1348 Tasting Notes
So far today I have had a cup of tea spilled on my laptop and my dinner dumped on my roommates shoes. It has not been a very good night thus far. Though I have been with friends and that is fun.
Now we are enjoying a pot of this pretty tea. It tastes nice enough but nothing spectacular. Lychee is definitely present and the base has a full body.
A friend is visiting and so I decided to use this opportunity to sip on a pretty blooming tea while we study. This way, I don’t need to drink a whole pot of tea on my own and we have something nice to look at as opposed to just our computer screens and textbooks.
As for the tea, it is actually surprisingly good. I always expect blooming teas to lack in flavor but this has a mellow peach taste atop a smooth white base.
Thank you Dustin for sharing this great tea. It honestly is one of the better cherry flavors I have had and the black base provides a surprising amount of body for a decaffeinated tea. It is like indulging on a juicy cherry, both sweet and tart and oh-so-delicious. I am sad to see it go.
Thank you Kat_Maria for sharing but I think I finally found a Lupicia tea that really is not for me. The weird thing is, I believe this delivers on what its name promises. There is a distinct honey sweetness with some generic fruitiness floating in the cup. However, I am just not loving the combination here. I am finding the honey taste too sweet and sort of artificial, while the black base is too prominent. I am not too upset though given how many other teas I have loved from our swap. They can’t all be winners and this, for me, was a miss.
This smells sooo good! I made this at the same time I made Cookie and Banane Chocolate and all I could smell was deliciously ripe cherries. Sipping on it now, this has an amazing cherry flavor. Of course, I have come to realize that I really shouldn’t expect anything less from Lupicia. Thank you Dustin for the opportunity to try this tea!
Thank you Dustin for sharing this with me. This has a great banana flavor. In fact, it is actually satisfying my craving for 52 Teas Banana Pudding Black Tea. However, it is even better because it has what tastes like a rich chocolate drizzle, just enough that it is noticeable without overpowering the banana flavor. So good!
I handed in a final assignment that I have been working on all day, and as a result, I decided to have a celebratory cookie. Definitely a good plan. It is buttery and crisp and has just the right amount of caramel. Plus, the base gives it a little bit of a well done quality that really makes everything reminiscent of a perfectly baked cookie with a slightly crunchy edge and a soft, chewy middle. Yum!! Thank you to both Kat_Maria and Dustin for supplying me with this tea!! You guys are both awesome :)
So this has cooled quite a bit while I was working on my final project. I am sort of sad about that because for the first time in a while it has a great strawberry flavor.
You know what I am not sad about though? Finding this awesome acapella group on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lExW80sXsHs
