SIPDOWN! So i won’t make it to 205 but at least i can get under 210 this weekend. Not that it will mean much because there is tea on the way! hahaha. This is one of my older teas, so i’m glad to be finishing it all up. I’d pick this up again if i’m ever around a Lupicia store again :)

Terri HarpLady

I still have some of this from the generous sample you sent me : )

Sil

Sipdown #7, ending the day at 311 teas, I think. They may not be entirely accurate, actually, because there were a few teas I restocked from Butiki, but I’ll settle out the numbers at the end of the month.

This was a generous sample from Sil, a nice fruity blend, also a decaf, which allowed me to drink one more cup of black tea into the evening. Thanks Sil!

I can’t honestly say that I recall the last time I had a decaffeinated tea, and I generally don’t bother, but when Sil opened up the bag of this for me to sniff, the amazingly delicious smell of fresh lychee was impossible to pass up! So here we are.

Brewed up, the tea retains this incredibly fruity aroma, which is packed with lychee goodness. I’ve had a lychee before, DavidsTea’s Lychee Black, but I don’t recall it having such a real fruit aroma. I’ll have to re-check my tasting notes, but I don’t think I particularly liked it. Anyhow, this tea. Can’t get over how delicious it smells. Flavourwise, however, it does leave a little something to be desired, and that’s primarily in the base. I suspect it has to do with the decaffeination, but the base just isn’t as good as it could be. Or perhaps, more to the point, I think I’d prefer this with a white or green base that’s more vegetal.

Either way, the flavour is bang on fruity lychee, so if you are fond of such things, I suggest you give it a shot! Thanks for giving me a sample of this one Sil!

This tea packs a wallop when you open the package….your nose will be very happy and hopeful. There is lychee in this tea as well as other fruity notes. But alas, when you step this, you’ll wish you used more tea. When you taste this tea, you get a blast of fruit, but not a lot of tea. On a final note, it’s now 4 hours later, and I’m still burping that fruity smell…. Bleah.

lol ok

After I angrily tossed my last cup down the drain, I had to redeem the night by trying another new (to me) tea. I chose Té de Frutas! I’ve never had a decaffeinated tea before. I don’t know why truthfully since even the slightest bit of caffeine heightens my anxiety and elevates my heart rate in a not-so-cute manner(, but will that ever stop me from drinking vanilla lattes etc, nah), so when I received this in my 福袋, I admit I was sort of wary.

lol yeah. My fears were proven wrong, and I am now wondering when I will meet a Lupicia tea I’ll actually dislike? It’s a black tea with nice fruity undertones. I’ve never had a lychee berry before, so I am not sure what taste I am looking for, but the peaches and strawberries come out well. This should probably be my new nighttime tea, ah.

Lupicia is so good at creating delicious smelling teas. I just can’t resist trying them out. This one smells like a lychee fruit party to end all parties. Unfortunately, when I made it hot, it had that flavor that I can only define as “decaf”…

Good news is, it’s great cold-brewed! The lychee and strawberry flavors really come through for a tasty tea. Rating is for cold-brewed, only.

Does anyone else know what I mean by “decaf” taste? It’s sort of a weird texture/perfume taste. Am I imagining things?

I got this tea (and 7 other blends) for my birthday, and last night I served it to our guests after dinner. It was well-received by all. I’m surprised by how much I like this, since I’m not usually a fan of lychee, but it works somehow. I always imagined decaf teas to taste a little weak, but this tasted very flavorful.

Will probably mix it with some Russian Morning Tea from Kusmi if I need a kick in caffeine.

Sipdown!! (175)

This cup has much more lychee flavor than the last. If I didn’t know any better, I would assume I was drinking a straight lychee tea with no other flavors. It is a great tasting tea, I just wished it delivered on what it promised. Nonetheless, I am happy to have tried it and may even restock when I get my cupboard under control (though I believe that means I have to go to San Francisco). Thank you for sharing, Kat_Maria!!

It’s been a bummer of a day. I just haven’t felt up to doing much aside from resting due to pain and insomnia. I woke up from a nap though, which was really nice. I don’t think I need any more caffeine for the rest of the day, so I thought I’d check out this tea I got last week.

In the tin, this has a very intense fruit aroma of strawberry, peach and lychee. I decided to steep this for 3 minutes according to package directions. The flavor of the tea is definitely a lot more delicate than the aroma of it. Thankfully this doesn’t have the bitterness of some decaf teas I’ve tried, but I was hoping for a little more of a flavor punch. I’m getting a bit of strawberry and peach but the lychee is difficult to find and something is a tad astringent about the whole deal. A pinch of sugar was helpful. Still, I have pretty low expectations when it comes to decaf black teas and overall I think this is o.k.

I decided to stick some in the fridge and cold brew it overnight in the Lupicia handy cooler. Maybe that will help bring out some of the flavor a bit more?

I just picked this one up for myself yesterday. I really wish they made a non-decaf version. I’d like to know how the cold brew turns out!

I’ll post another note about the cold brew tomorrow :)

While I like this tea a little bit more than Lupicia’s Lychee, it is not anything particularly striking my fancy. It has all these nice fruit in there but somehow it is kind of… boring. Like an aunt’s birthday party kind of boring. You know, there’s all these good homemade pastries and cakes but then… damn, does it drag and the clock must have frozen!

Mabe it’s because its decaf? It’s good to have a decaf tea that pretends to be a black blend though, once in a while every tea drinker needs something like that.

I think I’ll move on to some oolongs soon today. It’s time!
