2778 Tasting Notes
Current time is 6:30 a.m. Current temprature is 77 degrees outside, 83 in my house, because the world is terrible.
Current (and possibly only) tea is Yume, one of the Lupicia holiday offerings that I like to drink in the summer time.
I am already sweating. I am already uncomfortable. And later today I need to drive a long distance in a car with a wonky air conditioner.
Even the soft fruit and rose flavors of this tea will not help, and I sincerely doubt I’ll be able to bring myself to drink more tea today.
And a summer sipdown!
I know Lupicia thinks this is a holiday blend, but I must respectfully disagree. I think its best as a spring and summer tea. The flavors make the most sense that way.
The good/bad thing about Lupicia is that their tins, while beautiful, are not particularly big. But that allows the tea to be enjoyed and not outstay its welcome.
I feel good about this sipdown, as one of my goals this year was to drink my warm weather teas in the warm weather, so I can focus on the fall flavors without guilt. You know, in a million years when fall arrives.
Before I went to my class I had a cup of this, as I could feel the tiredness start to build, and it helped. (I am learning to knit socks!) and it was pretty darn good.
My initial impression on this one hold true- very nice but not exceptional. Very pretty tin. I am a sucker for a very pretty tin (what do I do with the empty tins? I have a small scrap yard of very pretty tins without purposes and I either need to give them function or get rid of them, and lets be honest, I’m not getting rid of them….)
