drank Kumquat by Lupicia
150 tasting notes

Before today I did not know what a Kumquat was, so I didn’t know what to expect. I got a little baggie of this blend from Cameron a while back but now that I’m at the end of my sip down I’m getting back to my swapped blends. Since this is supposed to be a citrus blend I was a little disappointed, I love citrus but I just got a faintly sweet black tea when I steeped it. I would drink it again though, I just don’t think I’m going to add it to my collection.

Flavors: Citrus, Honey, Wood

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Bio

My name is Gabriella but everyone calls me Gabby! I am a 20-year-old college student living in NY, majoring in History and Elementary Education. In my spare time, I post reviews and little pieces of writing on my blog, read books, play video games, write poetry, and love to cuddle up with my two-year-old hound dog Buddy.
I have interesting tea preferences, to say the least:
Definitely a mood drinker, and I tend to change my preferences often, if I have a bad experience with a specific flavor or tea type I end up avoiding it for a while, then dive back in later. I also prefer my teas plain but will sometimes make lattes.

Flavor Preferences:

Fruit: mainly melon, berry, and apple flavors are my favorites. I’m allergic to pineapple, passionfruit, and kiwi.
Dessert: Almost all flavors dessert-wise are welcome I especially love warm and comforting flavors like caramels, chocolates, cookies/biscuits, crumbles, and muffin.
Floral: I prefer violets, lavender, roses, and mallow flowers. Open to all florals, allergic to dandelions.
Spices: I love lightly spiced blends but some like the infamous Hot Cinnamon Spice is too much for me.
Herbs: My favorites are mint, rosemary, sage, thyme, and sometimes basil.
Favorite Companies:
Harney and Sons
Simpson and Vail
White 2 Tea
Plum Deluxe
Trader Nicks
Friday Afternoon

60-69: I won’t refuse if offered

I love doing swaps and if you’re interested in anything in my cupboard let me know!
