drank La Belle Epoque by Lupicia
116 tasting notes

Interesting blend; I can taste the darjeeling with hints of other leaves. This is a smooth, lightly warm-sweet tea.

2017 Note: Lupicia also has a special premium line of their teas under the umbrella term “La Belle Epoque”. When I was visiting Japan, I was not able to find Emerald Earl Grey because it is now part of the La Belle Epoque line and only one of their branches carry this line (Jiyugaoka branch). You can order this special line of teas on the Japanese Lupicia website but they only ship to Japanese addresses.

I don’t have a sensitive palate but I do tend to shy away from harsh and bitter flavors. For instance, I can’t stand raw celery and olives – the smell/taste is way too intense. I find coffee to be too muddy/earthy, tea is light and crisp.

I find plain, black tea to be either too bitter or a bit too bland – unless I’m adding cream and sugar. I love flavored black teas; flavored rooibos is great as an evening drink; and light, grassy green teas are wonderful. Oolong and Pu-erh teas are good too but haven’t had as much exposure to them. White teas I’m still on the fence – one day I hope I’ll find one that I’ll like. I don’t like the spiced teas (e.g. chai)

My Grading Scale:
80-100 – Excellent Teas. These are the Teas I crave all the time, even when trying out new teas.

60-79 – Good Teas. I drink these occasionally.

50-59 – Passing Grade. These are worth a try again

Below 50 – Would not recommend, and probably will never try again
