drank Apricot Houji by Lupicia
302 tasting notes

At first I thought this tea was really amazing. I loved the roasted, slightly sweet houji tea base (for some reason it reminds me of Mont Blanc dessert!) as well as the gentle, sweet, apricot flavour. Everything went well until the tea started to cool. The apricot aroma began to smell artificial and grew stronger and stronger, up to the point that it became off-putting and pungent… weird. Now I don’t want to touch the cup… :(

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. ;)
