I didn’t think this tea was old enough to have lost that much of it’s flavor, but I suppose it wouldn’t (and shouldn’t) surprise me to learn that Lupicia’s fruit flavored teas, which are masterfully and tastily blended, have a bit shorter shelf life than their more inferior contemporaries. That kind of fruit flavor is rare and hard to come by. (By the way, I’ve only had the tea for seven months, which I would consider not that old.)
Anyway, I’ve decided to start testing the waters, so to speak, regarding my caffeine intake. I’m still nursing, but with my little one a bit older now, I wonder if her system has developed enough to be able to handle introducing small amounts of caffeine back into my diet (say, one caffeinated drink per day, and not that much). It seems to be working so far, as she’s shown no trouble with this tea (this is actually a back logged note). I will keep trying! There may be hope!
