First time trying this even though I’ve had it for almost a year. Whoops.
I saw the base look quite fine, so I knocked 30 seconds off of the steep. Tasting it, I think it might be the same base as Jingle Bells?
Anyway, I’m a bit underwhelmed. This has a fairly strong syrupy blueberry aroma that reminds me of their Cassis & Blueberry, but the flavor is actually very light. The base makes itself known with woody and earthy notes, but the blueberry itself is a bit too subtle to stand up to it. It’s a deep jammy blueberry, but there’s not enough of it.
It’s not bad per se, but not my favorite from Lupicia. Too bad the US website no longer carries Cassis & Blueberry…
