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.

Today was a sipdown of this amazing tea. It has become one of my favourites and I welcome it back into my cupboard anytime.

You’ve sold me on trying this next time I order from them!

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
882 tasting notes

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.

I had no idea what to expect for this one, but I assumed it was a black/caffeinated tea. I’m glad it was rooibos, though, because the rooibos makes it nice and sweet.

Strong fruity flavours, distinctly fresh mango juice and apricot. There might be some other stonefruits, but the mango is most notable. The base is sweet and there are not tart/sour notes in this at all. Lupicia did a fruity herbal blend well. M little pyramid bag was in for 6 minutes and did not oversteep, but was very flavourful. I will be ordering these when I order from Lupicia, as this is the best mango flavoured tea I’ve ever had.

drank Ginger & Lemon Myrtle by Lupicia
1870 tasting notes

I like the ginger + lemony herb combo. I should keep this around for when I’m sick. It actually tastes like there is lemon zest in the tea, so the lemon myrtle must be very fresh. The ginger could be spicier/stronger, but it is enjoyable anyway. Simple, soothing, and completely caffeine free.

This is a very tasty black tea. There is a nice balance between the chocolate flavors and the berry flavors. It does not come off as tasting artificial at all. It is good.

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

Flavors: Berry, Chocolate

drank The au Chocolat by Lupicia
1731 tasting notes

There is definitely a note of bittersweet chocolate to this tea. It would be more to my tastes if it was more sweet and less like bittersweet choclate. There id definitely a chocolate note. I amnot really sure what type of chocolate they add to this. Still it is fairly tasty. As I recall last time I ordered from Lupica they were out of this and I had wanted to try it. Got it yesterday in what was my second or third order with Lupica. I like their teas so I will order again.

I got this one in my Lupicia happy bag. It’s a decent Darjeeling, fruity a little astringent with the requisite first flush herbaceousness. It’s very light for my tastes—I’m more of a second flush fan in general, and this is no exception. I’m enjoying it will enough, but it won’t be a restock.

drank Orange & Ginger by Lupicia
1904 tasting notes

Sipdown. While I found this tea too harsh to drink plain, surprisingly, given the flavours, adding milk improved it significantly. Ginger seems to dominate, but it’s a sweet, mild ginger with a candied citrus peel undertone. And added bonus is that it’s strong enough to wake me up for my 5 am shifts.

Not a tea I would drink plain – the base is a very strong CTC with an astringent edge. The ginger and citrus notes are relatively mild in comparison.

I’ll have to try it with milk to see if that brings out the flavour better.

drank Anuenue by Lupicia

Not much info on this tea besides it being a 7 colored leaf green. I got this in the Hawaii collection set from Lupicia in Honolulu.

Admittedly, this tea is old. The leaf is pretty with a mix of cornflowers, red flowers, rose petals, and yellow curly things. Steeping, it smells like licorice. The flavor is a big mix of floral, sharp grassy sencha, sugary candy, and mystery fruit. Papaya?

Boiling 1 min, 0 sec 6 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Orzo by Lupicia

This one is so good I had two cups to start my Monday at work. It brews up a beautiful dark brown, almost black. The scent and the flavour are so toasty and just delicious. I just love this one.

We picked up some when we visited California this last summer, then we got back and I ended up ordering four more packages. I just can’t be without this one. I love it cold brewed and hot. There is just no downside to this tea (well, barley).

I had my last little bit of this for my morning cup. Hello Friday, you wonderful creature.
When I first really started drinking teas I was skeptical of grape teas, but it turns out they are fresh and lovely. This was a lovely thing to have in my cupboard for as long as I did, but now it is a sipdown!
