I’m not into flavoured tea much anymore…I still have a stash but got rid of lots of them recently. Still purging, only very few will make the cut.
Although I think it’s a pretty decent one, this one wont make it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s very pleasing and I like it. I’ve been drinking tea for a looong time and with all the teas I have, I’m aiming torwards drinking only spectacular ones. Flavoured teas in general don’t come across as being spectacular to me. Needs to be more than “Ok” and “good” for me to keep a tea around. And that’s why you keep seeing those high ratings from me. I drink and review my very best most of the time.
I’m reviewing this one cause Lupicia offers a good product and it might be helpful to some.
This is a plum tea with lots of floral notes.
While hot, I don’t get much out of it, gets a lot better at a lukewarm temperature for me. I get nice buttery and floral notes, topped by a sweet ripe plum fruitiness. To me, plum is a floral fruit, so fragrant, a bit like a lychee is. Maybe that’s one of the reasons they both pair so well with green oolong.
I think this is above average for a flavoured tea.
And I may not have a whole lot left, but the rest is going to you Dexter my dear tea buddy and Steepster friend cause I know how much you like it :-)
