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!
