drank Lanikai by Lupicia
694 tasting notes

I received this in a swap from hapatite. Thank you. I have been quite delayed in getting through some of the samples I received back in Janurary/Feburary. I am glad I am finally getting around to a few of these.

I was so excited to first try another Lupicia tea and then such a rare collection. hapatite was so generous to send me 3 samples from the limited Hawaii collection. This was the first one I tried. I really really wanted to like this one. This for me just didn’t have the right mix. The base was very astringent and the vanilla and fruit didn’t shine through much for me. It might have been the way I brewed this, but this is a no for me.

I started drinking tea while on a 4 month long cycling trip through South America. It seemed to always be a great way to warm up when I was cold and it was always available everywhere. Mate was the big tea of choice down there and it was also a great way to get to know people. When I returned home, my sister introduced me to Teavana and this launched me into the realm of loose leaf tea.
