It was 63 degrees and rainy today… i.e. almost fall weather… i.e. time to pull out this awesome tea. It is seriously the perfect rainy day tea. It just warms you from the inside out. Yum! It was delicious as always.

You almost made me buy a rooibos tea. Almost ;)

I haven’t had this tea in forever! I found it in my cabinet this morning and I thought it would be perfect for breakfast this morning. It has a nice subtly apple flavor. Not to strong or fake. Yum :)

I have had this tea before but I liked it a little better this time. I remember it being a little more sour. This cup seemed a little smoother and sweeter. There was still that sour note that is present in most fruit teas, but overall I enjoyed the cup. Not something I would purchase for myself, but I liked the sample.

Another free sample. Apparently I have had it before, but I don’t remember. It is okay. I am not sure that I am a huge fan of lemongrass. There is something about it that tastes off to me. Almost grain like in flavor. It was a decent afternoon cup of tea though.

drank Kiwi by Lupicia

Free sample time! I got my sample of this tea over the weekend and decided that this morning was the time to try it.

First off the smell is really accurate. When I first smelled the dry tea, I actually felt like I was eating a kiwi! Once steeped it smells more of the same.

Personally I think it tastes way less like kiwi than it smells. It tastes more like green apple to me. I think it tastes perfectly like a green apple jolly ranchers. I think that this would fulfill any candy craving.

I don’t know that I would want to buy more of this tea because it was a little sweet for my taste, but it was definitely a fun to try!

Thanks for the warning! I would be disappointed to smell kiwi (which I like) but taste green apple (which I don’t)…

I have to disagree. I don’t think this tastes anything like green apple.

I received my sample a few days ago too… I probably will be trying it today.

Had some of this with French Toast this morning. The smoky boldness went well with the sweetness of the food. I am almost out of this tea sadly. I will have to find some more Lapsang Souchong.

Having a cup of this tea for breakfast today. Unfortunately I think it may be my last cup. I went through this tea pretty quickly. It is a very nice strong breakfast tea. It holds up well with most breakfast foods.

Profile

Bio

I am a typical college student, an Evolutionary Anthropology major. I spend most of my time hanging out with my boyfriend and friends, playing TF2 and popcap games, reading, and of course drinking tea.

I first started drinking tea every morning when I was a freshman in high school. I have recently discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I absolutely adore trying new teas (especially ones that sound like desserts)…Although I will always have my old favorite: big bold breakfast teas and my new favorite: wonderfully flavorful rooiboses.
