From Lupicia

The sweet kumquat peel brings out a refreshing briskness in this Nilgiri black tea blend.

Its not often I like flavored tea, but this is actually really good! A delicious slightly bitter taste makes this tea fairly accurately named.

I actually bought the tea for the aroma, and I am happy with the result. This is better than any ordinary “orange” flavored tea.

More Lupicia because I gave in and visited the store again. This was one of their seasonal teas that I really kicked myself for not getting last time, so of course I came home with it this time.

The blend is black tea with kumquat peel. Kumquat is one of my favorite hard-to-find fruits, and this tea captures that tart, sweet, citrus fragrance perfectly. The tea brews up to an orange amber color, and the tea base is clean and crisp-tasting. In a hot brew, the kumquat zing is delicious and quite sweet, in a way that reminds me of Korean citron tea, which has honey as well as citrus peels in it. Cold brew is less sweet and very refreshing.

I think I’ve been giving out a lot of high ratings lately, but I don’t feel that I’m being indiscriminate, maybe it just means I’ve gotten better at finding what I like!

Ooh, this one sounds good. I’ll have to consider it for my Lupicia order…

LOL, that is going to be the most epically well-researched order at this rate!

Thanks to SFTGFOP for sending me a sample of this tea! I really do love citrus teas.
This tea has a wonderful citrus aroma that is pervasive throughout, yet never overwhelms the scent or flavor of the tea. The tea is light and mellow with little to no astringency. It really does have a distinct kumquat flavor which comes from the note of rind. There is no artificial or bitter lingering quality to this cup. It’s yum.
