1974 tasting notes

Sipdown, back to 154. I got my monthly Lupicia newsletter the other day and this was the sample.

Lupicia’s fruit flavorings can smell very candy-ish, and this one is no exception. However, I find that they taste more authentic than they smell, at least to me. This one is strongly reminiscent of the plain strawberry tea, with added vanilla. In fact, it’s almost somewhere between Strawberry and Fantasy. It’s quite nice, really, especially given that I’m not usually a fan of strawberry-flavored things. Also I always find it funny now when people talk about Lupicia’s flavorings being light, and the black tea being the main thing… to me, this is nicely flavored because I can still taste the black tea base (which in this case is nice and smooth), and I would not call these flavorings light at all.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
