3217 Tasting Notes
Sad sipdown. I’ve been craving this tea all week, because something at work has been smelling like it. Clearly I need to get more sooner rather than later, if I’ve been craving it. Sigh. Someone in the Toronto area will place a Lupicia order soon… right?
And thanks again to VariaTea for the rest of her pouch. It was thoroughly enjoyed.
Sipdown! Thanks Sil!
Interesting to try this tea, but I didn’t guess I’d be a big fan, and I was right. It’s bold and brisk (as would be expected from a tea intended for an antarctic expedition), and although my mug of it is not astringent, I prefer a bit of a smoother, mellower body. Taste-wise, I’m getting a mouthful of malt, and maybe a hint of chocolate, so it’s actually a profile I find reasonable, it’s just a little too bold and plain. Probably good with milk, though :)
Jeez, one single piddly note for this tea, and it’s gone? (I do have it on a list somewhere to write about, which I guessing I’m skipping ahead to now). So yes, sipdown! Also, this tea is really incredibly delicious, and I wish it wasn’t all gone :( I believe when I finished it, I checked the website for it, but I no longer remember whether it was still available…
Not really getting the “pistachio” here, but can certainly tell that there’s some tasty flavouring. This is definitely quite a robust tea though – I would like to try it with a bit of milk of sugar, because I really think it would improve it (not that it’s not tasty otherwise!)
Another tea that I just found kind of flavourless and boring, although to be fair, I am actually sensing a bit of peanut today – it’s just not enough to keep my interest. Probably putting this up on a sale list at some point – I’ve gotta get rid of some of this tea I don’t care for!
