drank Lychee (Lichee) Oolong by Lupicia
1607 tasting notes

Another tea from the Travelling Teabox (I’ll send it out soon, I promise – I’ve just been so busy with school) this one from the mythical Lupicia whose teas, alas, I can’t get ahold of given that they don’t ship north of the border.

The tea smells like lychees, a fruit I’m rather ambivalent about, but at least it lends credence to the tea’s name. It brews up a surprisingly dark cuppa and it smells more like what a dark formosa oolong would smell like. The tea is sweet and fruity, the flavour of the oolong meshing nicely with the lychee. It’s quite nice, I’ll be resteeping the leaves and seeing how that goes.

Preparation

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
