This is a naturally sweet oolong, like really sweet! The plum flavor is definitley there with a little extra something…possibly a slight floral hint? I had this hot, but I think it would be pretty amazing iced. I had family over this weekend so my time was spent trying to entertain guests and keep the house clean from the kids toys everywhere, so I am backlogging and didn’t get to really enjoy my tea during my “down time”, but it was still a nice pick me up but almost a tad too sweet for my taste… like I said, I need to try it iced (I tend to like my iced tea a bit sweet versus my hot tea) hehe. Oh and before I forget, I thought it was really cool how the tea unfurls into huge, fat tea leaves!

Do you get the Lupicia magazine and if so do you like it? Thanks :-)

It’s just like the one they have online, with maybe an extra added page. (I’ll have to look again), but it’s only a couple of pages of info. But hey, I still like it…especially the tea recipes! :-D

Oh and it comes with 2 samples! hehehe

Bio

I am a tea enthusiast who is always looking to try a new tea, but my all time favorite is jasmine pearls…or anything with jasmine in it really. I also am a sushi fanatic and simply can’t live without it. Outside of my fanatasy world of all things tea and sushi I am an executive assistant, mother of 2 and personal taxi/maid and chef service for my little family.

But back to the tea!

I love Jasmine Pearls, just about any White Tea and then we have Pu-erh coming in last as my top three.

However, I still enjoy a good Earl Grey tea, the more bergamot the better! I have a fond place in my heart for Matcha, especially iced Matcha Lattes. Flavored green teas are always fun, but I tend to stay away from the overly grassy tasting ones… they always remind me of a wheatgrass shot!

It takes a special black tea to really win me over, for me I find that they all taste too much alike or tend to be too bitter at times; I think I am more so bored with them.

Oolongs are fairly new to me and I am finding that these are really good and they will probably end up making it as one of my top contenders!

Pu-erh I have yet to try; I am very curious, but a bit scared to try it… something about being aged in a cave just frightens me a bit, but I would like to try one in the very near future :-) Update – I have tried a few pu-erhs and I can’t get enough of them! While they are definitely an acquired taste they are lovely! This has now taken over rooibos in my top 3 teas of choice!
