drank Rum Raisin by Lupicia

At the request of another Steepster, I am trying this blend for the first time. I ordered it a while ago, but, haven’t gotten around to trying it until now.

I tried it first without any milk but I think maybe I used a little too much leaf when I steeped it because it was quite strong and needed the milk addition. With the milk, it is delicious. Creamy and smooth.

But before I rate it numerically, I’ll try it with a little less leaf and without addition to see how it fairs.

I have to agree with TeaEqualsBliss about this one, it does remind me of the powder-dry gum that used to be packaged with baseball cards (well, in my case, I collected the Wacky Packages instead of baseball cards, but you still got a stick of that dry gum inside).

It doesn’t really possess any notes that taste distinctively like “tropical” to me. It’s not bad tasting though… it’s just a bit different than I was expecting… and once I get past that, I find that it’s an enjoyable cup.

We’re having a late lunch (I made stir fry) and I decided to brew some of this to enjoy with my lunch… delightful as always! I love this tea. The flavor is rich and buttery (almost creamy) and smooth. Sweet!!! The floral notes are enchanting. Very nice – I like how well it is pairing with my lunch today.

Backlogging from earlier today – I had some of this iced. It makes a very good iced tea, but I think I prefer this one hot.

Backlogging from this morning – this was my first cuppa… while I do wish that the chocolate notes were a bit stronger (more chocolate = more yum), this is a very tasty tea.

I enjoyed a cup of this with the birthday cookies I made for the birthday party (my daughter requested cookies – her favorite peanut butter blossoms – instead of a cake for her party)… and it is so good with dessert! Then again, it’s good instead of dessert.

Still my favorite… although I think that the chocolate malt honeybush may give it a run for it’s money.

My first cup of the day! Today has been a really busy day… My youngest daughter is having her birthday party (sleep over!) tonight, and I’ve been busily preparing, decorating, baking,

I’ve been drinking this all afternoon – iced – and it’s been delicious. It’s even better iced than it is as a latte! YUMMY!

The flavor here is sweet and tasty. The black tea base is good, and the Lychee adds a delicious taste to this cup.

Two Oolongs in one day? Yay!

OK… this is totally yum. Like YUMMMMMM!

This has a very lovely honey-esque note to it, sweet, with a roasty nutty taste too. A very light buttery touch, and a very pleasant floral note.

This is why I love Oolongs!

No other teas can match their complexity, in my opinion… such a unique depth of flavor, rich mouthfeel, it’s like drinking liquid gold.


Is this a lighter or darker oolong?


It’s a light roast. So it’s not quite as green as a light Oolong, but it certainly is not as dark as a dark Oolong… I would consider it more of a medium-light Oolong.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
