This is the other Hawaiian blend that I got in sachets from Lupicia recently. I love Lupicia’s flavored green oolongs, including their pineapple (+coconut) oolong. Pineapple + guava oolong? Yes please!

Again, under suboptimal brewing conditions, but I can tell this is awesome. That nice, buttery-floral green oolong base with tasty pineapple and guava. Very tropical, very refreshing. I also recently had a different guava flavored tea from Lupicia and was very fond of it, so it seems like I like their guava flavoring too. This is really great, so glad I bought it!

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.
89-85: 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
84-80: 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.
