I did well with sipdowns today, so I figured as a treat I would steep up some teas that I haven’t had a chance to try yet! This one is from the group order at the end of last year.
Oh my goodness, I love it so much! Lupicia does some amazing strawberry teas, and this is no exception. The base is quite dark and brisk, as it has some CTC leaves mixed in, but it’s not bitter. It creates a nice, malty foundation for the scrumptious sweet-tart strawberry flavor! I do get a little hint of creamy, buttery cake here as well, though not much.
I’m sure they likely intend this to be drunk with milk, but that’s not generally my style. I’ll have to try it next time though, as the strong base could definitely handle it!
