My first Lupicia tea! I split an order with the amazing mj1851 and she shipped it out to me 7 days ago, telling me it would take 2-3 weeks. It came early: awesome! The box was really beat up but the content was not: bonus!

The dry leaf aroma is out of this world. I just think of fruit drenched in syrup, and I also of grenadine. The liquid form is just as sweet, but the addition of the malt of the base makes it even better. As soon as it hits my tongue, I think honey, and jam. It’s hard to describe the fruit flavour…Strawberries? Cherries? Something like pineapple? I bet this would make an awesome cold brew.

Wooo I’m glad it got there early! I’ve been holding off on trying any because it seemed like cruel and unusual punishment for you to be reading reviews for our order while having to wait weeks for yours to arrive :-)

Lolll omg I love you! You were absolutely right to do that, and thank you for being such a nice person. You just get it :P Seems unfair that I’m the one posting the first review, since you did all the work! Btw, I gave my mother a bit of Butiki’s Raspberry Truffle that you sent me, because when I mentionned it she started getting very agitated and bright eyed, so your generosity is spreading even further than you thought. Thank you so much for doing all of this, it really means a lot. EVERYONE: mj1851 is the bomb!

Haha, not unfair at all! I’m more than happy for you to post the first review. I’m glad your Mom got to share in the tea love too! I hope she liked it :-). And, also Virgnia is generous to a fault! We may have a mutual admiration club going but that doesn’t diminish the truthfulness of that statement.

Bio

I was introduced to the world of tea after trying to find a way to stop binging on sugar at night (I have a bit of insomnia). Then I had the brilliant idea of going to David’s Tea to get some sweet dessert-y teas to replace all the crap I was eating, whilst still satisfying my sweet tooth.

And then I tried an Oolong and I was done for.

So this is me, exploring the world of tea with excitement, spending way too much money on it, drinking impressive amounts of it, and although I do love flavoured teas, I am now beginning to try high quality straight teas, and trying to learn as much as I can. I have rarely been so passionate about something so quickly.

My boyfriend thinks I am crazy with all my teas. I actually hide some from him when I get deliveries, just so he won’t panic haha. When he does say something, I just reply that to me, tasting tea is like tasting wine, and it brings me the same kind of joy as eating chocolate or eating fine food. Only better.

Flavours I Like: Most fruits, Cinnamon, Licorice, Cloves, Pepper, Caramel, Vanilla, Chocolate, Cardamom, Floral Teas, Honey, Coffee, Pastry/Bread, Smoky, Woody

Flavours I dislike: strong vegetal tastes (a little is ok), Rooibos, Mate, Lemon, Raspberry (for the most part), Orange, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Overpowering Mint,

Other than that, un-related to tea, I love make-up artistry, parrots and birds (in real life, not objects lol), crime and trial stories, flowers, baking, wine, reading, collecting teapots and mugs and stand-up comedy.

I love Dexter, Orange is the New Black, Hannibal, all reality food and cooking series…

As I’m re-reading this I can’t help but to notice how I love extra dark things and extra happy things with no real middle. Hm. xD “I like staying up to date on murder trials…and drinking tea while bird watching!” I’m NOT weird, I swear. :)
