1594 Tasting Notes
Oh, I’m so glad its a three day weekend. Its gonna be fantastic to not have to go into the office tomorrow morning.
I’m not above drinking a black tea in the evening, especially when it can be a lazy morning the next day.
I love Lupicia, and I love this tea, but its a bit of a mystery why its a Christmas tea. I mean, strawberry? Rose? Wha?
Its still lovely, don’t get me wrong, it just does not seem to be a winter flavor.
When looking at the flavor notes for this tea, I was rather confused. All those notes in one tea?
Turns out, yes, yes there are.
This is a lovely oolong, rich, layered, complex flavors that boil down to simple goodness. I may need some more than the little sample Ost was good enough to send to me. Oh yes, I see some tea shopping in my future. Ooooh yes.
Many, many, many thanks to Ost for letting me try this!
I need a rich cup of tea today. You ever have those mornings?
I was thinking, as this was steeping up, that I’ve never actually had Figgy Pudding, so I have nothing to compare it to. For all I know, this could either be a perfect recreation, or a total deviation. No idea.
What I do know is that the tea has a rich taste of figs, which I quite like. Good!
These tiny Lupicia tins are so cute, and so perfect. Its a good amount of tea to try, albeit in sachets instead of loose. Its good to have a bit to play around with, and test the opinion, but I don’t get overwhelmed with it all.
I’m really getting the hazelnut today. Its nutty, dark, and rich. Today I have not managed to coax out the fruitier flavors, but I’ve got a couple more sachets to experiment with, so we shall see.
