From Lupicia

Decadent with chocolate on the nose finishing with the juicy tart flavor of ripe strawberries. The rich flavors of puer tea and chocolate also work wonderfully with milk.

This tea is awesome! It has a great balance of flavors of the chocolate/strawberry and puer. I love how this tea doesnt have that distinct puer flavor and that additional flavors can come through. I like the deep chocolate flavor and the sweet strawberry finish to it. This is a great tea :)

I was excited to drink this today, a good start to what is likely going to be an exciting and hopefully a sting free day, but unfortunately it seems to have fallen flat. The tea is in a bag as a sample sent by Lupicia. It isn’t super old, but isn’t brand new either. It smells great, but has this flat cardboard like taste. It has been so long since I have had it that I don’t remember what my steeping parameters were. I could have looked it up, but I was busy prepping everything for the day and took a wrong guess. I’m now waiting for my drill to charge which gives me a few free moments to write a tasting note.

What am I so excited about today…..? I get to do my first cut out! In beekeeper talk, it’s when you cut a hive out of where it isn’t supposed to be. I keep my hive at a neighbor’s family farm and their neighbors told me they just bought an old trailer that has bees living in the wall. I went to check it out and it’s a small colony of honey bees, the drywall is pulled off exposing the hive and it’s perfect for my first cut out! I’m getting all my extra hive equipment set up and planning my strategy of removal and installation into their new home. Oh the things I find thrilling!


Sounds really interesting. I know absolutely nothing about beekeeping but it always seems very pastoral. :)


I love it! I used to have my hive in my front yard and enjoyed sitting and watching my girls going about their work bringing in pollen and all, but we changed the yard around so I keep my hive at another location where it’s a better set up.
I was a little nervous yesterday, but the installation went really well. The bees were super gentle after just a little puff of smoke and I’m now the proud keeper of two hives!

Lupicia had this one in-store this week when I went to buy more stuff from them. You know I was a little nervous to try Pu’erh given the “it tastes fishy” comments I’ve heard from people. But actually this one was quite nice. Someone else on here mentioned, it’s like “Pu’erh with training wheels” – which I think is a good comment. It was quite nice, the blend of chocolate and strawberries was mild and it’s holding back any sort of intense gross flavour – so I think it was a good intro :) I’m gonna try a more “true” pu’erh soon and see if I like it or if I think it’s gross. I’m nervous about it for some reason. I think because I smelled one at Lupicia and it smelled like a fish market! This one certainly didn’t and seems to be holding back the crazy well. A good intro.

This is a standard for me, one I will usually have on hand. Ridiculously over the top, luscious, fruity with lots of chocolate flavor. Like drinking chocolate-covered strawberries. Seriously. If you love puerh, you may be disappointed, as there is only a subtle earthiness coming through from the tea, almost obliterated by the chocolate and strawberry flavors. Works for me, though! One of my favorite dessert teas, wonderful with milk.

It’s hard to get either chocolate or strawberry flavor down right, and this tea does both in one lovely, creamy, natural-tasting combination. And, accounting for the minor difference of a puerh vs. black tea base, it’s an almost perfect rendition of a long lost favorite, Butiki’s Red Queen Cupcake. I never thought I’d encounter another blend with all the things I loved about it again! That was a tea I enjoyed over the holiday season too, a couple of years back. The cold weather makes these richer, flavored teas more enjoyable. And, although both might have the same base, this one knocks Sunny Fruits way out of the park.

Trying this tea was enough to remind me to return and start logging my teas again. It’s been a busy few months (as usual) but life is pretty good. I’m glad to see many familiar names still active around here, and hope everyone is doing well!

This was a sample from the February mailer. I really liked the strawberry and chocolate notes in this tea, but the puer base still reminds me of drinking rubber. The reviews seemed to say that for the most part it was hidden and I would agree, but every once in a while I got a hint of it. I enjoyed the cup but not something I need to visit very often.


See that’s just it. even in small hints, once you taste rubber, you can’t un-taste it.


I agree, but I really loved the strawberry flavor in this one. If they could pair the strawberry flavor with say a keemun this would be my favorite flavored tea.

[Backlog] – I’ll admit that I’m not the biggest fan of puerh. It’s one of those teas that my tastebuds can’t seem to enjoy. Most of the puerh teas I’ve tried seemed too dusty, earthy and the very worst, fishy! I’ve personally found that there are so many teas out there that I enjoy more so I haven’t gone out of my way to find puerh. I have high hopes for this blend, though, as it’s supposed to have notes of chocolate and strawberry. Lupicia does fruit flavoring quite well, in my experience, so I bet this will be a tasty cup.

Ooh, this is lovely! The beginning of the sip offers a strong chocolate flavor and a bright strawberry. It reminds me a little bit of a melted chocolate bar with strawberry jam. How delicious! The puerh is actually so far in the background that I can’t truly taste it. I suppose it does come out at the end of the sip as something a bit dry and dark. If I gulp the tea, the puerh does become more present. This is where the blend falls flat.. but only because I don’t like puerh. Hah! The tea base does work with the flavorings, though.

I recommend this tea for anyone who loves the combination of strawberry and chocolate. Lupicia could not have made a more perfect blend of the two. Those who enjoy puerh might be a little disappointed as it’s not terribly strong, but really.. it’s all about the chocolate and strawberry!

Ooooo quite good! Very fitting with my egg on toast. Woodsy, slight twiggy, chocolate, strawberry. Goes down smoothly. Good earthy undertones that flow so well with the rest of the flavors. I gave it a 4 minute steep time but it tasted just fine at 3.

Love this one!

A longtime perennial in my tea cabinet, and one of my favorite Lupicia teas, despite my general dislike for puer. There seem to be real dried strawberries and cocoa nibs blended in there, which is amazing! It’s worth brewing for a full three minutes to really bring out the smoky-bitter chocolate and puer flavors.

Taken straight, this tea is as dark as coffee, and the bitter cocoa flavor comes through strongly. It combines with the smokiness of the puer for an almost coffeelike experience, although milder and (to this non-coffee-drinker) much more palatable. The strawberry just floats around subtly as a warm, pleasant aftertaste in the mouth.

Add a dash of sugar and cream, however, and the whole character of the drink is transformed. The sweet strawberry flavor leaps to the fore, and the cocoa notes combine with milk to create a texture and flavor almost like fruity hot chocolate. The puer recedes to a background hint, just enough to give it a little personality.

I enjoy it either way, but drunk as a latte, it’s my go-to dessert tea for relaxing and playing video games on a chilly evening.

One teabag yielded a strong 8oz steep, then two milder 8oz steeps. The fourth steep has color but not a lot of flavor. First steep is seedy/jammy, earthy toast. Second is a light fruity strawberry. Third is a mild pu-erh tea. Fourth is a bit earthy water.
