Sigh
I am having a difficult morning, lots of shoulder pain today and I wish it would just end already!

So it was a perfect time to try this tea, I’ve been wanting to sample this for ages and I can’t believe I never have. It’s delicious! The aroma is sweet and chestnutty, it smells like a decadent dessert of the marzipan variety. The flavor is so good, slightly vegetal almost buttery with loads of sweet chestnut flavor. I don’t know how Lupicia managed this one but it is definitely the best flavored green I’ve had. There is probably artificial flavor in here but I don’t care, ‘cause it’s amazing. This will definitely end up as a staple in my cupboard.

Not sure what else to say about it aside from YUM is the word! Tough times call for delicious teas!

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta
