drank Palekaiko by Lupicia
1271 tasting notes

Woot, finally reviewing the exclusive Lupicia Hawaii tea blends! Palekaiko, wowwee, is for the ginger lovers out there. The ginger here is on the strong and spicy side, that eventually smooths out with mango and passionfruit end of sip.

Sweetented, this tea tastes like eating sugar crusted dried ginger, with the odd dried mango strip. The passion fruit flavor is pretty good too. I found this blend to be pretty yummy, but yeah, you’d want to be a ginger lover or you’ll find this blend a little too potent.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
