Oh hello there, delicious oolong. This is essentially Golden Honeydew but with a green oolong base. Maybe it’s just my imagination, but I’m detecting a hint of butteriness from the base, together with a light floral note. This pairs beautifully with the delicious Melona bar-like flavour of the melon flavouring. If I were to choose between the two, however, I’d still go for the Golden Honeydew just because I swear that one has a more intense melon flavour and the base doesn’t detract from that melony excellence either.
Next up will be a cold brew, which I’m sure will be just as good as it is hot, if not better.
I’ve been working my way through my samples from Ost, but foolishly not logging many of them. Suffice it to say that I’ve been enjoying them. :) This is my second time trying this cookie tea from Lupicia. It has quite a rich black tea base, with notes of toasted almond and burnt sugar. Quite tasty and true to the name.
Hmm yummy yummy. Another great fruity green tea from Lupicia. I got this one in a mailer who knows when and finally busted it out when I was late already for work and decided just to take a tea bag with me instead of brewing/decanting while at home. I had forgotten a little – the convenience of teabags. lol.
I’ll be back on Steepster more in the new future. =) I turned away from buying more tea (other than subscriptions) during Lent and other than putting in an LP other for the Dark Matter group buy (that doesn’t count, RIGHT? it comes later!), I did pretty good! But staying away from the boards will do that.
Sample from Lupicia. As far as scented teas go, this is pretty lovely. Subtle berry flavours, not artificial candy-tasting, on a smooth green base. Nice for a sweeter change from my jasmine green. I would consider trying this or some other Lupicia tea bags for the office when I can’t brew loose-leaf.
There used to be wild rhubarb growing by the fence in the backyard of the house I 1st lived in after living in the U.P. Everynow and then I’d grab a stalk and gnaw on it, though I could eat a little bit before the tartness got to me. My favorite pie as a kid? Strawberry & rhubarb pie of course:) This tea is kind of bringing those memories back.
I like this tea alot better then the strawberry and vanilla from Lupicia’s happy bag.
Not sure if I’d want to get more though.
Uh oh. This is the 2nd tea I’ve tried in the last couple of days from Lupicia that I really like and will probably end up ordering more. LOL. Ahh well.
I don’t generally like chocolate teas…they tend to taste alot like watered down hot chocolate. But when I was looking over the list of teas on Lupicia’s website, this one really jumped out at me. And hot damn! Am I glad I went with it. (And considering my original list of teas would have put my order to over $200, I’m glad it survived the 2 revisions that I had to make.
The Raspberry in this tea, didn’t taste at all fake to me…though I’m not always good about picking that kind of thing out.
Well! Happily I found a third tea that I really like from Lupicia. Not great for my wallet because undoubtably by the time summer comes around I will have to order more…but I can kinda get away with rationalize restocking to my Mom, plus a few new tries. But it will depend on how many other teas that I like.
Though this tea has pineapple in it, I don’t get much of a ‘tropical feel’ from this tea that others have mentioned. Which is fine…I got more then enough tropical teas.
There was the buttery element that others mentioned…generally speaking, buttery is not a quality that I care for, in combination with the pineapple, it made for a very appealing taste.
This is the tea I’ve wanted to try right from the get go…so I am extremely pleased that I liked it as much as I hoped.
Oooooooo, I kinda like this one! It has this nice savory flavor to it in a way where I’d expect it to be a little salty. I get a deep toasted rice flavor on the sip that pairs well with the bright grassy notes that take over the aftertaste. It is super smooth without any bitterness. This was a sample in a tea bag and I wonder if/how a cup would differ in loose leaf since there seems to be a mix of things in there that may separate in a tin. Either way, I could see keeping a tin of this on hand!
10Mar16 – I’ll preface this review by saying I’m sick and therefore my sense of smell/tastebuds are somewhat impaired.
Dry – smells like caramel cookie.
195F (not boiling, I learned my lesson last time thanks) Steeped this twice 2 and 3 min. It was definitely better at 3 min. I liked it, though it’ll be good to retry when I’m not sick. Tasted cookie-ish. Darn you cold…
First off, I must say what a delicious tea! This is a ceremonial grade premium Matcha with a premium taste. The flow is very smooth upon consumption, and with slightly aggressive mixing you can produce a well amount of foam amongst the top of your tea. It’s reasonably priced for the type of quality you are getting. It produces a very nice vibrant green.

A sample from Miss B. I’m still working my way through the exceptionally generous box she sent me a while back now – it just seems to keep on giving! I used 1 tsp of leaf for today’s cup, and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. It brewed up a nice dark amber, so I added a splash of milk. From the dry leaf, it looks like this one is a mixture of CTC and larger black tea leaves, with generous pieces of chestnut and smaller cacao/chocolate fragments.
To taste, it’s absolutely 100% delicious. The flavour is on the delicate side, but it’s the kind of flavouring that seems like it’s part of the tea and not an addition, so I’ve no complaints about that. It’s lightly nutty, with deeper dark chocolate notes, fairly sweet and creamy, and wonderfully smooth. I couldn’t have wished for better for my first “proper” cup of the morning. It’s deliciously dessert-like without being cloying or overpowering, the perfect “comfort” cup for a cold winter’s day.
The black base is much more mellowed today which is great cuz I don’t love Lupicia’s black base. The apricot is sweet and accurately portrayed but is also mild making the tea, as a whole, nothing special or overly flavorful. It’s there and it’s satisfying enough for this one cup but once this is gone, it won’t be missed.
