This is oldie. I really don´t know – but I remember we made a group buy because of tea bags. And I remember that I fell in love with Lupicia, but the price :O It was still in foil wrapping so it should be good.

I was looking for it on French website, but in vain. Weird. We ordered it there. So Japan website. Found it; but just in Japanese. I can´t read this “loose leaf”. Google translate!
Ahh, I see – apparently discontinued tea, blend of Indian and Ceylon teas. Sounds great. The tea itself in sachet was quite puny with few golden pieces. I did not added any milk though it would be probably even better.

What a colour after 3 minutes steep! Wonderful copper and completely clear. Shiny!
It is not aromatic, I wonder it is because of age or my flu. Sorry if you are looking for this characteristic.

Taste – full bodied, malty tea. But also some sweetness. Rich taste, like English breakfast blends. But this has got some mint aftertaste? I mean like something fresh after the sip. It is really great. As I said, probably like English breakfast. It really reminds me that.

I wonder how it pairs with milk. But I guess I won´t find out :/

I don´t want to be sick :(

I love Lupicia! Since this tea is discontinued, if you are looking for a different Lupicia English Breakfast black to replace it, I really liked La Belle Epoque. It may not be quite as strong but it was quite a nice blend, I recall a touch of darjeeling and Keemun in the blend.

Thanks everybody, I feel bit better today (and not because a paracetamol in my body). I guess I will make free Monday (I have just not mandatory lectures) and it will be okay.

Mastress – oh, thank you for suggestion, I will check it out for sure :) But right now I have to save my money a bit, so I think I will stick to my subscription of Bird and Blend. And some teas I will buy around.

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
