I picked up his sample tonight among all the samples kindly sent by Devilish

To me, this mysterious tea has mango and probably tropical fruits.
It’s really very mellow and sweet, just like having a kind of smoothie sirup with water.

The point is for my taste the tea base is really weak to welcome the flavours.This is the kind of tea I would let my daughter have without problem.Pleasant, sweet and not strong at all !

It may be a nice iced tea perhaps.

Thanks Devilish for sahring it with me :)

I haven’t tasted this tea myself yet! Sounds really mysterious… perhaps I should brew it for a longer time given the relatively weak tea base.

Ysaurella

yes it may change a little – I’m looking forward to read your review about it

Backlog:

I found another sampling of this tea in my tea stash. It’s a very unique tea in that it seems like every time I try it, it tastes a little different. This time, I tasted notes of vanilla, banana and hints of spice. A smoothie sort of taste, but, imagine a smoothie with a few spices tossed in just for something a little different.

Tasty.

The aroma of this tea took me back to childhood. My father used to open up a can of “fruit cocktail” and carefully divide everything into 6 identical servings. He had to use a knife to break down the coveted cherries and the grapes into smaller pieces. After about an hour he would triumphantly serve 6 identical bowls up to 6 little maws.

The aroma of cache-cache reminds me of those canned fruit cocktail treats of the Dwight and Mamie era. Cache-cache is a very fruity black tea. It is the opposite of smoke and the opposite of vegetal. It led me on a petite Madeleine moment for which I am grateful. It manages to be both upscale and bargain basement in its affect. It seems like a confection from Rumplemeyer’s (off Central Park and a paradise for children) and, at the same time, something from one of those bashed-up tins that you see your co-workers donating to “Food for the Homeless”. I may be imposing an identity crisis that the tea does not deserve. I think that the tea is perfect for parents and grandparents to serve children at an exquisite tea-party. I also imagine that it will elicit and draw out memories of childhood. The name means “hide and seek” in French, another evocation of childhood.

A heartwarming/heartwrenching description of a memory. Just beautiful!

Haven’t had any of this in awhile, and I only had two bags left, and I’ve been working on a three-day panettone project that I FINALLY stuck in the oven this morning. So a nice, delicate, orange-spiced-black tea really seemed like a good idea first thing in the morning! :D

I love how Lupicia has somehow managed to harness their scent of orange flower so that it isn’t cloying or overpowering in the least. Instead, it’s almost mildly intoxicating. You can see the pink peppercorns, but you can’t really smell them when you first open the package. That doesn’t come until later.

This is another one where Lupicia recommends boiling water for 3-5 minutes. No problem; 5 minutes it is. :)

The first taste is suggestive of more, and also suggestive that just a hint of sugar (maybe 1/2 teaspoon?) would stand it in excellent stead. And it does. (I love honey in tea, but I usually only break it out if I significantly want to alter the flavour of whatever I’m drinking, because it’s got such a distinct flavour of its own.)

Here’s where you smell the pink peppercorn, and slightly taste it as well. It’s not biting or sharp, but it adds a certain zing to that orange/black tea combo. This tea tastes like memories, and is a deep amber in colour that it reaches after about 4 minutes of brewing.

Meanwhile, the panettone is baking up beautifully and is almost done. The house smells heavenly right now. I can’t wait to try it. Happy Festivus, everyone! :D

Couldn’t resist getting this because they don’t tell you what it is. Steeped as suggested 5oz water/3min. The bag weighs 3.22g so I’m expecting a nice strong cup. The smell increases my expectation of that. It looks like it’s black in base and smells heavily of orange and passionfruit or mango.

Yep. It’s a black. The liquor is a very dark translucent brown w/ reddish tints and the aroma is still very fruity.

The flavor is much like the aroma. A smooth, heavily fruity flavored black tea (although now much more passionfruity/mangoy than orangey). A little like unset jello.

Oooh, a mystery tea! How interesting. They should offer a prize for whoever guesses what is in it.

This tea didn’t work for me because there were too many flavours, all of which I didn’t seem to like so much. The tea was decent at first but a few sips later, the flavours tasted stranger. I believe I am not a fan of peppercorn as the sakurambo didn’t work out for my tastebuds either. I tried to sweeten it and still no luck. :(

Your comment about too many flavors sounds like something my mom would say. She doesn’t like blends. The closest she’ll come is French Vanilla.

li-chan

Haha, that is too funny Cofftea. I do like a variety of flavours if they are pleasant ones. Strawberry and Vanilla was good but that is only 2! hmmm..oh, the chai’s have a bunch of flavours and those are heavenly.

This is what I imagine H&S’ Paris would be if Paris removed the vanilla and lemony bergamot. The tea base is unassuming at best and uninspiring at worst which to me means iced tea. Note that I bought this tea for its pretty Christmas tin, the one with the constellation-themed fish. (In my mind I know I bought a $2 sticker for the premium of a tin but Christmas is when I get stupid splurgy.)

I am really, really bad at keeping my cupboard up to date, so that’s on my to do list this weekend. I just took care of deleting ones that I have gotten rid of, but haven’t added the rest. At least I know my cupboard is getting to a place where I like all of the things, and I’m moving out of that “must try everything” stage.

So, I ordered this recently, partly because I was intrigued at the concept of a tea where people taste different things, and partly because I love their tins. At least I admit it. I’m also on a flavored black kick lately, and sort of in a panic since my Butiki stash is dwindling. I do like Lupicia’s flavored teas so at least there’s that.

Anyway, I liked this even more than I anticipated. It was a definite orange/strawberry tea for me, and that is cracking me up since strawberry isn’t on the list of things in the description. I guess they were right!

The Cookie Lady

That’s it…..now I HAVE to try some of this one! You make it sound way too interesting to keep putting it off ;)

donkeytiara

I’m a huge fan of their Decaf Carol they carry at xmas….vanilla and strawberry…like cap’n crunch in a steamy mug!

Marzipan

this tea is from cavocorax in sachet form. brewed, this is like a fruity, tropical tea that doesn’t really come across as a specific fruit. it smells like peach…tastes a little like mango…it’s a little all over the place. i added a little sugar and it really popped! thanks for the sample cavo!
