Thanks to Cameron B for this sample. It smells so awesome, malty cocoa. Not sure why, but I get a lot of Smores in the flavour. Very good. I’m really liking their black teas.
After having the black blends, I like this one even more.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Graham Cracker, Malt
The nice people at Lupicia gave me this sample to try when I visited last week. It smells really nice, kinda like a snickerdoodle. There is a flavour of cookie as well- sweet, buttery, and a bit of spice. This tea makes want to bake and/or get more.
Flavors: Butter, Cookie, Spices, Sweet
This was one of the teas waiting for me when I came back from trying tea in SF Chinatown. Since I still don’t have a gaiwan, I brewed this in the Western electric kettle method.There is a kinda malty cocoa scent in both the dry leaves and the brew. The chocolate comes out more in the flavour. Went well with Ghiradelli minis.
Tasting note number 350. Exciting, isn’t it? The nice people at Lupicia brewed me a sample after I told them it was so recommended to me.
The dry leaves smelled so good. Very fresh and like I was going to pick out melons in the farmers market. I got slightly more honey dew. When brewed the green oolong came out more. It went well with the melon flavour. Different, but I’ll likely get this if I ever go a Lupicia store again, or maybe order online next summer.
Flavors: Cantaloupe, Green, Honeydew, Melon
