drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia
30 tasting notes

More detailed notes to come soon, but this tea was everything I hoped it would be (and in a gorgeous tin to boot!) This is a keeper. Taking it iced to work tomorrow, pretty excited to give it a shot.

The bag says to steep for 1-2 minutes, but I did 4 anyway – the white tea and green tea I got in the same order ALSO say 1-2, so I think Lupicia might just include the same directions on all their teas. (Party foul.) I’ll try another cup at 2 minutes soon.

This is the joint account of Cash and Chris, two American University seniors and roommates with a love of tea and a shared collection that makes two separate accounts pretty pointless. Each tasting note is signed by which one of us wrote it.

In our photo, Chris is on the left in the plaid and Cash on the right in the poncho.

Cash is studying psychology and works at the Apple Store. He enjoys drumming, overanalyzing, and hoarding.

Chris is studying criminal justice and works for the EPA. He enjoys being terrible.

Send us a message if you’d like to do a tea trade, we’re always down to try new varieties!

Cash: I am on an epic quest to acquire some of 52teas’ Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha. It sounds like literally the perfect tea to me, and I will trade ANYTHING in my cupboard for it. Seriously. Send me a message if you’ve got some to spare.
