I wa on vacation so I brought a bunch of teabags/sachets with me. Lemon myrtle is one of my absolute favorite scents so i knew I had to try it. This was a lovely surprise. The ginger is well balanced with the lemon myrtle. The tea was refreshing and I could see it working well when feeling under the weather. I got 3 steeps out of it. Yeah!
Not a bad tea with milk. A little weak on its own. Vaguely fruity with a hint of malt. Not really something I would love to have in my cupboard though, as I prefer a bolder cup.
Quite enjoyable overall, just not my fave so far! Would have been perfect if there’d been more flavour intensity.
Also, I added just a teeny bit of honey for my sore throat and it seems to have taken over much of the flavour. I believe this was courtesy of VariaTEA, so thank you for sending this along! :)
Exclusive Hawaii Lupicia Blend! This one is loaded with fruity chunks, I had one giant ball of fruit that weighed 3 grams.
The flavor is very fruity as tastes like the ingredients mango, papaya, and pineapple. The base is a malty black. This tea would make a really good iced one!
My sadness is there is another mango papaya in the Hawaii collection, Kuuipo, and 2 other teas that have mango, papaya, and pineapple (so 4 teas out of 8) and 3 of those are the same black tea base. For the entire collection of 8, all are fruity teas except for one – Malama. I wish there was more variety between the collection. As I drink through the set, I’m getting a lot of “tastes kind of samey as the other blend”.
I reviewed a few others awhile back on Oolong Owl http://oolongowl.com/exclusive-lupicia-hawaii-original-tea-blends-collection-lupicia-oolong-owl-tea-review/
Not sick. Not coming down with anything. At least I don’t think so. But today was kinda crappy so it sounded like a good idea. I’m an off and on fan of Rooibos. Honeybush is much better but some how I get more rooibos then I do honeybush in this…. Surprisingly I’m not tasting as much lemon as I thought I would. Which is good! Lemon can over power and ruin a tea easily. The ginger is also timid but gives a nice little zing.
First tea of the evening. I find it odd to have a darker oolong with such a sharp fruit taste as lychee, it seems to be something to pair with a green oolong but whatever.
So I’m 95% sure this isn’t lychee because I’ve had lychee and numerous lychee teas. This taste like an apricot flavored dark oolong. What does all that mean? Shoot, I don’t know… but the dark taste rises my mood and warms my body, thus I am happy.
I’m extremely disappointed that there is no guava in this tea. I would have assumed they would have used that delicious pink guava that grows in Hawai’i in this tea. Honestly, this doesn’t even taste like guava. Black tea, hibiscus and rose. Not even that much rose really…. Sigh…
Kuuipo… You are not my sweetheart
The first steep was more then 2.5 mins. Not sure about the flavor but the dry leaf and fruit smell good. Otherwise I’m not really a fan of this one besides the smell. I’ll give it a couple more goes just in case.
What I really love is the picture on the tin. The mountain image in the background is in Hanalei, Kauai, Hawai’i. One of my favorite places in the world.
I’ve had this twice so far and I’m not sure what to think about it.
On one hand, the first try was actually pretty decent from what I remember – nice and fruity and grapey.
But when I had it again yesterday, it tasted bitter like coffee. I’m going to blame that on the fact that I drank it at work and used the water there. But since I’m spending far more prime tea-drinking hours at work than at home, I should get used to it, I think.
