Oh man, this is one delicious tea. This is another one I wasn’t sure about but it’s a seasonal blend so I wanted to snag it before it’s gone. Chestnut is kind of a finnicky flavor, but once again Lupicia has nailed it.

It actually smells heavily of caramel. It’s like caramel-covered chestnuts! Sweet, dense, and delicious. It is a really nostalgic taste, it reminds me of childhood. The green base goes perfectly and keeps it from being too heavy or sweet. It’s like airy holiday treats in a glass! I am seriously so in love with this tea. It also stands up to tons of infusions: I’ve done one hot brew and two cold brews with the same leaves!

I really can’t recommend Lupicia enough! If you like well-done fruit flavors they’re totally amazing.

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
