Tastes like DT’s Cookie but with a black tea base. Caramel and chocolately. Fun plus the darn cute art design on Lupicia’s tins get me every time.

This is one of my new favorite teas. This tea isn’t evocative of pine trees or peppermint of Christmas, no. It’s more like wearing your favorite fuzzy sweater with a butter cookie in hand. Delicious and light with a lingering sweetness.

Afternoon cuppa…or three…with coworkers.

Sample bag from Lupicia newsletter!

Smells almost exactly like Lupicia’s Cookie. The particles are the same small bits as Cookie too, making me wonder if they added the hint of nutty sweetness to make it more complex.

Brews a dark-colored but not especially strong liquor which tastes pretty much like Cookie to me. I don’t pick up the added white chocolate flavor a lot in this blend.

Perhaps a good resolution would be to quit drinking new teas when I’m flying at high speeds in the morning.
Up extra early and off to the races, and by races I mean taking the boyfriend into school early, as he has finals. He’ll be delighted to be done with school, and so will I. Of course, I’d be delighted if he got his car repaired, so he could take himself in, but still….
Impression is favorable, but a lot more tasting is needed. Did I get chocolate and fruit here? And not just the fruits more classically blended with chocolate, like cherries or strawberries. I felt like it was something more interesting than that.
More is required to be sure. Hmmm.

Oh yummy! So sweet and decadent! Even the steeped leaves have an intense sweet smell to them! For some reason I am thinking and tasting popcorn! Ah crap… now all I’m thinking about is popcorn. I can barely even taste the black tea base. It hits my tongue first but is immediately taken over by the white chocolate, and then the popcorn flavor gets the rest.

Another flavored tea?? Yeah, I’m apparently on a roll with these today. For whatever reason, after I rode this morning I decided a cup of dessert tea might be nice. I’d gotten this in my BF order as an afterthought to qualify for free shipping. I’m rather glad I did. There is certainly a gentle tart/sweet apricot in this tea, a creaminess from the white chocolate, and a hint of nuts…. it’s not pronounced, but it’s there… almonds perhaps? In any case, together with a touch of milk and spot of honey, this is exactly what I was looking for in my cup for this moment. Pastry without most of the calories. Interestingly enough, looking at the leaves after the steep, there are some greenish ones interspersed with the brown as well as what looks like CTC….so I’m not quite sure what the base is for this tea, but it suits the flavor well.

Flavors: Apricot, Creamy, Nutty

For some reason Lupicia seems to use a mix of CTC and regular leaf in a lot of their flavored blacks. :P

Also, so jealous! I ordered from Lupicia on Monday and it’s not supposed to get here until this Thursday! Waaah…


…and yours will last longer than mine and then it’ll be my turn to be jealous!

I figured might as well knock off the two christmas teas in my cupboard at the same time. This one is from shmiracles and while i’m happy to try it, it’s also a miss for me as well. I would NEVER have guessed white chocolate and apricot as the flavours in this one. It pretty much tasted like coconut that had fruit mixed in with it. Overall, nothing i need to drink again but i am happy to have another tea tasted under my belt lol

I always buy several bags of these when they go on sale for a limited time around Christmas. The apricot is such a sweet, perfect complement to the white chocolate flavor. This is a favorite tea during a cold winter, with a little milk and honey.

The very generous jump62359 included a sample bag of this along with a few other tasty treats. I’ve never had anything from Lupicia before, but I knew I was in trouble from the moment I took a big whiff of the pyramid-shaped bag. I brewed it up in short order, but found myself too impatient to let it sit and cool. Turns out a slightly scalded tongue was worth it when it comes to this tea. The flavor is nutty and vaguely reminiscent of quality popcorn, with sweet notes playing beneath it from what I assume is the white chocolate. The fruitiness comes out as well, and conjoins with the other tastes to produce a really lovely tea. If this is par for the course in terms of quality, I suspect I’m going to be placing an order with Lupicia very soon.
