Mmmmm soooo good. Moderate bodied black tea with flavours of cherry, tree sap, pine needles, and exotic fruits. Nothing overly floral, but it reminds me of a cherry blossom tree or the taste of cherry blossoms themself (the petals are slightly vegetal). The base actually tasted more like a green/black tea blend than black. Really unique, really tasty, and excellent hot and cold.

I bought this in teabag form, but I really appreciate that their sachets are mesh and not paper (does not tear when re-steeped) and it is a very large pyramid. Lots of room for the tea to move around and expand=better tea.

Flavors: Cherry, Cherry Blossom, Pine, Sap

Got this as a free sample in my Lupicia purchase! It definitely smelled peachy—the taste of it is a lot more subdued though. Would probably make a very tasty iced tea.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

drank Golden Osmanthus by Lupicia
331 tasting notes

This is another from my Lupicia happy bag. I’m not usually a fan of green oolongs, but I do enjoy osmanthus. So far I’ve only had this cold-steeped, and I like it pretty well that way. It’s a nice mix of vegetal and floral—mainly from the osmanthus, luckily, and not so much from the oolong—and makes for pretty mellow drinking. It’s not something I’d restock, but I certainly won’t have any trouble finishing up my supply.

drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia
995 tasting notes

I, uh… hm. I have a Melon Oolong from Taiwan and I’m not sure if it is actually the same one everyone is raving about, because it doesn’t have melon pieces, it has candy sugar pieces.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s still delicious. But have I been duped?

Sipdown. Work tea. Pretty nice peach flavor, but not too strong.

drank Té de Frutas by Lupicia

This is a relatively nice tea. I am not really sure what fruits I taste. It comes off tasting just a bit artificial even though I don’t think there are any artificial flavors in there. It is good.

I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 minutes.

Flavors: Fruity

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Ripe Mango Oolong by Lupicia
1572 tasting notes

Coldbrewed 700 mL water, one pyramid sachet. Left the teabag in.

First half of the cup (~10 minutes) is very fruity, sweet, distinctly a very realistic mango. It tastes like mango puree.
Second half of the cup was still lots of mango, but this flavour was accompanied by a nice toasty oolong base. Extremely tasty, and great hold or cold.

Flavors: Fruity, Mango, Sweet, Toasty

Preparation
Iced

Another one from my bag sampler!

When I opened the package I got a nice aroma of dark chocolate. Similar to dragon pearls. Hmm this tea is bold. It has that dark chocolate taste to it similar to the dragon pearls but it also has a smoky, peppery note. I really like this tea and wish I had more of it.

Another one from my bagged sample pack!

This one smells like fresh grass out of the package. The aroma of the tea is sweet and has a veggie or sweet potato aroma to it. The flavor is nice. It’s strong. It reminds me of raw greens.. like spinach or something. I think if I ever get the opportunity to try this again I’ll have to try it at a lower temperature. There is a slight bitter note to it.

More butterscotch than caramel, but still delicious!

I like the little pyramid sachets the tea comes in. I’m very impressed with Lupicia’s flavoured rooibos blends. I’m planning on purchasing a few varieties when I next go to the states and take advantage of the cheaper American shipping.

The rum/butterscotch make it very creamy, sweet, hints of vanilla. It goes really well with the sweet rooibos.

drank Piccolo by Lupicia

I got this in a bagged tea sampler I got for Valentine’s Day :3 I added milk and a tiny bit of sugar. I’m not a huge fan of rooibos but I kind of like this one. The main flavor I’m getting is honey. There is some light, sweet berry notes.

One of the best rooibos blends ever! Ripe and very realistic mango, stonefruits, violets, pear, tangerine, and citrus. Mango and citrus fruits, green rooibos base, no woody/typical rooibos notes at all. The green rooibos lends itself extremely well to this fruity blend.

Flavors: Citrus, Fruity, Mango, Pear, Stonefruits, Sweet, Violet
