This tea was everything I hoped it would be and more. The base is light and vegetal, and the flavor is rich, caramelized, and buttery. Strong brown sugar notes, and no hint of bitterness or astringency. Very much reminds me of Butter Sencha from DavidsTea, but not nearly as temperamental or finicky. This is definitely one I want to stock up on before it disappears.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Caramel, Chestnut

Mmmmm….an excellent tea to start the day. I’m often dubious of both cherry and chocolate flavors in tea- they often come across as medicinal, or downright artificial tasting. I actually found this to be pretty true to biting into a cherry cordial. I’ll definitely being adding some oat milk and making it a latte next time.

Flavors: Cherry, Chocolate, Marshmallow, White Chocolate

Lupicia does it again. Another absolutely astonishing fruity tea. I love the oolong base with the fresh white peach flavor. The aroma is incredible as well- like you’re biting into a white peach picked right from the tree. Compared to Alphonso Mango (which I sipped last night), this is a bit more true to the actual fruit, and is less candy-like. Still, I think I prefer the former.

Flavors: Floral, Peach, Stonefruit

This remains my favorite Lupicia flavored tea!

I love Kotobuki and have been disappointed that since the closure of the California division of Lupicia USA, they never added that flavor to the Hawaiian USA Lupician storefront. :-(

I have been wanting to place a Lupicia order for forever (I know, I’m late to the game), and finally did so. I was so excited for the package to arrive, that I ripped into it as soon as I got home from work at 8pm. I’d been craving mango, so decided to try this one first (despite it being black, and it now being 8:15pm…and I have to wake up at 6am tomorrow). Lupicia, I’m sorry it took so long for me to find you. This is an absolutely exceptional fruity tea. It really does last just like a mango candy, and the smell (both dry and brewed) is absolutely captivating.

Flavors: Candy, Mango, Sweet

Tastes like a fruit smoothie. Grapefruit is not dominant, and banana makes the overall blend creamy.

I mainly brew western style.I like my tea extremely strong, so I tend to use wayyyyy more dry leaf than suggested.
