drank Cookie by Lupicia
1911 tasting notes

Yay, Lupicia newsletter sample. I’ve always been curious about this one, but skeptical of how I would like it since it seems to have a similar (Assam-blend) base to the Calissons d’Aix. I loved the flavor in that tea, but the base is too robust for me, meaning the assam tastes bitter to me.

The dry sachet smelled super sweet, bake-y, and well, like a cookie. I went into this knowing I would probably want to add milk and sugar to it. However, I did want to try it before doing so. I was surprised by how smooth the base tasted! Maybe a hint of assam-y bitterness, but really, I probably could have drunk the whole thing straight. But at that point I had my heart set on a milky sweet tea, so milk and sugar it is. This is really quite delicious. Definitely like drinking a cookie. I would not be sad to have a whole 50g of this. Glad to finally get a chance to try it!

Also got an email letting me know that Chestnut Green was back in stock at Lupicia! Wow, that one has been out of stock for FOREVER. It’s so tempting to order some before it disappears again!

Profile

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.
89-85: 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.
