1625 Tasting Notes

drank Caramele by Lupicia

So today, I didn’t have any milk. I am exhausted from nightfloat, so I decided to pick a black tea that doesn’t need any additives. From my huge Lupicia sampler, I picked this one based on the description. It didn’t need milk. Woo! I made a huge mugful of this tea.

I was very pleasantly surprised. The tea went down VERY smooth. There was a hint of astringency on my tongue after a few hours (yes hours) when the tea became cold. My mouth felt dry. However, there was no bitterness. The caramel is a hint in the background. It doesn’t taste artificial, but there was a tinge of sweetness as well. Good tea overall. I am not going to buy this tea though.

Today I decided to put coconut milk in this. I had some left over after making beans. This was a great blend, especially since I was in the tropical, coconut mood! I think this would taste great with a little pineapple. Delicious!!! :)

drank Pommier by Lupicia

So I finally cracked into my HUGE Lupicia sampler. I needed to sleep after night float and decided to open a yellow-orange packet. Pommier it was. It smells… very strong. Almost like celery (and I absolutely hate celery). Some liquor-esque smell going on too.

Anyhow, I brewed up this rooibos. It is stinky! I decided to look up the tasting notes before I took a sip. Maple syrup, apple, honeybush, and rooibos? Strange combination. I would have expected it to have a different flavor and scent. I could detect apple in the aftertaste, but that was it. Not my favorite for sure.


don’t think I’ll be getting this one… lol

I finished this tea up today. It is funny how my taste in teas have changed and evolved. This tea used to be my absolute favorite tea. After a few years, this tea doesn’t seem as great as I used to think it was. Nowadays, I’m loving oolongs! This tea is still a great dessert tea. It is sweet and has a nice blend of vanilla and caramel.

I know what you mean. This is actually one I created. I loved this too, still do but don’t reach for it as often as I used too. Though I always keep it on hand.


I totally agree :) Still a great tea creation! I am glad I had a large tin of it!


I have found that my taste in teas changes over time. I may first love something, then not like it nearly as much. I also go through flavored and unflavored periods. I like that I get to try and enjoy all sorts of teas!

I drink this tea more often than I record it. This is a sturdy, dependable black tea. It isn’t bitter or astringent. I like to add this to my own homemade chai.

I’m someone who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)

Dislikes: bitter
