550 Tasting Notes
I’ve liked the strawberry teas of theirs I’ve tried, and I’ve liked the chocolate teas. So I was glad to try them both together. This tea smells awesome… like these strawberry chocolate candies I get from the Japanese market. There is a nice, creamy chocolatey flavour, which pairs really well with the sweet berry.
Wish I could try their other flavoured puer, but this one is really good.
Flavors: Chocolate, Strawberry
This is my favourite of the teas I tried at the Lupicia store today. There is a nice floral and berry scent. That is also what I get in the flavour, with some notes of creamy vanilla. While I really liked this tea, I feel it would be more suited for the Spring months.
Flavors: Berry, Creamy, Rose, Vanilla
I was able to visit a store again! :) The clerk was very nice. She made me a sample of this tea. This is French for ‘Fruit Tea’, which is a really good name. This is certainly a fruity too. Scent- I get mostly lychee, and some strawberry. Flavour- It is sweet, with strong notes of lychee, the strawberry and peach flavours are more subtle.
Flavors: Fruity, Lychee, Peach, Strawberry, Sweet
I, for one, welcome our new Melon Overlords.
The dry uh, leaves smell like a nice, ripe honeydew melon. And brewed, it reminds me of these Japanese gummy candies I really like. There is a sweet, fruity flavour. Lupicia, you’ve convinced me I enjoy melon flavour teas. Which is a accomplishment since I was skeptical. It is also my new fave green rooibos. Thanks to Ost for this.
Flavors: Honey Dew, Honeydew, Melon, Sweet
I’ve not had anything lotus before, and this was part of mini tuocha sampler.
It certainly smells floral. The flavour reminds me a bit of an oolong, it’s even a little creamy. This also part of my exploring shengs. (Better in shorter steep.)
Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Green
Cookies sent me this mini tuocha, but I’m not sure where it hails from.
Rose Ripe Pu’erh-
Scent- Earth, Floral
Flavour- Rose, Sweet
I brewed for about 30 seconds after a couple rinses. The rose flavour comes out nicely, it’s sweet and on the mild side. There is some Earthiness still, but it is mostly floral.
Flavors: Earth, Rose, Sweet
Thanks to Cookies for letting me try this.
I tried make this shorter with my Western mug. Rinse, and brewed for about 45 seconds. My stove clock is digital. It has an interesting scent. It’s both earthy and ricey. Like if I had mushroom and rice soup. That comes out in the flavour too.
Flavors: Earth, Mushrooms, Rice
