Ok, I’ll take a break from Lupicia until mj1851 posts some of her own reviews, and I’ll move on to this lovely blend that I’ve just been dying to try. This a sample from my girl mj1851, but I won’t lie: I almost bought it about 5 times before trying to knock some sense into myself like “But you have some coming! STOP!”
The moment is here! I really couldn’t tell you anything about the dry leaf other than it looks good and it smells good, as I was in way too much of a hurry to pour this into my mouth as quickly as possible. The cup I’m holding smells divine: malt, intense honey and raw sugar. As it hits my tongue, the malt is very pleasant, and although it is undeniably there, the honey notes are not as strong as I expected. Is there Darjeeling in this? There’s something that would make me think so, towards the end of the sip. There’s a pleasant nuttiness that wraps itself around the other flavours. The slight astringency makes it even more interesting.
I like it a lot. Add to cart.
