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!
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
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.
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.
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…
