Discovered a spring 2023 sample in my stash. This was a bit better than I last remembered and had some of the chocolatey qualities that I love in a standard laoshan black.

Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Dark Chocolate, Tobacco

Finished off a bag that I purchased in Paris. Lupicia fruit flavors are so, so good. This is no exception. I don’t really drink green tea anymore, but Lupicia flavored green blends are the exception.

Flavors: Candy, Strawberry, Vanilla, Whipped Cream

Finished off a sample of this a few days ago and remember nearly nothing about it sadly.

Not a favorite. I haven’t been drinking a lot of green tea over the last few years, but decided to break into some samples I had. This still tasted super fresh, but wasn’t a fan of the flavor. Cooked spinach and latex?

Finished this off at work, and while it was good it just wasn’t great. Something about it was a bit meh and boring. Flavor was super subtle despite using lots of dry leaf.

Bought a box of sachets while in Paris and just now getting around to opening it. Lots of apricot flavor, which is delightful! Outside of the apricot there are some generic citrusy flavors, but the apricot makes it special.

Flavors: Apricot, Citrus

Working on sipping through a bag, and while the first couple cups were super fruity this one is all floral and honey. Really delicious, as I love this flavor profile, but unexpected!

Flavors: Gardenias, Honey, Jasmine, Peony
