drank English Caramel by Lupicia
299 tasting notes

When this tea was served hot, the caramel was aromatic – kinda like caramel or toffee candies – but this didn’t translate into the flavour, unfortunately. I had the feeling that I was just having a cup of plain black tea. Imagine the disappointment! I was going to give this tea just a bare pass, but then I noticed a bright note of sweetness in my cup as the tea turned cold. The caramel was there, after all!! Perhaps I would try this with milk next time (or more radically, iced?).

It’s true that Lupicia’s teas are generally not strong, and this tea is no exception. remember to add more tea leaves when you think it is enough! Trust me! ;)

Profile

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. ;)
