Just finished my first cup of this tea and it was yummy. I like that its a Rooibos tea because i love the flavour of rooibos! The pomegranate flavour isnt as strong as i thought it would be but it is very plesant and the vanilla finish is awesome! loooove this tea!

I really like this tea because it is a very smooth plain black tea. I had it with my pancakes this morning and it complimented it very well. :D

drank Lady Grey by Twinings

Never having Lady Grey before, when i saw this at Safeway this morning shopping i couldn’t resist pulling it off the shelf with a big grin on my face! Loads of people have been telling me to try this tea so why not let today be the day!

It smells great! Not as string as an Early Grey would, but it is a plesant light aroma. The flavor reflects the aroma very well. The citrus notes in this tea are very nice and subtle and not overpowering as could be the case with some Earl Greys. This is a nice breakfast tea to have with some toast and jam, yum!

One of Lupicia’s newest teas, Sunny Fruits Puer is an awesome tea! I was a little skeptical of it because I seriously dislike puer. On the few occassions that i have had the pleasure of drinking it i have usually felt ill afterwards BUT NOT THE CASE WITH THIS TEA!

The aroma is fruity with the hints of citrus and an array tropical fruits! The aroma still lingers quite strong even after you brew it! The taste is a wnderful tropical fruity taste with a sweet afternot of citrus! It doesnt even taste like puer at all!

I highly recommend this tea!

Is this the sample that is sent with this month’s newsletter?

Mad_Alyss_14

no, the Chocolate & Strawberry Puer is the sample for the February Newsletter, this one just happened to catch my eye. They alos have a Cinnamon Cookie Puer. Those plus this one are the 3 new flavored puer teas that Lupicia has introduced this month.

drank Peppermint by Twinings

I got this from my god mother as a Christmas present two years ago and haven’t opened it until now since I have sooo much tea lol
I am not too big of a fan of peppermint (I prefer spearmint) But this tea is very relaxing and has a very nice light peppermint flavor, with a sweet after taste.
I think I might have to buy more of this for work since doing so now I am relaxed at my desk XD

Again my co-worker spoiled us with bringing in this tea! The smell is sweet like fresh cherries but it also kind of reminded me of those strawberry sour straws, which is ok in my book. This teas flavor is very good and it matched the smell perfectly! The tea holds its sweetness until the very last drop and it makes you want another cup asap.

Really really really enjoyed this tea! I absolutely love Black Currants so when my co-worker brought this tea to work i couldnt resist! The tin it came in smells amazing and i couldnt wait the 3 mins while it brewed. When i was finally able to take my first sip, i felt like i was in heaven! The flavor did not quite match up to the sweetness of the smell but it was still a wonderful taste. It has no astrigency even after it cools down a bit which is lovely! This is a spectacular tea and i hope all who drink it love it as much as i did!

I really don’t like smokey teas, and i never have, but something possesed me to try this one. Right when the package is opened, the smokey smell attacks your senses. I actually really like how this tea smells, it reminds me of someone bbq-ing outside in their backyard :) The taste can be a bit overwhelming but the after taste is quite delightful! it makes me feel like i just ate some blackened chicken, which made my tummy happy for a little bit until it realized it was being fooled. I think if you’re willing to try a smokey tea try this one first, because other smokey teas wont be as powerful as this one and then you can get a better appreciation for the other ones lol
Something i tried with this tea is using it as a marinade for chicken if you can’t grill it. Brew the tea and bring it down to room temp. Add it to the chicken and what ever other seasoning you’d like and marinade for a day. The chicken absorbed the flavor pretty well! So if you don’t end up liking to drink the tea straight, at least it won’t go to waste :)

drank King of Fruits by Lupicia

Lupicia has a new tea for all you to try; Durian Tea! I have had the unpleasant pleasure of trying the Durian fruit before when someone brought it to work and i still occasionally have nightmares about it :/
So naturally I was a little skeptical to try this tea. Right when you open the package your nose is greeted with the most amazing sweet aroma. Lupicia was able to take that pungent, icky smell out and replace it with the more fruity and sweeter notes that the Durian has. The taste is also awesome. It sends me to a tropical paradise! The Thai green tea i think is a perfect match for this tea since it isn’t harsh on the flavours or doesnt mask them either. The after taste is kind of interesting, to me its kinda like a fruity onion, but with not so much onion, but still pleasent and enjoyable. This tea is also awesome as iced tea, so i recommend you try both ways. If you have had Durian before and actually like it this tea might not be what your looking for. I definetly would recommend this tea to anyone. Don’t knock it until you try it!

This is one of my favorite teas! The earthy aroma of the barley mixes great with the sweetness from the caramel and honey flavouring. when brewed straight it has a similar taste to coffee but not as strong or potent. Add milk to it and it is heaven! The main thing that i love about this tea is since it is a barley tea it doesn’t have caffeine so i can drink it anytime during the day. I can also give it to my little brother and my baby cousins too. I recommend this to anyone and everyone!

I am a tea lover like the rest of you. I am in my 20’s and have been drinking tea since I was in diapers thanks to my wonderful grandma. Though the she only drank Lipton Tea, i have broadened my horizons to other tea companies, and have found a few that i truly love. I see each and every tea for being it’s own creation and experience.
