drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia
302 tasting notes

This reminds me of Lupicia’s Bonne Nuit, another champagne-flavoured black tea. Both Champagne Rose and Bonne Nuit taste exactly like real champagne! God knows how Lupicia has managed to do that! The dry leaves of Champagne Rose smell of grapes and muscat (quite similar to Fanta Grape). The liquor has a fruity black tea base, which complements the sweet, candy-like grape flavour very well. I am not getting the strawberry flavour that everyone has mentioned, perhaps the grape flavour is so potent that my taste buds have become too occupied to entertain other flavours :P As I am drinking the Japanese version, there are tiny pink and silver pearls among the tea leaves. I am not sure whether they contribute any flavours to the tea, but it certainly is a nice decorative touch! Next time (I think I still have a sample from Lupicia?) I am going to try it iced! :)

Btw, just want to point out that the name of this tea is Champagne Rosé instead of Champagne Rose, so I guess it should have nothing to do with rose flower at all. ;)

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. ;)
