Non-sipdown cupboard removal: 13 [I sent the last of Lupicia’s Watermelon Barley off to Roswell Strange, although it’s been two weeks and has yet to arrive… :( ]
It annoys me when I find teas that are almost gone, but I haven’t written a note. Although who knows – I have probably hundreds of unposted reviews sitting in email drafts, and maybe it’s in there somewhere.
Either way, this is much better than I could have expected. Not only strawberry, but there’s a delicious sweet nuttiness here – it’s actually quite incredibly delicious. I also feel like I’m both smelling and tasting coconut, but it would have to be a flavouring, as there are no coconut pieces visible, nor is there any sign of rancidity. I knew I had enjoyed this one, but I didn’t remember it being this amazing. It’s really boggling my mind how well the majority of these teas are holding up. I genuinely expected to be quite disappointed in myself, but I’d say 90% are good enough that I want to still drink them – because they’re good, not just for nostalgia. This one may be a sipdown soon though, there’s one, maaaybe two cups left in the package.
