Yummy! I’m really glad I got to try this tea. For those of you who aren’t subscribed to the Lupicia newsletter, you should definitely do so! It’s great to try their tea of the month free every month. (Speaking of which, I’m going to need to place an order with them soon, as I think my subscription will expire around Christmastime)

I saw a review today that described the flavor of this tea as very ‘green-apple’ like. And I am getting that too. But I do taste kiwi as well as a hint of a citrus-y tone that is sort of orange-y… it is a sweet citrus note.

This is a very forgiving tea as I started it brewing and then walked away to another room where I was unable to hear my timer… so it definitely over-steeped a bit. But I can’t taste any bitterness to this tea. It is really tasty. I like this one a lot!

Thanks for suggestion on subscribing to Lupicia Teas. Site is very nice and pricing most reasonable it seems. Lots of information as well for those learning tea lexicon’s brewing methods.

The Kiwi drank reminded me of Tea Forte’s Kiwi Ginger sampler; I could only note the Ginger and there was sweetness in the cup.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
