After my previous Lupicia order, I had thought it was a safer bet to stick with old favorites from them than to order too many new teas, but reading the description of this one, I just had to give it a try. And I’m very glad I did!
This tea has a fresh, sweet lemon drop scent right out of the bag. While steeping, the aroma of the tea base itself also came out. My last few flavored teas from Lupicia had fairly unobtrusive but also unremarkable bases, but this one seemed to be a cut above the rest. It had the definite qualities of a good black tea that is just this side of malty, and lighter than the bases of some of the other blends I’d tried from them. Combined with the lemon, it made for a nice refreshing cup. I’ll try this one iced as well!
