This tea smells like chocolate strawberry. It’s so good I don’t ever want to drink it; I could stand there and huff the bag all day. I couldn’t do that though. That’s just silly.

So I steeped it for 2 minutes. It smells so strongly of chocolate strawberry that the first few sips were disappointing! It tasted like muted strawberry chocolate with earthy puerh… But a few sips after that I paid more attention to the flavour and I feel like this is a flavourful blend I will want to resteep later this afternoon. And probably re-stock when I do my eventual order… The puerh is noticable but not overwhelmingly earthy/dirty etc and it goes well with the sweetness of the chocolate strawberry.

This was part of the shared order with Sil and Kittenna and I have to say that whoever picked this one did a good job! Thanks! I didn’t really pick much out myself but I’m happy with the Lupicia teas that we decided to share.

I agree with your review. I think this tea is a good way to try pu’er for the first time, so the “barn floor” taste doesn’t take a new pu’er-er down for the count. :)

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
