This is an interesting combination, I’m not sure if if I’ve ever come across it before. The tea contains pieces of dried yuzu and the citrus note is quite strong. However, when brewed, the chocolate is more much prominent than the yuzu. It is present but certainly takes a back seat to the gourmand note. I also get a slight note of brown sugar. Overall, a nice take on a standard dessert tea. It’d go nicely with cake or fruit tarts.

The base is the typical Lupicia black tea, well-balanced and bright but can turn very astringent quickly if overbrewed.

I give it points for the uniqueness and overall drinkability but wish the yuzu were more prominent.

Made up theme of the month: Chocolate, Rose, Strawberry and Decadant Sweets

Prep: Western (no additives)
Tasting note: Definitely has that chocolately maltiness that cookie, framboise chocolat, fraisier, Date Strawberry, white christmas and joyex noel have. I think orange chocolat and marron chocolat and a few others use it as well but i havent tried those yet. I don’t know which tea it is that i enjoy in this base but i like it a lot. Anyways on to the yuzu citrus part, I am not getting much, like barely any if I am honest, which is really disappointing since i see some yuzu in there and the smell of the dry leaf is really yuzu-y and my tea was just recently opened. Will try again with oatmilk and then cold brew to see if i can coax out the yuzu flavors. Also, I had the shikwasa (okinawan lemon-lime like citrus fruit) oolong tea and it was mostly floral with the scent of the fruit. Half temped to buy some of these fruits as a concentrate and make tea cocktails, if I cannot find the flavor.

Aww that’s a shame, their regular Yuzu has plenty of tasty yuzu goodness.

Yeah, that sample was much better for sure! :)

Chocolatey, and a nice cup of tea. Dessert-like tea. I don’t get a lot of citrus flavor as Cameron noted so I agree with her. Maybe… Maaaybe a little citrus zest. I do like the dark cocoa flavor, and it tastes more chocolatey than other chocolate flavored teas I’ve tried. I’m thinking the very light bitterness is due to the citrus rind, and that adds to it. I like the base, it’s malty, some dried sweet fruit notes. I recommend it, it’s a good taste, just don’t expect a lot of citrus flavor, if at all. :P

Sipdown!

I never did find the yuzu in this tea. Honestly I’m not sure I would’ve enjoyed the combination anyway, I’m not a huge fan of lemon and chocolate together and yuzu is even sharper than lemon.

But this is a perfectly pleasant brisk black tea with cocoa. The base is a CTC, and has a nice strong, malty flavor with notes of raisin and dark caramel. There’s some wood as well. The cocoa is definitely the unsweetened variety, and the light astringency of the tea helps drive home the powdery quality as well.

It’s a tasty non-yuzu chocolate black tea. I’m not sure I was too highly impressed with any of Lupicia’s “chocolat” range, though perhaps the raspberry version was the best one? I remember liking the Earl Grey as well…

I loved Marron Chocolat, it always reminded me of Nutella.

Yay for a sipdown!

@Mastress Alita – I forgot about that one, though I don’t remember what I thought of it…
