drank Goji Berry x Lapsang by DuvalTea
1416 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.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
