drank Strawberry & Vanilla by Lupicia
24 tasting notes

the first thing that i noticed and loved was the packaging, which had steeping time recommendations as well as brewing tips. then when i opened the package, i felt like someone was cutting strawberries on a spring day with the sunlight streaming in. in short the smell was heavenly! beyond the smell you could tell that the quality of the tea was ideal as the leaves were not too dry and there were full (not crushed) rose petals.

i brewed this tea after a heavy brunch and the green tea with hint of rose with vanilla (which gave it the fruity taste) was a perfect way to clean the leftover taste of potatoes and eggs.

although it is recommended to be enjoyed with milk i loved the tea simply with water.

i have traveled all my life, but the one constant food/drink that has followed me around is tea. now that i am settling down in new york city (settling down meaning for a few years), i have an urge to somehow record and remember all the cups of tea and my thoughts around them.

as i have been lucky to try a diverse range of teas from around the world, my ratings are a bit tough… but they are honest. i always prefer loose leaf teas (as the leaf quality is better) and my favorite pure tea has to be green tea. i enjoy a good blend but it has to be creative!

here are my ranks:

1-10: why is this even labeled as tea?

11-20: okay, at least there is some effort

21-40: i would drink it if there was nothing else in my fridge

41-60: good but not holding my attention.

61-70: flavor and aroma are distracting me in a good way!

71-90: delicious! i come back for a second round

91-100: too good to read while drinking. addicting. like a secret that i want to keep or tell the world. that is how good this tea is!
