1295 Tasting Notes
Hmm. Not sure what I was expecting with this. Something more citrusy? But I like it! Its a green tea with mint, and, as it cools, indeed a bit of citrus. I am always timid around green teas, but I’ve got help with this one. Mint and lemon is a lovely combo, and help introduce this green and myself. Maybe we can be friends!
I feel like this review took a turn for the weird. Now back to your regularly schduled steepster.
Lupicia, I love you. Its real love, and not a generally high matinence love. However, because I love you, I feel the need to tell you that a flat vanilla tea is not your strongest suit. Neither this nor La Vanille (back to back tasting soon!) are particularly vanilla, and miss the charm and pop of your other blends I’ve tried.
Well, its not undrinkable, but its just not special.
This has been said with love.
I had a dream about going to work and working with difficult clients. Not cool, subconcious. I want to do awesome things while I’m dreaming, like flying, or going on adventures, or, as happened the night before, setting up a moon colony (we were trying to figure out how to get gardeners and chocolate makers to come up and set up shop). I dont wanna work in my sleep!
Oh well, on to the tea.
I really like that this is a green apple tea, and not a red apple tea. I like green apple the best. Light steeping is key.
I like it, but I dont love it. Still, I’m not about to dump it out anywhere.
Long day. Very busy, with a million people in and out of the office. Not to mention me thinking it was Friday and I had overslept moment this morning (neither being true. Both whew and aww, at the same time).
Tea. Its not going to feel right for this rich vanilla tea, I think. It gets hot here, and I’ll move to lighter “feeling” teas.
But tonight its a perfect and cuddly cup of relaxation.
I woke up this morning in a panic, convinced I was late, and thinking it was even the wrong day.
Gah. Dont know where, but it was a frantic five minutes.
Now, on to the tea!
I got both Vanilla and La Vanille when I put in my last order. I quest for the perfect vanilla tea, and I was interested in comparing and contrasting.
First up, in loose format, this is tiny. Granules instead of leaves, with the occational fragment of…. vanilla bean? Maybe?
This has not got nearly enough vanilla to please me, and an oddly bitter undertaste, which is not enjoyable. Its not so bitter that its undrinkable, but I am mightily disapointed.
Next time I’ll do a back to back test of this and Vanilla, to see what the difference actually is!
More writer juice! Moar!
I’m almost out of this too. Yeesh, I’m just powering through my rose teas this spring! A Lupicia order may be required very soon.
Trying to figure out if the store is open. I suddenly got a yen to cook a quiche, and I dont have all the ingredients. I also want to figure this out without putting on my clothes and going out, though. Things are so nice here in my robe.
Well, I’ve got a thousand words to write still anyway.
Oh no. Oh the drama. This is now all gone! Oh the humanity! Why?!?!?! I wanted it to last for much longer in the springtime. Obviously I could not stop drinking it, and its how we got into this trouble in the first place.
Yum. Elegant rose tea with little sugar crystals. It tastes so glorious.
I got to sleep in today, which was a pure delight.
Today my plans are to write, drink a lot of tea, and then read my book (I am not getting nearly the amount of reading I want too lately. That must be remidied!) and eat my seasonal package of Peeps. Peeps!
Its going to be a good day.
Today I had work, a lecture on modern art, and a small shopping trip! Excelent day, but now I need to write 3000 words to be on track for Camp Nanowrimo. So I need tea.
Lets start with something with caffine. I’m tired enough to need it.
This is it- sweet, uncomplicated, mellow. Good start. Lets get cracking!
