Always have wanted to try this tea. I’m quite impressed. So creamy and smooth. I haven’t had any milk in a long time. My husband is allergic and I try to keep dairy products out of the house. That and not having straight up milk has really helped improve my skin.

Is there any milk in this? Man my taste buds are so confused. The lovely vegetal oolong the silky, smooth milkish whatever it is that causes that flavor.

I am a vanilla soy milk lover. :D

Nummy. Fruity. Peachy. I was so grumpy this morning. Thank you for the pick up. Not a huge fan of the fruity mix but Lupicia still did a great job with this.

drank Kettle Corn by 52teas

I have to work tonight so I figured now would be a good time to steep a cup of this mate. By the way for those of you who are curious it’s pronounced ma as in mama and te like tay. :)

It’s been a long time since I’ve had mate so I feel that I can’t be a very good judge but I’m enjoying this cup. Flavors of hay and a slight mintyness to it. To be honest I don’t taste the kettle corn. But with the roasty flavor of the tea I can see the comparison.

drank White Christmas by Lupicia

Oh yummy! So sweet and decadent! Even the steeped leaves have an intense sweet smell to them! For some reason I am thinking and tasting popcorn! Ah crap… now all I’m thinking about is popcorn. I can barely even taste the black tea base. It hits my tongue first but is immediately taken over by the white chocolate, and then the popcorn flavor gets the rest.

Flavors: Popcorn, White Chocolate

drank Tea Break by Lupicia
325 tasting notes

This is another one in the set of Christmas teas that I mainly bought because I love the art on the tin. The tenant self is also very appealing. they close tightly and fit plenty of loose leaf tea. But enough about the tin. I hadn’t actually looked at what tea came with this one but of all straight black tea this one is probably one of my favorites. It has a sweet scent in the dry leaves. Generally I find it’s a bit sweeter then other black teas when steeped. I find it hard to describe this one. I know people say malty but I guess I can’t really understand it. Like saying salty without ever having tasted salt.

I added a bit of amaertto honey to mine. So yum.

Preparation
Iced 3 min, 0 sec

I liked this one, too. Malty with a bit of earth and raisin. :)

The fruity flavors seem to come out more in the first few minutes of steeping. Once you’ve past the 2 minute threshold the black tea starts taking over. I think ive got a good blend at 2:15. It has a slight woodsy taste, the black tea that it. I’m not tasting much vanilla though so the tea bag is going back in.

Ah 30 seconds in and I’m tasting it a bit more but still not as much as I’d like. It’s also starting to lose it’s fruityness and becoming more woodsy. So out it comes again. Fir good this time.

I’ll be honest though…. I bought it for the tin… so cute.

I wonder if the decaf version would taste or steep any differently.

Skysamurai

My guess would be yes because of the process they go through to make the tea have less caffeine

Cameron B.

I have both, I’ll let you know! :P

drank Plum Barley by Lupicia

Well this is…. unique. Good but just… I can’t quite grasp how different it is from anything else I’ve tried. It kinda makes me think of hojicha in a way. Maybe it’s because of rhe toasty/roasty flavor. I thought I had tried it before but I don’t remember this strong a flavor! I do probably need more water though. And the plum! Umeboshi! Haha not quite but I do sense hints of that here and there.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it with something added. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
