I was pretty sad when I went into the Westfield Mall recently and discovered the Lupicia store was closed! But then when I went to Lupicia’s website recently they say they are relocating to another location in the same mall. I hope that is true because it was nice to have a tea store close to me that had so many different and fun things to try.

Now, onto the tea. I am discovering lately that I am much more a fan of green rooibos than red and this makes a nice base for an herbal tea for me. There is definitely tropical fruit here but it did not knock me over with the fruitiness. I might make it up a bit stronger next time! But to me it was a very nice zingy and fruity tea I can enjoy at bedtime or anytime. The price is a bit much, I believe I paid $7.50 for a small bag of tea. Kind of makes me want to go back to Celestial Seasonings but all they have is red rooibos. :-P

When I am in Japan I am addicted to the Lupicia stores. They have such interesting varieties :) I wish there was one near me in the U.S.

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

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
