drank Lapacho Orange by The Tea Haus
607 tasting notes

This one confuses me…the lapacho herb reminds me of Amaretto from DAVIDs and the Orange reminds me of Orange Blossom from DAVIDs as well…it smells soooooo good!

It’s too hot to take a sip just yet, but for now, I will breathe in deeply to the scent wafting up from my mug. This is only from the 5 minute steeper method too. I wonder how much more intense it would be with the stove-top method of preparation.

If this is truly medicinal, I may need to beef up my intake because I have been feeling so sluggish lately.

More later once it cools and I can take a sip….

Ok, so it is not too hot anymore in the burning tongue capacity, but still nice and hot to start drinking. I think I may have under-brewed this, either by not using enough leaf, or not letting it steep long enough, but it is a very nice herbal blend with juicy orange. It’s quite tasty actually, but just a little thin and weak.

Thanks to Indigobloom for this one, as I know I will enjoy this cuppa, and the one to follow.

Glad you like it!
I was at a local shop today and they had a version of this that I can replace it with. I was soooo happy to find that :D

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
