I tried this first in a sample and was pretty amazed by it. When I first tasted it, I was perplexed enough by the flavor to have to look it up on the site; it was so sweet and tangy. The citrus flavor is definitely the primary flavor to me, but what got me was that sneaky mango aroma with it. Quite different! I thought it was pretty good, but didn’t think much more of it at the time—until a week later, where I was coming home from a long night at work and suddenly craved it. Now I keep a bag around at all times—it’s very relaxing to drink before sleeping, and the sweet and tanginess of it can really curve the periodic sweet tooth. The flavor definitely may not be for everyone, because it is rather strong. But I’d highly suggest trying it at least once to anyone!

Interesting – I think this is pretty vile hot, but that it’s an AMAZING tea cold-steeped. The only reason I bought it was because they had iced samples in the store and it was simply too tasty to resist.

This is another sample that TheTeaFairy sent me. Thank you!!!
Once again she chose one that I didn’t even notice. This too is REALLY good. I like red rooibos, I don’t have any problem with it. This one is a fruity green rooibos. It tastes like a tisane to me, I didn’t really get any rooibos at all. It’s a beautiful orange color, mango, fruity, FANTASTIC.
I JUST placed another Lupicia order tonight. I see a 3rd one in my future…. this is insane, but their teas are really good.

This is one of my favouites! Mother buys this all the time and I always try to sneak some out of her tea stash hehe :)

TheTeaFairy

Glad you enjoyed this one too :-)

Dexter

jump62359 – I’m blaming you for the order I placed tonight :)) wanting to try your favorite Golden Honey Dew somehow ended up as a 13 tea order – and I didn’t include this or the plum oolong – I see another order happening soon…
Fairy – I don’t think that I SHOULD like this, but I do – thank you. :))

Dude, I’ve been going to Lupicia for nearly 10 years because I love them so much. But only now am I venturing out of my usual teas! This, the honey dew, and like 2 or 3 other teas are the only ones I’d purchase. I feel like you’ve already tried more teas from them than I have!
But enjoy the teas! I’ll definitely be looking out for your notes. I’ll see which ones I’ll have to purchase the next time I’m in the City :)

Sil

I’ll have to get you to send some of this my way dex…pretty sure i haven’t tried this one. Unless i missed logging it

TeaBrat

oh, you inspired me, maybe I will make some of this for later it is really good iced as well!

Dexter

Sorry Sil, I don’t have this – I got my sample from TheTeaFairy – I also didn’t order it last night. LOL unless another order happens in the next few day….. (Shrug)

Sil

Don’t stress dexter….I’m clearly not in need of any tea these days :)

This tea is terribly pretty, which is part of the catch for me, as I store them in glass-lidded, magnetic tins stuck to my fridge door. I’m not sure what the striking little blue petals are, there are yellow petals and little chunks of mango amongst the green roobois. I haven’t had green roobois before . I had a temporary flirtation with red roobois in high school. That was a while ago. A very good while ago.

This tea also smells amazing dry, another draw card. There is mellow citrus but more of something else, like a heady cross between jubes and a dark liquor like brandy.

I brewed it with the kettle slightly off the boil, for the time it took to run some snoseal around the toes of my boots. This is an official measure of tea steeping time. The result was subtle. Too subtle? I popped the infuser back in and left it there while I lured little cups in sequence. Eventually the main thing to come out was orange citrus, it never got woody or bitter. Couldn’t really find the mango at all!

Memily

Ha! I use those magnetic tins too :D

Hard won little tins, my god, I had to go to Ikea for those.

This was a bagged offering I grabbed from a tea box a while back, and while I was working on dinner yesterday, figured I’d brew it up.

The dry bag smells nothing like what I was expecting! It smells like lemon cream and is heavenly! I could seriously keep this bag and just like give it a good sniff once in a while. But that’s kind of weird, so I’ll hold off.

The flavor is a sweet creamy lemon, with a touch of mango. It’s very gentle, and just slightly tropical. The rooibos is pretty much a non existent flavor, so this is a delicious caffeine-free/rooibos option for me!

It’s also fantastic iced. Very fresh and refreshing. Yum!

Now this is a multiple personality tea! The rest of Anna´s sample and she had warned me she had been baffled by it. I tried this first cold, and cold brewed and sweetened and it was FABULOUS. But Anna had tried it hot and not liked it, but seriously if so good cold how bad could it get when made hot? I decided to try it hot.

And I really really do not like it when made with boiling water. A total Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde tea. It is sour somehow (how?!?), there is a very strong peach (it should be mango, mango is what they say but it tastes like peach to me!) flavour bordering on artificial and a orange rind taste (maybe this is the culprit). I truly did not like it

I am going to leave the rating as it was, because a tea should be judged by its optimal brewing method – but if I had to compare I would rate it about 85 when cold brewed and maybe 40 or 50 when brewed hot. Isn´t it weird?

Hahaha, right? It’s so weird. But I guess it’s not too much of a sacrifice to just cold-steep this. I’m glad I’m not the only one.

cteresa

It is insane, I do not understand at all where the sourness (and it is sour) is coming from or could possibly be.

But it is so lovely cold..

Anna

Tell me if you want some more for the summer, by the way – I have a whole bag!

cteresa

Thanks, but seriously I am want instead to try cold a lot of likely little bits and ends of teas I got here. I want to do a major clear of all those little bits I am hoarding “use what you have” ( getting a lot counter space and tins to air for new teas, though this is dangerous, I am going oh, my teas, my hoard……)

Anna

Ugh, I know – I have so much tea to clear out… before I can buy more tea!

cteresa

My mantra right now is “use what you have” and it´s good, but it´s better for things which do not run out! I am feeling a bit dubious about my sucess when i finish something I love, kinda of rethinking it.

I cant say how accurate this review will be as I mixed one tea bag of the Jardin Sauvage by Lupicia with one large tea bag of Pau D’Arco by Natures Sunshine. I can however state that the Jardin added a nice hint of flavor to the other (which is what I was hoping for). Alone, the Pau D’Arco has a very earthy/barky flavor, which I rather enjoy. However, the Jardin gave it a more warm/tropical flavor. I detected a hint of citrus among other fruit and it complimented my earthy tea very well.

This is a very nice rooibos tea~

The deep-sweet mango flavor complements the rooibos well. It is a mellow fruity flavor that has more presence than the rooibos but it isn’t overpowering.

On a personal note, I like the fruitiness, but I probably wouldn’t want to drink this everyday. It would be nice to drink once in a while, as a treat or break from my other rooibos/herbal teas.
