drank Chili Rooibos T-Dust by Sanctuary T
2655 tasting notes

I’ve used this twice now but I keep screwing it up by putting it overtop of something more powerfully flavored:
1) in MD crab soup (vegetable soup w crab meat) but I had already put a bit of Smoky Black T-dust on it, and the soup had some spice too, so I couldn’t discern the red tea dust.
2) Tonight I put some on my pizza, but I’d already added dried red pepper flakes before baking it, so I have no idea how much of the heat/flavor is coming from the t-dust.

I’ll get it right one of these days… In the meanwhile, I’m glad I bought the green & red flavors when they went on sale. The new lids are great. And the Smoky Black with it’s intense aroma is perfectly happy in the more airtight older lid.

Apparently it’s Lupicia sipdown day in my house…

Anyway, I thought I had enough of this for a full serving also, but once I dumped the first 1/2 tsp into my 8oz milk I realized there was only 1tsp total left in the packet, instead of the suggested 2. So I shook in the dust and hoped for the best. shrug I’ve made my peace with this mix but it’s not my fave. I’m looking forward to trying the other 2 flavors in my cupboard (strawberry and caramel, I believe?) now that this is gone.

drank After 5 by Lupicia

It’s not after 5, it’s only after 2, but I"m all spun up with work stuff and I really need some calm. Hoping this will help…

drank Orzo - Caramel & Honey by Lupicia
2655 tasting notes

Thought I had enough left for a whole mug, but it turns out it’s more like scant half mug :(

This will be sadly missed and will probably soon prompt an unnecessarily large order at Lupicia just so I can get the monthly sample/newsletter & free shipping… even though I absolutely do not need more tea. I think I better go through the Lupicia samples I have first so I can decide what else to order!

backlogging: this really brightened up some sauteed asparagus last night. Between the salt, pepper, olive oil and butter I can’t say I could pick out all the flavors of this dust, but it did make the food taste “brighter” and fresher and with more depth/nuance of flavor.

What else do you use this with? I have some and I just can’t see to get the flavor to come out in anything?

this is the first time I’ve used this flavor. The Smoky Black and Red Pepper Rooibos are a bit more in your face ( I like either in tomato or vegetable soups.). I’m thinking the green would go best on more mild foods like chicken, plain rice, etc. Maybe even sprinkled on fresh fruit?

I find the “funky” ginseng flavor of this too strong when brewed straight, so last night I threw a bag into the water when steaming some asparagus. The end result was a hint of flavor but nowhere near as strong as when brewed. Success! Hopefully some of the green tea & ginseng goodness infused themselves in to my veggies :-)
