The very last untried Lupicia holiday tea! The tin features a trio of children – one singing, one playing a harp, and one playing an oboe or clarinet. Love the stained glass style art on these! The tea itself appears to be the mix of whole leaf and CTC that Lupicia uses in a lot of their flavored blacks. There are also pieces of red rose petals and small coconut shreds. Dry scent reminds me of those strawberry candies with the juice centers that are wrapped in the strawberry printed plastic.
Once steeped, the tea smells of strawberry candy and french vanilla ice cream. Hmm… This one is just okay. I can actually taste the base tea more than the flavoring, and it’s a somewhat earthy and woody black tea. There’s just a little bit of strawberry candy flavor and a tiny touch of cream. Meh!
