form so we could travel with it!
I fell in love with this tea,.. absolutely delicious.. I loved how I could smell and taste the cherry I was really good .. very smooth flavor.. I will definitely buy it again.
I've been drinking this tea for over 2 years. I have a cup every single morning! Such a wonderful company.
Love this tea!
I drink this tea religiously every day. I can't start my mornings without it. And I'm going on my 3rd year!
Can't find another flavor I like better except for Coconut Mango Colada!
This tea is a great blend of cherry and green tea flavors. The cherry flavor is not too overpowering, which I love. Now I would not recommend this tea as a dessert replacement, but it offers a crisp and delicious treat in the afternoon. I like to enjoy it right after lunch to have just a bit of sweetness.
Bordeaux Cherry Chocolate is my favorite ice cream flavor (at least 650 calories) -- tastes like really good chocolate dipped cherries -- and, so does this fabulous Tea Forte Cherry Marzipan green tea -- and it's GOOD FOR ME!!! I can pass on the ice cream and feel spoiled. I've died and gone to Heaven!!!
Omgoodness, the Cherry Marzipan Green Tea is delicious! Sometimes fruity green teas can be overpowered by the fruit flavor, but this is a perfect blend! The bit of nutty toasted almond puts this tea over the edge...YUM!! I am so excited to try the rest of my Skin-Smart tea flavors :) !
This blend of tea is wonderful if you need something with a slight fruity flavor. I was so surprised when I first tasted this because I am not a fan of most cherry infused teas. I have slowly begun to reach for this tea more often as a way to fight my sugar cravings. If you love the flavor or cherries, green tea, and almonds this is a good one to try.
I was introduced to this tea at the spa where I work. I now buy it in bulk and have a cup every morning. I prefer it without any sweetener, it's delicious!
I was hesitant to purchase this one, but I'm so glad I gave it a try. It's super delicious iced!!! Will be in my flavor rotation for a very long time.
Lots of maraschino cherry on the front end with a sweet, earthy green tea finish. Smells like a burst of maraschino cherries. Very delicate and light overall, but the cherry and marzipan give it almost a cloyingly sweet flavor. If you enjoy the taste of green tea, this can definitely be a dessert tea for when you're craving something sugary.
My wife loves this tea. Be very careful about time and temperature. I use a digital thermometer and set it 10 degrees above the recommended temperature. When I pour the water in the brewing cup, because the cup is cold, if you pour water at 175 it will drop 10 degrees in a matter of seconds, so make the water 10 degrees hotter and then it will brew at the correct temperature. I only brew for 3 minutes.
I can't even begin to say how much I love this tea! The smell sucks you in; the taste gets you to stay! I will never be without this one as long as I live!
This tea is just so satisfying. I'm sipping a cup as I type. I made another 'friend for life' :)
Take it from someone who learned the hard way: more isn't better with this tea. Follow the directions! I was so excited to receive this tea a few weeks ago. Then I tried it. Whoa! I didn't like it at all. However, I learned today that it was my own fault I didn't like it. I usually drink black tea, the blacker the better. So I'm used to using extra tea and steeping it long. The first pot of Cherry Marzipan I made, I heaped 4 teaspoons into the infuser and I let it steep for quite a while. It was bitter! I couldn't taste cherry or marzipan at all. I was ready to chuck it. This morning, I thought I'd follow the directions. I put 4 scant to level teaspoons in the infuser and steeped it for about 3 minutes. What a difference! It is delicious and fragrant. The bitterness is dialed *way* back. The cherry and marzipan shine through the green tea flavor. Some times, it is much smarter to follow the directions than to do what you "always" do!
This has become one of my favorite teas. I work overseas, but was back home in California over the holidays where I was able to purchase it online. I could drink this all day. It's a nice light refreshing tea. I brought this tea back to Asia with me, but alas I have finished my supply.
This tea smells amazing, but it has a bitter taste. I added honey and it didn't get rid of it. It wasn't horrible, but (to me) it certainly wasn't the best. I probably won't order this one again.
"Dessert in a cup" was what made me want to buy this tea. I do not agree with that statement. The tea is okay, but I have had much better. The flavors are weak, and there is definitely an after taste that I can see some people not liking. This is not a tea that I will buy again, but I will drink what I already have at home.
I received this tea for Christmas and as soon as I took a sip, I knew it was my new favorite. This tea seems to have mixed reviews on its flavor. Maybe marzipan is polarizing and you either love it or you hate it; I happen to love it. This tea smells just like marzipan and has a lovely, subtle almond flavor with hints of cherry. Absolutely delicious. I've just ordered more.
I was looking forward to my first flavored teas an absolutely hated this one. It has a weird bitter after-taste. I wish I could get my money back.
Hot this tea is very good. Iced this tea knocks it out of the park! I can't keep enough on hand for my family. The Cherry Marzipan can be a bit strong for me. I added a bit of the Sencha and Cherry Marzipan and created an iced-tea that is wonderful and refreshing. Love it! A new staple at my home!
I was really looking forward to this tea after reading the reviews. The smell is absolutely wonderful but the taste was horrible. I know green tea leaves are more sensitive to burning so I made sure the hot water was not boiling before steeping. Somewhere I read it tasted like dessert in a cup and this was more like dirt in a cup!
I first tried Honey Yuzu, then Lychee Coconut and, most recently, Cherry Marzipan. All are wonderfully flavored teas - light, delicately but distinctively flavored. I wouldn't even try to pick a favorite, all three are heavenly...
i love this one, too
Flavored teas are always so hit or miss. I buy them on a whim, and I usually end up hating them. This one, however, is wonderful. The flavors are delicate, and I'd say it's even drinkable without sugar, but I really like it with about a teaspoon of rock sugar in a cup. I taste the cherry on the front end, then the almonds on the back end. My new favorite dessert tea.
I was not sure of this blend with green tea but it is light and delicate. I will definitely get it again.
The name threw me off as I don't really like marzipan, but the tea is a real winner, went right to the top of my list. Great flavor, nice and light tasting - thank you!
