I first learned about Lupicia tea through my friend Kelsey. She insisted I try the Cookie tea, saying it would change my life. And well, it did, because to this day I am a loyal customer and avid fan of Lupicia.
The closest store to me is in the Westfield Century City mall. The store smells warm and inviting, with all different tea notes filling the space. The employees are always willing to brew different kinds of tea for you to sample. Also, tins filled with tea leaves are on display for you to open and have a free smell. The selection of teas is vast, and if you’re a tea lover like me, you could spend a good hour in this place. My mom and I recently went and bought several packets of loose leaf tea for my family.
My favorite Lupicia teas are Cookie, Banana Chocolate and Strawberry Chocolate. I prepare the teas with a dab of honey and a dollop of whipped cream. This makes the perfect afternoon treat without having to eat something terribly sweet.
Unlike other teas whose tastes don’t match the flavor name, Lupicia teas are true to their title. The Cookie tea tastes like a sugar cookie with notes of caramel, the banana chocolate has a light, non-artificial tasting banana flavor with chocolate undertones and the chocolate strawberry is true to flavor name as well.
If you sign up for the Lupicia monthly newsletter, you’ll receive a free sample every month. I love receiving the free samples and always anticipate what flavor is coming next. Try out Lupicia tea, you’ll be glad you did.
