644 Tasting Notes
This would be much better if I hadn’t oversteeped it. I can tell it has a yummy sweet nougat, that I’m really looking forward to trying when I am not sipping a somewhat bitter brew.
I’m going to pay more attention next time so I can give this tea the proper attention it deserves. Thanks for sending this one Dexter!
It’s chocolate, it’s strawberry, it’s pu erh…what’s not to like about this one? I always find that chocolate pairs very well with the more earthy and rich notes of pu erhs. Also, I find that the strawberry cuts through some of that thickness quite well. So I think this is an excellent tea!
Flavors: Chocolate, Strawberry
I tried making this pretty much the same way I did it yesterday for the amaretto, with the exception that I heated the milk a little in the microwave before adding it to the cup to froth. I’m not sure if that made a difference or not, but I had a hard time picking the hazelnut out in this one. Yesterday I could clearly taste the amaretto. So I might try the cold milk again and see what happens with another flavour.
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.
One of the matchas from Sil! I was sorta ok with the Irish Cream I tried yesterday (not logged yet), but then decided to try things a little differently today with the Amaretto.
I used the whole packet, a small amount of boiling water, a little sugar and a little milk. I found I needed to add more milk, but other than that, it was very tasty! I do love me some amaretto.
I found this one to be very similar to the Cinnamon Cookie Puer, only no cinnamon, and not quite as rich. Not in a bad way, mind you. It was a little sweeter in place of the cinnamon, and the coffee note was more subdued. This one does smell more like an almond cookie. I like both teas about equal.
It is really tasty! It makes a great breakfast tea for me. I’m eternally grateful to Dexter for sending this to me with a bunch of other Lupicia teas to try. So far, so good!
I’m getting a nice balance of green tea to apple with this one. It is not quite as sweet or apple-y as Big Apple from DAVIDs, but it is still good. I bet a drop of maple to sweeten instead of the raw cane sugar I use would bridge that gap. I might look at cold steeping the rest. I’d like to see if that pulls out more juicy apple.
Thanks to Dexter for sending me this one. I do love apple teas.
Very smooth and creamy cup…but I have to say that I’m getting very little pineapple. I get mostly floral oolong, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that…but I wish there was just a bit more pineapple and less floral. Adding a bit of raw cane sugar did make the mouthfeel a bit juicier though. I’m cold steeping the leaves for a second cup later, so we will see how that it. Will be interested to see how it compares to Butiki’s Flowery Pineapple Oolong.
All in all, it’s a good tea, but I need more pineapple. We’ll see how the cold brew holds up in that area. I will have no problem finishing the rest of this tea. Thanks so much for sending it Dexter!
Oh this one is tasty! It doesn’t have a strong cookie note to me, but I can pick up on the cinnamon and coffee a bit. If I were to make this as a latte, it would make me feel like I was having a cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks. I could see myself drinking this one regularly. :)
Thanks for sending this one, Dexter! It’s super yummy!
