Oh my goodness. I have been waiting forever for this to come back into stock.
They don’t carry this particular flavor in my local Lupicia store and rum raisin was always one of my favorite ice creams. Everything is better with rum, isn’t it? I used to make lots of rum balls during Christmas time and they are so festive!
I ended up ordering it from their site with a few other things and paid too much money in shipping because I didn’t want to spend $60 on tea. :(
The smell when you open the bag is yummy! I steeped this via regular method for around 3 minutes.
I suppose I should be grateful but I felt this came up a little light on the flavor. My cup, after steeping was a dark orange. Not sure about the base of this tea, I am thinking a ceylon perhaps. The aroma is sufficiently boozy with a bit of fruit but it might have needed a touch of sugar, I will try that next time along with using more leaf.
So far I am finding it a decent dessert tea, especially with soymilk added, but it did not quite live up to my hopeful expectations.
