Thank you so much Cameron B for the sample! :D

I like to drink this type of green on the weekend when I am home where my kyusu is!

This is VERY nice buttery sweet green tea. Reminds me of gyokuro. Need I say more?

Thanks Angel and TeaVivre for the sample!

This is an enjoyable green TGY oolong. SUPER vegetal and a little sweet. It has a lingering floral aftertaste that is pretty enchanting.

Thanks for the sample cookies

This BOLD tea was exactly the kick in the pants I needed this afternoon. It is sweet, malty, bold and a little astringent. Did I mention it is bold? OK, just making sure ;)

Good stuff!

Marzipan

Was it bold?

cookies

Really love this one. Though I didn’t find it especially bold when following their steeping directions.

I will admit to not following instructions :P

Cameron B.

Yeah, who follows instructions? Psh. :P

drank Chestnut Green Tea by Lupicia
987 tasting notes

YUM! I am really impressed with this tea!

It tastes like buttery sweet sencha, with caramelized sugar or butter toffee and nuts. SO GOOD! It tastes more like cookies than the two Lupicia teas I’ve tried that actually had the word cookie in the name :)

Flavors: Butter, Nuts, Toffee

I like this way better than their chocolate and chestnut tea. Which reminds me… I have an unopened bag of this tea! Yay!

Ost

I really need to try this one!!

It was pretty good when I tried it at the store.

Thanks for the sample cookies

These pearls are pretty mild. Drinkable but boring. Maybe I’m just not in the mood for them? Meh. Sorry!

drank Cinnamon Cookie Puer by Lupicia
987 tasting notes

I’ve been alternating between excited about and scared of this tea, LOL!

It SOUNDED delicious…then the dry leaf smelled kind of weird…then once steeped up it smelled delicious. I’m picky about my cinnamon teas so this was quite a gamble!

But I like it! I can’t really taste the puerh. Maybe it is adding to the earthiness of the coffee aspect of the flavor though. The cinnamon is definitely there but pretty mild. I don’t get the cookie part but I’m drinking this unsweetened and without milk. I have a feeling this is another one that would be really incredible if sweetened. I’m sure it would be fabulous brewed up extra strong with some sugar and cream, like a cinnamon latte :)

Dustin

They were out of this last time I was in a store and I forgot to look for it when I placed my last online order! Yarrrr!

Stephanie

Have you tried it before?

Dustin

No I haven’t, but I have been curious.

Thanks for the sample cookies :D

WOW This is a crazy complex tasting tea. Lovely dry leaf, too. So cute! I want to pet the tiny curly leaves :)

Anyway, vegetal, sweet, fruity, lightly floral and a little bit smokey. Maybe the least boring green tea ever! I’m impressed!

Thanks to Angel and TeaVivre for the sample!

This is a very nice oolong! Super buttery and vegetal, with some nice sweetness and faint floral highlights on top. I always forget how much I like oolongs like this one until I drink one again. Quite good! :)

drank Marron Chocolat by Lupicia
987 tasting notes

This tea reminds me of Lupicia’s Cookie but with some nuts!

It is mildy roasty, creamy, and definitely nutty. I’m not getting much chocolate though. I think it might be one of those teas that is begging to be sweetened to pop the flavors out. I’ll try that next time :)

Thanks for the sample Angel and TeaVivre!

So excited to break in to my oolong samples, and this one was first on my list! I think Dan Cong is probably my favorite type of oolong, though I’ve only had a couple of different Dan Congs so far. This one is roasty and sweet, with a smooth sweet potato/honey thing going on. It is nice, but I prefer a more floral type of Dan Cong myself. If you like dark and roasty oolong you will probably dig this one!
