583 Tasting Notes
I got to try this one at the store. (The tea name is French, and I like it.)
Scent- nutty, cocoa. Flavour- creamy, chocolate, a nice nuttiness. Kinda reminds of Nutella, but a chestnut version. It also reminds me of this really good chestnut/chocolate torte I made in a baking class. Very good, and much better on the hot side.
Flavors: Chestnut, Chocolate, Cocoa, Creamy, Nutty
This is the first time I ever tried a tea like this, so I’m not sure if I made it correctly. It smells both like leaves and earth, and light and herby. The flavour is smooth, and mild, but seems like it could have been richer if I brewed it a little longer.
Overall, good. Thanks to Teavivre for letting me try this.
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
