drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia
450 tasting notes

I’m on a roll. Because if I don’t backlog now, I never will.

I wasn’t actually going to take tea to work this morning. But I instinctively knew that I should probably take tea anyway, and man what a good decision that ended up being. And thank heavens, because I’m not a good decision-maker at the best of times.

Nay Lynn actually sent me this package, and it was my first brand new package of this tea. Why on earth does lupicia not have resealable bags? anyway, I ended up emptying this into a tin, and man oh man the scent of this tea is unbelievable. Over-ripe melons with the slight scent of earth, almost sickly sweet but so so perfect (anna, I think I got this description from you). Anyway, brewed up in my carry mug, the tea retained its intense melon sweetness, but also had some floral and cotton candy undertones and I wanted to bathe in it. But instead I chugged it like it was going out of style at work and I have no regrets and all sorts of intentions to buy more. Unbelievable.

Everyone seems to be drinking this. I must get some for myself, it sounds wonderful.

You really must. If you aren’t going to be placing a lupicia order in the near future, I can send you some.

Thanks so much Keychange, but I am planning on a Lupicia order (too many much raved about teas here. I just gotta get some!)

OMGsrsly

I have to admit I’m curious, even though I’m not one for melons. :)

keychange

It sure is perfect! and omgsrsly, I’d send you some, too. I don’t have too much left but I believe the whole world should try this.

OMGsrsly

No worries! I’ll do an order at some point, and my BFF LOVES melon, so even if I’m not a huge fan she will drink it. :)

Bio

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
