AllanK sent me a sample of this tea in our swap that I received the other day! :D Always eager to try more of Lupicia’s fruit teas, especially since I am probably going there this week! So need to try all the samples of their teas that I have in case I find something amazing and wanna pick more up!
This one I don’t feel the need to pick up more of.
I feel like a lot of the fruity black teas from Lupicia aren’t as strong as the fruit teas with oolong bases. Three of my favorite fruit teas from there all have oolong bases. The ones with a black tea base kinda always come off a bit bitter. The fruit flavors don’t seem to hide the base all too well :(
Plus the fruity oolongs always have like a perfume-y feel/taste to them which I really really love! XD
The main flavor in this tea was mango, so of course I compared it to the “Ripe Mango Oolong” which I also adore. And this one hardly compared to the other, sooo I think I’ll stay with the Ripe Mango instead of this.
But I’m glad I got to try this! It’s not bad, but I think it would be better iced than hot. Thank you so much for the sample, AllanK!!
Flavors: Bitter, Mango, Sweet
