From Lupicia

A black tea inspired by the lemon tarts much loved in France, where sweet and tangy lemon cream is overlaid with pillowy meringue. Enjoy with milk for an elegant, mellow taste.

I love little decadent pastries, so I was all “why not?” while I was restocking some old favorites for my cupboard. The smell is heavenly, you get this buttery richness along with the sharpness of the lemon, it immediately makes me think of freshly baked shortcrust pastry.

Once steeped, I drank it straight and you get a bit of luscious, lemony tartness but the butter/pastry is what holds it all together. I have no idea if the rice puffs truly add anything or what, this is the first time I’ve had them in a tea.

They suggested milk and I was like “OKAY, YES” expecting the same kind of dessert-in-a-cup experience as Harney’s SoHo blend with milk added, but it honestly just watered everything down and kinda ruined the first cup for me. Definitely still get the lip-smacky lemon peel aftertaste, but everything else just got dulled down way too much by the milk.

I also keep making the mistake of using my super huge mug because I like to hold it between sips and get all cozy, so if I used the standard amount of water, then maybe the milk wouldn’t have vaporized the complexity.

Sounds scrumptious! Too bad it’s not a regular offering. Uh oh, I see they have Tochiotome now… (covers eyes)
