2353 Tasting Notes
Tea of the morning here. I got this as a sample with one of my Lupicia newsletters.
I tend to like fruity teas and Lupicia seems to have a lot of them. This blend is fairly enjoyable, the black tea has a very smooth and mild flavor and I found the guava to be quite natural and subtle. I thought this might be good with almond milk, but I was wrong. Now it just tastes like almond flavored kool-aid, but part of the problem is I just don’t like almond milk in tea or coffee. :P
This would be good as an iced tea, I think. Not a “must have” item but I would certainly not turn a cup down if it was offered to me.
I’ve had this oolong for 2 years now according to my Steepster notes. I finally decided to finish off the bit I had today and this still seems really good to me, very buttery with sweet vegetal notes. I shall miss it, but I think I have a good excuse to purchase some more green oolongs soon since I don’t have too many more left. ;)
This is equally good prepared gong fu or western style.
Backlogging – last night we we hanging out at an ashram listening to this guy, Laraaji play the zither and practicing laughter yoga.
(yes, I am weird, so what, lol) So it seemed like this was an appropriate tisane to have in the evening time. This is really good with a touch of coconut sugar to just sweeten it up a bit. Takes the chill out of the fog here and the cardamom/ginger blend is good for digestion.
This came in the Lupicia grab bag. I like chamomile okay but I’ve never had elderflower before. The tea seemed to be very vegetal like corn husks or something, I also found it slightly bitter. Wouldn’t drink this for the taste of it, really but it did seem to be nice and relaxing. Also I was interested about the health benefits of elderflower after I did some research on it, evidently it’s good for allergies.
