drank Sakura Houji by Lupicia
307 tasting notes

I’ve been enjoying the bag I got last time I found this in stock. Imagine my surprise to go back to the listing and find it was one of the very first teas I reviewed, but apparently not too favorably! Huh, how things change… or maybe I was wrong on the name of the tea. Who knows.

This tea is has a lovely sweet and mellowly roasted liquor that isn’t too overwhelmingly sweet like some of Lupicia’s other cherry teas, but isn’t very roasted either. It’s a very comforting taste to me and I wish it lasted longer than 2-3 steeps, as I think it’s a limited edition or perhaps seasonal thing. I wasn’t on their website last time I looked.

It reminds me of my love for roasted teas, that’s always good too. Yum.

I get easily excited and tend to get into the habit of collecting things I get really really excited about- books, fountain pens, fragrance, tea and any number of things. Mostly I’m just really excitable.

My favorites are oolongs! Also high for me are greens and ripe pu’erh. But I do like most teas and I’ll try most anything at least once. I just don’t like rooibos, smokey, or banana flavored things.

My name is Christina, but there’s also another Christina with a cat as a profile picture, so I go by Flyawaybirdie.

Feel free to drop me a message anytime. I love messages/letters/etc.

NOTE!: My cupboard is not up to date. Not even close. But it does have a bunch of teas I have pretty substantial quantities of, so I put them in there anyways because I’m unlikely to run out soon. Also, if I wrote a note on it and didn’t include a TTB name or a sipdown note, I’m likely to still have some even if it’s not in my cupboard, so feel free to ask if you want to swap!

Steepsterite since 2014. :D
