I was given a teabag of this by one of my co-workers. It’s pretty good, very floral in flavor and it’s kind of nutty to me. I like it but I don’t think I would buy it for myself.
24 Tasting Notes
Another tea that my coworker brought back from NY! I love chai and I LOVE chocolate so, as you can tell i was a bit excited to try this tea.
The aroma is heavenly, the spices and the yummy chocolate smell makes me want to eat it lol This tea is amazing! It has a nice clean flavour. I get a nice taste of cardamon which compliments the chocolate quite nicely. I can’t wait to try it with milk… will update once I’ve tried it that way too!
This is a great tea! I love grapes so of course I was drawen in immediately. It has a wonderful grape aroma that reminds me of the Japanese grape flavored candies :D The taste is just as awesome! The green tea and the sweetness of the grape blend nicely, each not overpowering the other. It’s extremely yummy XD
Another flavoured puer I was very happy to try!
As soon as I opend the package the sweet smell of cinnamon met my nose and made me want to brew it that much faster!
I love that LUPICIA uses cinnamon that is more on the sweet side than the spicey side. The sweetness of the cinnamon really makes it like a cookie. Totally reminds me of a snickerdoodle! And the puer tea base isn’t that strong, earthy puer flavour that the majority of them have! It is def. a very good tea to have after a meal or infront of a fireplace on a cold rainy day!
When my coworker came back from New York she brought a few teas from 52 teas with her and said i could try some :D After having another citrusy tea this morning, it seemed good to try another one!
Right when i opened the package the aroma of the lemon and citrus hit me. It reminded me of my grandmas homemade lemonade. I also picked up a scent i didn’t recognize and i am still assuming it is the Guayusa. Upon looking at the leaves more closely, and besides noticing the leaves look extremely dark, i was able to pick out lemon verbena, lemongrass, and lemon myrtle two of which being some of my favorite herbs.
When i began to steep it i decided i would let it do so for about 5 mins and see what happened. After checking up on it at 2 mins i nearly screamed because it was so dark and i was afraid i overbrewed it.
The taste is wonderful tho! It has all the wonderful citrus notes and the lemon verbena really ties the flavors together I think. The first cup was a little lacking in flavor only because my silly almost heart attack, but the second cup tastes amazing! Having never tried Guayusa before, I like it alot. It def compliments the herbs and enhances the flavors for a great taste and mouth feel.
No notes yet.
This was a greta way to start my morning! I wasn’t really feeling like having anything too strongly caffienated for whatever reason and remembered last week i picked this up while shopping.
A refreshing taste of mandarin orange with the smooth honeybush was wonderful! I really like how each flavor really compliments one another. Even without caffiene, it woke me up and got me ready for work! It’s very very yummy :)
My coworker brought this back from New York after visiting the store out there and was very excited to share this teas with me.
The tea smells really like an apple cider base which drew me in immediately. I liked the fact that there is rose hip in there since it adds a nice tart flavour to balance out the the sweetness of the apple. The ginger is a nice prominate flavor but is not overpowering. Though the smell drew me in, the taste fell a little short of what i was hoping for. I don’t think that I would drink it as a plain tea again but I would like to use it as a cider base.
Since it’s cold and rainy i figured since i’m at work maybe something roasty could help me relax and stay warm as though i was at home. I picked this tea out of the selection and was pleasantly happy that i did.
Once you open the package your senses are welcomed by the sweet aroma of apricot as well as the roasty scent of the tea. After brewing, the mellow apricot flavour and wonderful roastiness sent me back home in sitting in front of the fire place :D This is a great tea! The houji cha flavour is very pleasant. i think i may have to try this as iced tea some time :)
This tea is awesome! It has a great balance of flavors of the chocolate/strawberry and puer. I love how this tea doesnt have that distinct puer flavor and that additional flavors can come through. I like the deep chocolate flavor and the sweet strawberry finish to it. This is a great tea :)
Just finished my first cup of this tea and it was yummy. I like that its a Rooibos tea because i love the flavour of rooibos! The pomegranate flavour isnt as strong as i thought it would be but it is very plesant and the vanilla finish is awesome! loooove this tea!
I really like this tea because it is a very smooth plain black tea. I had it with my pancakes this morning and it complimented it very well. :D
Never having Lady Grey before, when i saw this at Safeway this morning shopping i couldn’t resist pulling it off the shelf with a big grin on my face! Loads of people have been telling me to try this tea so why not let today be the day!
It smells great! Not as string as an Early Grey would, but it is a plesant light aroma. The flavor reflects the aroma very well. The citrus notes in this tea are very nice and subtle and not overpowering as could be the case with some Earl Greys. This is a nice breakfast tea to have with some toast and jam, yum!
One of Lupicia’s newest teas, Sunny Fruits Puer is an awesome tea! I was a little skeptical of it because I seriously dislike puer. On the few occassions that i have had the pleasure of drinking it i have usually felt ill afterwards BUT NOT THE CASE WITH THIS TEA!
The aroma is fruity with the hints of citrus and an array tropical fruits! The aroma still lingers quite strong even after you brew it! The taste is a wnderful tropical fruity taste with a sweet afternot of citrus! It doesnt even taste like puer at all!
I highly recommend this tea!
I got this from my god mother as a Christmas present two years ago and haven’t opened it until now since I have sooo much tea lol
I am not too big of a fan of peppermint (I prefer spearmint) But this tea is very relaxing and has a very nice light peppermint flavor, with a sweet after taste.
I think I might have to buy more of this for work since doing so now I am relaxed at my desk XD
Again my co-worker spoiled us with bringing in this tea! The smell is sweet like fresh cherries but it also kind of reminded me of those strawberry sour straws, which is ok in my book. This teas flavor is very good and it matched the smell perfectly! The tea holds its sweetness until the very last drop and it makes you want another cup asap.
Really really really enjoyed this tea! I absolutely love Black Currants so when my co-worker brought this tea to work i couldnt resist! The tin it came in smells amazing and i couldnt wait the 3 mins while it brewed. When i was finally able to take my first sip, i felt like i was in heaven! The flavor did not quite match up to the sweetness of the smell but it was still a wonderful taste. It has no astrigency even after it cools down a bit which is lovely! This is a spectacular tea and i hope all who drink it love it as much as i did!
I really don’t like smokey teas, and i never have, but something possesed me to try this one. Right when the package is opened, the smokey smell attacks your senses. I actually really like how this tea smells, it reminds me of someone bbq-ing outside in their backyard :) The taste can be a bit overwhelming but the after taste is quite delightful! it makes me feel like i just ate some blackened chicken, which made my tummy happy for a little bit until it realized it was being fooled. I think if you’re willing to try a smokey tea try this one first, because other smokey teas wont be as powerful as this one and then you can get a better appreciation for the other ones lol
Something i tried with this tea is using it as a marinade for chicken if you can’t grill it. Brew the tea and bring it down to room temp. Add it to the chicken and what ever other seasoning you’d like and marinade for a day. The chicken absorbed the flavor pretty well! So if you don’t end up liking to drink the tea straight, at least it won’t go to waste :)
Lupicia has a new tea for all you to try; Durian Tea! I have had the unpleasant pleasure of trying the Durian fruit before when someone brought it to work and i still occasionally have nightmares about it :/
So naturally I was a little skeptical to try this tea. Right when you open the package your nose is greeted with the most amazing sweet aroma. Lupicia was able to take that pungent, icky smell out and replace it with the more fruity and sweeter notes that the Durian has. The taste is also awesome. It sends me to a tropical paradise! The Thai green tea i think is a perfect match for this tea since it isn’t harsh on the flavours or doesnt mask them either. The after taste is kind of interesting, to me its kinda like a fruity onion, but with not so much onion, but still pleasent and enjoyable. This tea is also awesome as iced tea, so i recommend you try both ways. If you have had Durian before and actually like it this tea might not be what your looking for. I definetly would recommend this tea to anyone. Don’t knock it until you try it!
This is one of my favorite teas! The earthy aroma of the barley mixes great with the sweetness from the caramel and honey flavouring. when brewed straight it has a similar taste to coffee but not as strong or potent. Add milk to it and it is heaven! The main thing that i love about this tea is since it is a barley tea it doesn’t have caffeine so i can drink it anytime during the day. I can also give it to my little brother and my baby cousins too. I recommend this to anyone and everyone!
I am a huge Tiramisu person! So when i saw this tea online i immediately went to my local Teavana to try it out. The aroma smells heavenly! But when i took my first sip i was a bit disappointed. I had expected a fuller flavour from it. Maybe i’m spoiled by some other tea companies. It was,however, a very enjoyable tea. I did like drinking it throughout the night, switching from drinking it straight to drinking it with milk. The tea seems to have a fuller body when i added milk to it, which i loved! I recommend this tea! It is a tasty treat and great in the place of a fattening dessert! lol
This tea is not one of my favourites from Lupicia. The oolong base is a bit overpowering and the ginger is almost non-exsistent. I can smell the ginger but i can’t really taste it. I’ve tried mixing fresh ginger with the tea and that helps make it more gingery for me, but i don’t like having to put that much effort into making a tea taste good, since it’s supposed to taste like ginger in the first place.
I love this tea! I am not to partial to smokey teas but this one has a medium smokey base and the Chinese logan fruit blends very nicely with the Bergamont flavour. During the summer, i love making this tea into a tea spritzer or soda. It’s an interesting taste but also very good! I recommend this tea for Earl Grey lovers as well as smokey tea people! If you’re neither i still urge you to try it!
I like this tea because it has the awesome sweet flavour of cinnamon (which i’m not too much of a fan of only because it can be over used in products). The cinnamon flavoured is nicely balanced with the black tea based. The only sad thing is that i can’t used the same teabag twice D: I recommend it for any cinnamon lovers out there. :)
