Grapefruit and peaches translate to lychee to me! Sample from the Lupicia newsletter. It tastes good, but pretty similar to most of the green tea fruit mixes. I wouldn’t buy it, but I wouldn’t turn down a cup either.

Got this as a sample in the Lupicia newsletter this month. I got two newsletters for some reason. xD No idea how that happened.
But I was excited to try this tea.
Can’t really pick out the flavors because my druggy brain isn’t working right now. xD But oh well. It’s just really fruity. Not my favorite tea ever. But not bad.
Think I’ll pass this other tea bag off to someone else who will enjoy it more though. (:
Flavors: Fruity, Smooth
I got a sample of this with my last Lupicia purchase, and I’ve been on a tea bag kick lately.
It’s super fruity! I don’t know what I was doing following the 5 min steep time for a green tea blend though. I suppose that’s for the taste of the rooibos to come out, but it made the green tea bitter. I think if I could try it again I’d try it with green tea parameters. Despite the bitterness, the flavoring was pleasant, as it usually is with Lupicia.
Contrary to the name, Happiness did not bring me immense joy. I found the flavor to be a bit wonky, an odd blending of sweet and sour along with a yeasty aftertaste. I felt like there was so much going on and this blend would have been much better served had Lupicia adopted the mantra of “less is more”. Wouldn’t recommend it, Lupicia has much better teas for your time and money.
From the queue
Here’s another one from the EU TTB round 2. I used half of this sample this afternoon for a cup of tea (he had something else) and a couple of biscuits on the sofa.
I have to say that while it was a fine tea, it didn’t really leave much in the way of an impression on me. I tried to guess what was in it without looking it up and only got as far as ‘orange, I think.’ Having now checked it’s actually peach and grapefruit. I suppose that now, afterwards, I can see the peach in it, but it was not something that sprang to mind while drinking. I knew there was something citrus, though.
Apart from the fruit, it mostly just tasted like a green tea. For some reason it made me think of gunpowder in spite of the fact that I haven’t had any gunpowder for a couple of years and can’t rightly recall what that tastes like. But it’s supposed to also have green rooibos in it, which I also don’t rightly know what tastes like, but I couldn’t pick anything out in the flavour where I thought that must be the rooibos.
A pleasant enough blend, but not really something mind-blowing.
