drank Piccolo by Lupicia
2905 tasting notes

This was one of the free samples in my last Lupicia order, and while I am grateful for free samples I sure was disappointed to see this rooibos. I probably should have given it away, but I remembered trying their caramel and rum rooibos and it was pretty good, so I was hoping.

Opened the bag. BLECH. Rooibos. Where’s the berry? Still hoping it wouldn’t TASTE like rooibos, I steeped it to go with supper, red bean soup – kind of like a vegetarian chili. With the food, it was innocuous enough because the spices drowned it out, but once I finished my food…blech. This pretty much just tasted like straight rooibos to me.

Maybe I should drink it once a month or so and see if I can develop a taste for it. If you want to know what this tasted like, take a hit off a bottle of Robitussin.

Unfortunately, the taste lingers. And lingers. And lingers…

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…
