1641 Tasting Notes
I am getting low on this but I am less worried about that because a) I have people in Toronto who want to do a group order and b) Lupicia replied to my email to say that they WILL ship to Canada but you have to place your order first and then they’ll get back to you with the shipping cost.
So this wonderful, light, fruity oolong can be sipped down, but NOT forgotten. :D
This sipdown (176) was brought to you in part by the lovely ifjuly who surprised me with a bunch of fine samples in February!
And this is a nice, smooth, sweet tea. Yum. A little bready, too?
Not sure how else to describe it. I’m cold and shivery and need to focus on drinking this tea to warm up instead of analyzing while it cools!
Thanks again for letting me try this.
Oh! It’s creamy orange? I immediately tasted creamy fruit but couldn’t narrow it down further. Now that I’ve cheated and read the description my taste buds are all, yes, yes I can taste orange. Suggestible traitors, aren’t they?
It really seems obviously orange now though. Mmmmm… It’s like drinking a liquid Campino! (those hard candies…. om nom nom). Yes, I’m totally digging this now. I wouldn’t crave it all the time, but it hits the spot for orange if you don’t want to be blasted with cinnamon-orange.
Thank you Sil for passing this sample on to me! (177)
Chocolate, hazelnut, coffee!!!!
Oh, and I guess tea?
It’s a magic happy makeup potion!
(I wouldn’t need it if I had actually gone to sleep at midnight but I stayed up another hour reading this great fic and then couldn’t get my brain to shut up after because I wanted more but couldn’t keep my eyes open… Kindles with built-in reading lights will be my downfall!)
