WOoot Lupicia! My first time trying them out!

STEEPED: Yellow tea, smells like sweet plums and loads of floral.

TASTE: Light vegetal oolong, slightly buttery and sweet, and quite rosey floral. Very light on the plum, with a plum aftertaste.

I actually stole a bit for iced tea yesterday – and this tea made pretty good iced tea. THe plum was much sweeter, but still floral and oolong flavor present.

I then resteeped it for hot tea and it was good, but there was no plum flavor, but the floral and oolong was pretty nice. I could probably get a 3rd resteeping if I have time.

Overall, check this one out if you like floral teas. The plum here is quite nice, I’d love more of it for hot tea, but is pretty good.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
