drank Caramele by Lupicia
411 tasting notes

the instructions on this one are a little odd. I was always annoyed at SpecialTeas for assuming that I’d be drinking a 6oz cup rather than an 8oz cup. And Lupicia apparently thinks that 6oz is WAY too much, they’re prescribing a 5oz cup.

Seriously?

Anyway, per the directions, it’s 2.5-3grams of tea per 5oz cup of water. Oy. but sure, I’ll try it.

first sip – no additives. i can taste the almond, and a little floral taste that together taste a little like caramel. Not bad.

So I added some sweetener. HELLO CARAMEL! Nom.

Next cup I tried some milk. It was nice, but not necessary.

This one is lovely with sweetener and when you use a lot of leaf. I’ll have to play with it more to see if I really have to use that much leaf every time.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
