Suzi, I picked this tea up at the Santa Clara Lupicia, too, just last week. I bought the tea bags instead of the loose leaf because I was traveling. This is the first time I’ve purchased the Lupicia tea bags and I’m very impressed by them. Great tea bags.
Ok, on to the tea. This is a luscious smelling tea. The wine notes just come out of the bag and grab your nose. No, really, the fragrance of this tea is just fantastic.
Unfortunately, the taste is a bit off for me. There’s a chance I over-steeped, but this tea has a funny bite at the end of the taste that I’m not a huge fan of. I also didn’t sweeten the tea and I think I would like it much more if I added a bit of honey. Overall, I’ll drink this again, but I’ll definitely add sweetener.
