drank Yume by Lupicia

I love the smell of this tea, and I had thought a replacement for Carol (which is seasonal) was found. Fraisier does nicely as a replacement but then this one came along and confused me. So which should I restock?

The aroma is very fruity and the first sip has lots of strawberry and vanilla…or is that cream? I noticed as I kept sipping through breakfast that the black tea base comes through a little more in this tea to me, and becomes more noticeable as it cools. That’s not a bad thing, I thought it was a plus since it was breakfast.

Then I served some last weekend to Ashman thinking he would love it, but he said he preferred Carol and Fraisier. He felt a little let down by the amount of fruit flavor in comparison to the aroma, and said perhaps if the aroma hadn’t gotten his hopes so high he would have enjoyed it more. The amount of black tea he was tasting was off-putting for him.

So this one will be my own breakfast tea for solitary breakfasts, and we will stick to his favorites for weekends. I must say, I really do enjoy this one! I like the base just fine, the fruitiness satisfies me, and it stands up to my breakfast.

Which means I need to order both Frasier AND Yume. Oh, well!

I don’t enjoy this one quite as much just because of the addition of rose.

Cameron B. – And Ashman doesn’t care for rose too much. I love it and find it almost unnoticeable in this but he probably detected it. Ha ha!

I need to order some Carol this year, it’s been a few since I’ve tried it I think…

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
