This is the 3rd of 4 dessert like teas from Lupicia that Dexter sent me. The last one is Chocolate and Strawberry Puer, which is likely to get me going tomorrow. Anyway…

This is a nice tea…it’s a little nutty, a little sweet, and there’s a hint of chocolate. It smells really good dry! I made this with a little cane sugar and milk today, but I think it might be better without the milk, so I’ll try it that way first, next time, and decide if I like it better with milk.

I’d say so far, I’m liking all of the Lupicia teas I have had, though the blacks have been the best so far. This is another one I wouldn’t mind having around regularly.

LOL my “keep” list just keeps growing as I try them.

Amariel

Yeah, some good stuff for sure! I’ll probably branch out to the fruity next…but I might try one of the other teas next, in between the fruity and desserty/nutty. Maybe one of the HP ones?

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.
