220 Tasting Notes

68

I recently ordered a bunch of tea, including quite a bit from David’s Tea…and accidentally got sent 2 packets of this tea.

While I have a mild like for this tea, I think this will go in the iced tea pile. Not a bad thing, as there isn’t much tea I like in that pile. Yet anyways…since I plan on heading to Teavana tomorow or friday. Heh.

This tea is better then the last tea I reviewed just a minute ago, but highly doubt I will be getting this one again either.

I don’t know…maybe I will change my mind…not in a good mood at the moment.

Wasn’t impressed with this tea at all. It didn’t taste bad…just not really worth buying.

There used to be wild rhubarb growing by the fence in the backyard of the house I 1st lived in after living in the U.P. Everynow and then I’d grab a stalk and gnaw on it, though I could eat a little bit before the tartness got to me. My favorite pie as a kid? Strawberry & rhubarb pie of course:) This tea is kind of bringing those memories back.

I like this tea alot better then the strawberry and vanilla from Lupicia’s happy bag.

Not sure if I’d want to get more though.

Whoops! I thought I had done a review for this tea…total blond moment….I’ve bought so much tea these last few months that its hard to keep track.

Anyways…I am super picky about Eg blends…I mean I’ll willingly try out samples, but buying more then that it has to both unusual and fantastic.

So far this is managing to be both.

I am both relieved and disappointed that I didn’t care for this tea. Relieved because it won’t go on my summer Lupicia order, but disappointed that it was….meh. It’s not terrible…just not terribly inspiring.

drank Framboise Chocolat by Lupicia

Uh oh. This is the 2nd tea I’ve tried in the last couple of days from Lupicia that I really like and will probably end up ordering more. LOL. Ahh well.

I don’t generally like chocolate teas…they tend to taste alot like watered down hot chocolate. But when I was looking over the list of teas on Lupicia’s website, this one really jumped out at me. And hot damn! Am I glad I went with it. (And considering my original list of teas would have put my order to over $200, I’m glad it survived the 2 revisions that I had to make.

The Raspberry in this tea, didn’t taste at all fake to me…though I’m not always good about picking that kind of thing out.

drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia
220 tasting notes

Well! Happily I found a third tea that I really like from Lupicia. Not great for my wallet because undoubtably by the time summer comes around I will have to order more…but I can kinda get away with rationalize restocking to my Mom, plus a few new tries. But it will depend on how many other teas that I like.

Though this tea has pineapple in it, I don’t get much of a ‘tropical feel’ from this tea that others have mentioned. Which is fine…I got more then enough tropical teas.

There was the buttery element that others mentioned…generally speaking, buttery is not a quality that I care for, in combination with the pineapple, it made for a very appealing taste.

This is the tea I’ve wanted to try right from the get go…so I am extremely pleased that I liked it as much as I hoped.

Bio

Currently 40 years old…

Been a tea lover for most of my life, though it’s only in the past? (5-8 years.) That I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea.

I like mostly blended teas in Black, White, and some Oolong. Sadly not much Green tea that I really like. And of course Herbal.

Rating Guide that I use, though I am not terribly consistent;)

100 Excellent
90-99 Very Good
70-89 Fair
50-69 The only teas that I am interested in in this rating are teas that I can buy locally, such as at a grocery store, fruit market, tea shop, etc. Or is fairly cheap/add on thru a website.
50 and Below No redeeming qualities whatsoever or is too much like a tea that I already have.

Some teas such as Constant Comment by Bigelow I still drink on occasion, it is one of my comfort teas from when I was growing up. Others are Perfect Peach, Mint Medley and Cozy Chamomile.

I am a bookworm, though I also enjoy art journaling/mixed media, making jewelry, spending waaaaaay to much time online…particularly bingeing various tv shows on Netflix and Hulu. Also various forums like this one (On and off.) Quora, Goodreads, Youtube and misc. others. If you see the nicknames Lynxiebrat/Lynxiegrl,Lynxiedove, Zaaron or Sarikcat, then drop me a message:)
