drank Hapjan Purbat BOP-CTC by Lupicia
305 tasting notes

My 17th tea from The Book of Tea! It’s also my second CTC tea. I know, I know, CTC is generally used for tea leaves of lower quality… but guess what, I like CTC tea, at least this one and Kilimanjaro (also from Lupicia)! This tea had a decidedly fruity aroma, whether dry or steeped. The fruity flavour was rich in the liquor too – the tea could be described as on the sweet side by the standard of black tea. It reminded me of plum, though I believe it’s more because of its dark brown liquor rather than its actual taste :P I did detect mild bitterness in the tea; I wasn’t sure whether it’s because I had oversteeped it accidentally. But still, it’s an enjoyable cup. Would make a lovely companion for scones!

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, Kusmi Tea, Lupicia, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)
