From Lupicia

Flavored with scents of spicy citrus, tea reminds you of the Hawaiian volcano and ocean.

Resteeped! As expected, it’s much more subtle. Still a lovely amber hue, but a bit fainter. The taste is like that as well. It’s lost a bit of its smokiness…more like banked embers still glowing and winking, not hissing and spitting and erupting in flame.

The delicate floral notes that were detectable pretty much only through the aroma are now completely gone. It’s definitely nice, though. I don’t mind.

In summary, if the first steep reminds you of tropical volcanos, the resteep is more like a photograph. On first steep, you’re completely there and savoring the moment, living the experience out and letting the lava flow. On resteep, you’re looking at photos of your last vacation and reminiscing about how great it was. :)

I, too, resteeped this tea. I also added a touch of agave and it was quite nice. It really toned down the intensity of the flavor but I still prefer it without the added agave. This tea is quite an experience. I’m so sad I only bought a sample sized container of it as I only have enough for one or two cups left.

Advent from Dustin Day 2
Drank this with an English muffin covered in the Bonne Maman advent jam of the day.
Black tea. Lemon. Perhaps some other kind of fruit that I can’t identify.

Cameron B.

You’re doing Bonne Maman, too?! Yaaaaay! :D

Dustin

I’m having regrets that I didn’t snag one of those Bonne Maman advents from World Market when I was there!

Cameron- Yes, I’m obsessed with it so far!
Dustin- Maybe they have a couple left! Definitely worth trying.

I had my eye on the Bonne Maman calendar too, but it was so expensive that I decided to skip it. Granted, I only saw it online a few days ago after World Market and Bonne Maman were both already sold out, so the cost was $80. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for this one next year!

YEAH! A third person with the jam advent! haha

Kilauea volcano has been erupting this week and has made a lake of lava. It totally blows my mind. A real lake of lava, not the CGI casually used lava rivers that Star Wars seems to be so fond of. Right now it’s as deep as a 44 story building is tall and growing. It’s amazing!

Seemed like the appropriate and perfect occasion to break out this tea. I’ve had it around for a while and never really got into it, but have enjoyed a cup now and then. It has an almost preserved orange flavor. I always compare it to the preserved orange peel candies at Asian food markets. It’s very specific flavor in my mind. A touch of lemon to brighten and a hint of smoke for base notes. It’s okay, but it’s not what I’d think of if I were doing a volcano inspired tea. I’d have fire and spice and smoke. Maybe some coconut or passionfruit or mango for the Hawaii tie in. Citrus just doesn’t scream HAWAII to me. They have SO much delicious fruit there. Citrus seems so… Florida. Apple is Washington, strawberry is California, peaches is Georgia and so on. Anyways, I’m glad the volcano isn’t threatening people or lives of any type unlike the eruption a few years back with the slow motion lava wave rolling over the landscape and engulfing jungle and homes.

That mug has character.

All the skeletaldropkick mugs are full of character! The artist has a defined style that I really dig. So far I have 3 of her mugs.
