drank Goji Berry x Lapsang by DuvalTea
1114 tasting notes

My first of the teas sent to me (free) from DuvalTea from their sadly unsuccessful Indiegogo campaign. Thank you again!

Wolfberry? Wolfberry. Okay, let me look that up. Oh, see… much more interesting to list that Goji berry, or Goji plant – which is what wolfberry is. The article I read also likens the flavor to “sweet liquorice”, which, I guess I understand? I find this tea a bit sweeter in a fruity way than licorice itself, with a bit of soapy in there for good measure. It’s also surprisingly creamy, and the base is a lovely compliment. I’m laughing as I type this, because this may be the first time I’ve ever said that about a Lapsang. In fact, I get zero smokiness out of this, which I normally associate with Lapsang. Booyah!

If it weren’t for the soapy taste, I’d likely re-order this again. As this was the perfect amount for one cup, this is also a sipdown.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
