drank Milk Caramel by Lupicia
361 tasting notes

I have been wanting to try this tea for months. It has taken every ounce if willpower to not order it sooner. I love hojicha teas. And I think it’s a great base tea for flavors that go well with roastiness. And I love caramel. So I finally caved and ordered some.

I think they sent me the wrong tea. I hope anyway. This has zero caramel flavor. Even when I close my eyes and think only caramely thoughts, I get no caramel. There aren’t any caramel or almond chunks as seen in the picture either. Gotta be the wrong tea, right?

Or is this just bad? I mean its a good hojicha. But that’s not what I wanted. I wanted a buttery roasty hojicha with a little bit of burnt sugar flavor, or creamy caramel, I don’t really care which. Just something! Boo!

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
