1112 Tasting Notes
I do love the Lupicia newsletter, sending me samples of things that I would never order. I suppose thats the point of the samples.
This is fresh and almost juicy. Readers of my reviews might notice a theme- green tea is not my thing. I try, but its just not what grabs me out there in tea-land.
That said, this is pretty good!
Nom nom nom. Tasty. This is really well balanced. I think theres lemon or orange peel in this, wich is genius! What a good idea! I’ve found that in a lot of savory things, be it tea or actual food, the addition of a little citrus just makes it. It adds a “bright” note into it, which creates a whole new dimention of yum.
The actual pumpkin note is secondary to the pie spice taste, but overall I’m a fan.
Pro tip. BBQ turkey jerky does not pair well with pumpkin tea. Just FYI.
New-ish tea goals.
If I have a tea in my cupboard that has no notes, or I havnt tried it, what exactly is stopping me, eh? Get a move on! You own this tea, drink it!
This….. is chamomile. Its not bad, standard issue. I expected the saffron to add something more to it, but it didnt quite brew up that well. In the box it smells a bit roasty, but I’m not noticing anything special about it in the cup.
Still, I like to have a chamomile in my cupboard at all times.
Tonights steeping of this brings me out much more of the strawberry flavor.
This tea is a puzzle. I like all of the components- strawberry, chocolate, and rose, but this tea somehow is less than the sum of its parts. I feel greatness lurking in the background, but I may not be the steeper to bring it out.
DAVIDs Tea always becomes experimentation tea. Where I keep tying, to see what it will do next.
