The combination of almonds and cherries is one of Europe’s best loved flavor combinations. In the Ukraine, cherries are added as a filling to almond pastries. In the more northerly Scandinavian countries, almonds and cherries make up one of the most popular varieties of muesli, which is often eaten as a breakfast cereal or baked into delicious and hearty bread. In Germany, cherry almond cheesecake has long been a favorite.
This blended tea based on our high grown Ceylon, and true to its European roots, is a real treat. The flavor profile of freshly plucked cherries adds a pleasant sweetness to the nutty character of almond and the astringency of the tea. This is one of our favorite dessert teas. Brew a pot, pour a cup, and remember the old country!
