drank Lanikai by Lupicia
19 tasting notes

I had high hopes for this tea after such a wonderful aroma met me upon opening the packet. However, upon steeping for 3 minutes, the aroma had something almost burnt in it. I tasted it without additions and there is a bitterness which seems odd because there is also a nice vanilla scent and little sugar crystals in it. So I went ahead and added a tiny bit of sugar and milk. Bitterness improved with additions, but the Black tea base is not coming through much. Not really sure what to think of this one but may try it iced to see if that helps. This is my second tea I am trying from Lupicias Hawaii collection and so far, it’s 2 for 2 bombed.

I love tea! I started drinking tea in the morning in high school after finding it delightful to put the kettle on first thing and savor that hot cuppa, thanks to my Dutch grandmother. Mostly I drank black and green teas in bags until about 3 years ago when my daughter bought me a steeper from Teavana, making loose tea my favorite. My favorite brands are Harney & Sons, Lupicia, and Stash loose leaf. I would have to say that I am addicted to Harney’s Paris!
Besides drinking several cups of tea per day, I love to hike, do Zumba, knit, read, and dream up trip ideas on my iPad.
