drank Lychee Barley by Lupicia

Open the package and pow, lychee punch to your face. I love lychee and trying out new tea/‘teas’ was one of my objectives with this black Friday. Also was looking to see if it resembles a Hawaiian tea I once had that I thought had barley in it. In a way it kinda does.

The more you steep the tea the lighter the lychee flavor becomes. It’s quite good cold but I think I enjoyed it a bit warmer. In a way barley tea reminds me somewhat of a pu erh. Perhaps it’s because of the earthy undertones?

This is my favorite of their barley teas so far. :)

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve never eaten an orchid but if they were edible I’m sure this is what they would taste like. Amber in color. Light floral scent. Tastes of… so many flavors. Yogurt, cake, orchid, vanilla, and something I can’t quite make out. Oh maybe that’s the oolong. How interesting…

Preparation
2 min, 45 sec 1 tsp

drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA

Creamy custard! I was a bit surprised as I wasn’t expecting that. Honestly I thought it would be too strong with the chamomile. Truly wish it was thicker and to actually be custard. Though honestly I’m not tasting the apples like I was hoping.

Flavors: Cream, Custard

Preparation
8 min or more 2 tsp

drank Korean Sejak by DAVIDsTEA

Korean tea. Of course the Koreans drink tea. I don’t know why I felt surprised at first. Maybe I just thought they drank a lot of Japanese and Chinese but didn’t have their own? Anyway, this kinda reminds me of a sencha. Greenish-yellowish water color. Grassy and slightly…very slight fruity aroma. Very clean and light flavor. Grassy of course, with a bit of a marine like hint.

Honestly, if you don’t like straight green tea you won’t like this but if you do I think you will enjoy it.

Flavors: Grass, Seaweed

Preparation
2 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

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

drank Cache-Cache by Lupicia

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.

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 flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
