drank Ripe Mango Oolong by Lupicia
2309 tasting notes

I am updating my tasting note here. 1 – 1/2 minutes is plenty of time to steep this oolong, I tried it again today and it is much better with less steeping time.

I do like many flavored oolongs by Lupicia but unfortunately this is not one of them. Smells of mango but not only vaguely fruit flavored in my opinion. I would recommend giving this a short steeping time because it will turn bitter very quickly. Not really my cuppa… but perhaps it will be yours!

I’ve been drinking this tea for at least 15 years and I recently picked up a box again – it’s been so long! I really like it as an after dinner dessert tea with some soymilk. It reminds me of cinnamon toast and you certainly can’t beat the price. Unlike “chai” tea it is also gentler on my stomach.

drank Strawberry Cream by TeaGschwendner
2309 tasting notes

Evidently it is my mission in life to try every strawberry tea on the planet. This has a very nice aroma and light color – I brewed it for the full two minutes on the package. Boyfriend tried it this morning and says it reminds him of Nestle Quik. I am finding the strawberry flavor very delicate and appealing

drank Orchid Oolong by Mighty Leaf Tea

This is one of my favorite flavored oolongs of all times. I love coconut and I can really appreciate the elegant tropical floral/coconut combination here. I drink this in the afternoons and it always manages to perk me up. Almost feels too decadent to be a tea. :)

This is a delicious pu-erh which is earthy and slightly sweet, very mellow tea with no bitterness or acidity. I usually steep mine at least twice and it is a lovely tea to drink all morning or afternoon

drank Orange Chocolat by Lupicia
2309 tasting notes

I have discovered I am not such a fan of chocolate in tea, nonetheless I am drinking this because I bought some! It does not really have much of an aroma at all. The flavor is not too strong, just a mild orange black tea with a hint of cocoa. What really makes this kinda special for me is the cardamom, I am a cardamom freak. I would probably not go out of my way to buy this again but it certainly is a good, pleasant dessert tea.

drank Strawberry by Lupicia

hmm, I agree with the other review here, the aroma of the tea is fabulous but I was really hoping for more of a strawberry flavor, I recommend the strawberry black rhubarb tea from Lupicia, it’s a lot more interesting.

AMY!!!! I’m going to Lupicia this weekend and I’m going to try the strawberry black rhubarb on your recomendation :)

TeaBrat

yes! I also like the Strawberry and Chocolate pu-erh and the Sakurambo Vert. And the pineapple oolong! You’ll have fun!!

Jenn

The pineapple oolong is my primary reason for going. AND it’s on the westside so that means lunch at Veggie Grille… too much fun!!!

TeaBrat

Let me know what you end up buying!

drank Cinnamon Plum by Rishi Tea
2309 tasting notes

This is one of my favorite herbal teas, thank you again Rishi! I love the dark purple color of this tea and it smells divine. Warming and smooth. The plum and cinnamon are deep and earthy while the hibiscus gives it a slightly tart note, but not too overwhelming. I could drink this for hours every day and never get sick of it. Very highly recommended for fruit tea lovers as a unique experience.

drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia
2309 tasting notes

So I discovered a Lupicia opened up in San Francisco, I’ve been trying a lot of their yummy flavored teas. This one is charming, the pineapple flavor is very pronounced and leaves you with a slightly tart finish – very refreshing and clean. Definitely a good match for the oolong. I did not pick up any coconut, however…
