111 tasting notes

Sampling this one at a friend’s house! This is one of Lupicia’s exclusive Hawaiian blends, with cocoa powder and macadamia nuts. To me, it tastes a lot like The Au Chocolat—except I might actually like this one better? Which is odd, because I’m not that into nuts. (I don’t mind them, but I don’t usually crave them in a tea blend. Or in chocolate generally!) I think it’s because I find Lupicia’s chocolate flavor to have a certain nutty taste, so it goes really well with the macadamia.

This is a rich tea, with a strong black base and a great dessert-like flavor. If you like chocolate with nuts, you’ll enjoy this one. (Or even if you don’t! I certainly liked it.)

I’m a writer who drinks tea to survive the creative process. A few years ago, I discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I’ve been hoarding all kinds of tea ever since!

My favorite teas change by the day. I usually drink them unsweetened, without milk. I like white and green teas, but I tend to prefer black and oolong these days. Rooibos can be hit-or-miss, same with herbals. (I mostly avoid blends with hibiscus, as I find it too tart, and I’m not a huge mint fan.) But I love when I find a good herbal that I can enjoy when I don’t want caffeine. I’m actively searching for tasty blends with chamomile in them.

I enjoy both flavored and straight teas. Some of my favorite flavors are vanilla, spice, apple, orange, chocolate, and peach. I’m obsessed with ginger. Seriously. I’ve been known to add extra ginger to teas that already have absurd amounts of spice in them. You’ve been warned. ;)
