I thought I didn’t have a raspberry tea for the August Sipdown Challenge, but CameronB’s comment that this had raspberry sent me to check my tin because I was remembering peach and strawberry. The tin description just says peach and strawberry but if you go on the website, they mention the raspberry flavor first, I think.

This is one of my favorite Lupicia teas. It is so fruity and absolutely dripping with delicousness. Goes great with just about everything and is a lovely stand alone cup as well. I am shocked there are no tasting notes from me on it here, because this is one Superanna gave me and I loved it so much I bought a refill when the first tin ran out.

And I’ll do it again. See if I don’t. Shelf staple.

Sounds amazing – I just may have to try this one!

A sipdown!
I liked this, and will certainly bring it back.
It was the perfect tea for the last couple of days, as we’ve launched ourselves into our over-100-degree weather.
Ick.

Yes, I pretty much consider this one a shelf staple, too.

This is one of the teas from last year’s Lupicia group buy that I just got around to recently. It reminds me a lot of a plum oolong I used to like back in the day.

Dry leaf smells like plum, pomegranate, and raspberry. When heated, it becomes more plummy with notes of overripe berries and a little sweet potato. The flavor closely matches the aroma. Nice, tart flavor of plum, pomegranate, and dark cherry. There’s supposed to be white peach and strawberry in this blend too but I didn’t detect it. Normally I’m leery of tart/sour teas (I’m looking at you, hibiscus) but here it’s executed very well and is not overpowering at all.

Tastes good both on its own and blended with a straight black tea.

Sipdown! (24 | 433)

I was reorganizing my tea cupboard a bit yesterday and found a bit of this in a tiny tin, so I figured I’d put it out on the counter to be finished off. One fewer tin to organize, heh heh

I quite like this tea. It has a lovely soft and sweet peach flavor that is delicate yet somewhat creamy-tasting. The raspberry is more of a raspberry jam flavor to me, as it lacks the tartness of fresh raspberries. But it adds a nice richness to the more ethereal white peach flavor. I’m not sure whether I get strawberry?

Anyway, it’s good. For some reason I don’t tend to crave peach teas, so I’m not sure it will be a reorder for me. But would definitely recommend it for peach tea lovers!

Shae’s ADVENT CALENDAR, December 19

Oh, another Lupicia blend? And I am first one to write tasting note? Whoa! It smells super nice; I think it is raspberry and red currants. Bit of plums maybe as well. Anyway, it is very nice!

Yep, apparently it should be raspberry tea and from Lupicia. Thank you Shae for including at least few teas from them.

We celebrated my mother 58th birthday today, so we got another family gathering, probably last one this year, as our traditional (annual) one on 26th is cancelled due to Covid-19. So, closest family together. Luckily, I was able to enjoy my tea in calm and nice environment, so I am able to say something about this tea.

It is very nice tea with fresh and juicy raspberry taste, sweet aroma of them as well. They say white peaches and maybe there are hints of them, but I really again liked, same with their Strawberry blend, the base. The base is noticeable for sure! And not just that, it is a great companion to the juicy raspberry flavour, but it’s not super sweet. I think that teaspoon of sugar would make the flavour pop, but as I am used to drink teas plain, I will try to keep it in mind for next steep.

Another cup please! :)

Happy birthday to your mom!

Courtney

Also, I love raspberry in tea — this one is going on the wishlist.

Martin Bednář

Maybe you will find out it is less juicy than expected, maybe I just thought it is juicy , but I really liked it. Especially the aroma! I wish that Lupicia would be more affordable, sigh.

Cameron B.

Courtney, I have this one! You could’ve gotten it in our swap! XD

But yes, I also still need to try it. Sounds yummy!

Martin Bednář

I hope you will like it as I did Cameron, maybe I am just so hyped trying Lupicia and it isn’t actually that great?

ashmanra

Oh boy! My husband got me this one for Christmas and now I can hardly wait to try it!

White Antlers

Ah, a Sagittarius Mom! I bet she always says exactly what is on her mind. : )

Great picture, Martin.

mrmopar

She is till a young Lady Martin. Keep her safe as moms are priceless.

White Antlers

Martin, mrmopar speaks from the heart about Moms.

Martin Bednář

4 more nights ashmanra, it’s not that much :) You will learn patience :D
Thank you White Antlers and mrmopar — I know they are priceless. She is working in a social facility with children with autism, but she is a team leader — so she isn’t in contact directly, but of course, Covid doesn’t ask if it is first-hand care or team leader who doesn’t work with the kids.

She is priceless for sure; though we have some arguments. But I think it is completely normal.

ashmanra

Martin: I didn’t know your mom worked with people with autism! My son does ABA in-home therapy for autistic children! He has also worked with adults with autism in the past. His wife used to do the same, but since having the twins has changed jobs.

I hope she had an awesome birthday! And yes, having words with ANYONE you are close to a lot is normal. Just be sure to make up and let her know how much you love and appreciate her. I know she loves you very much – more than you can know.
