Holiday TTB

There was a single teabag of this tea in the Holiday TTB and I decided to keep it to try out at work, where I have a hot water pot, but find it challenging to brew loose leaf tea at my desk. I sampled it today and found it to be a huge step up from the grocer store bagged tea I usually end up drinking at work! This one had nice big, unbroken leaves visible through the sachet and smelled like some kind of baked fruit dessert. The flavor was good too: a nice smooth black tea base layered with flavors of honey and fruit. (Not really sure what kind of fruit…plums maybe? And apples? It’s definitely coming across as a baked fruit flavor to me, not fresh.) Not my favorite offering from Lupicia, but still quite yummy!

Flavors: Fruity, Honey, Smooth

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ~ C.S. Lewis

I was introduced to loose leaf tea by a roommate in 2012, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon Steepster in 2014 that I discovered a world of tea that went beyond Teavana and the grocery store.

My tastes continue to evolve, but black tea is currently my favorite. I am especially drawn to strong, malty breakfast blends to wake me up in the morning and flavored dessert teas to sip throughout the day.

Just about everything in my cupboard is available to swap, so feel free to ask!
