drank King of Fruits by Lupicia
24 tasting notes

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!

I am a tea lover like the rest of you. I am in my 20’s and have been drinking tea since I was in diapers thanks to my wonderful grandma. Though the she only drank Lipton Tea, i have broadened my horizons to other tea companies, and have found a few that i truely love.

I work for a tea company, so i get to be around and work with some thing i love alot. i see each and every tea for being it’s own creation and experience.
