2333 Tasting Notes
Sorta sipdown as the rest of this is being passed along. It is nice but I really don’t reach for it enough so hopefully it will find love somewhere else. As for this cup? The base is smooth and the peony is the prominent flavor with just a hint of lychee sweetness. At the end of the day, I really just prefer black teas when I make caffeinated cups.
Thank you Roswell Strange for the share but I am not getting anything out of this. I actually had to double check what I was drinking because all I taste is a roasty vegetal base. Not horrible but not something I will ever crave. The rest of this sample is cold brewing for later so we shall see how that goes but for now this is a tea I will certainly pass up in the future.
Thank you jump62359 for sending this my way. I really love Lupicia’s melon flavor so I am enjoying this cup, however, I am not loving this base as much as some of the others. Weirdly I far prefer the oolong and the rooibos is delicious where as I find the white just a bit too present. Oh well. At least I have Golden Honeydew and Melon Oolong on the way in my joint Lupicia order with Sil and Cavocorax to keep me happy. Nonetheless, I am always happy to try something new.
Oh and this makes 1500 tasting notes :)
Earl grey and chamomile, two things I don’t usually like in tea. And on a green base? I was hesitant about this one but I am so grateful to jump62359 for sending it to me because it is actually quite good. There is a hint of the blerg but it is not offensive in this smooth and buttery cup.
So this tea looks like sludge when it is brewing and the steeped tea is rich, black, and incredibly dense. There is a buttery caramel flavor combined beautifully with sweet honey and a touch of coffee-like earthiness from the base. Good and incredibly unique, but not something I think I could drink all that often (hopefully the Orzo Strawberry I have on the way in a joint Lupicia order with Cavocorax and Sil will be a little easier to drink more often). Nonetheless, I am super grateful to jump62359 for introducing me to this tea and sending me a generous sample to try it :)
Unlike my tea twin counterpart, Roswell Strange, I am not usually a lover of stash teas but this…this is good. It 100% captures the peach cobbler flavor with notes of brown sugar and crumble combining perfectly with sweet peach. The guayusa is present too which helps tone everything down and keeps the sweet in check with a bit of earthiness. Definitely a tasty cup. Thank you for sending some my way Roswell Strange!
Wow. This one is really, really good. My first sip I was blown away by the smooth malt and caramel flavor but as I continue to drink, I am detecting a creaminess that is really amazing in this cup. There is even notes of orange and chocolate to round everything out and make this complex and delicious. Thank you so much Roswell Strange for sharing this awesome tea!
