I’ve been on a kick with flavored Lapsang Souchong’s as of late. Not sure WHY but I am. I can’t say as I have ever been on a flavored Lapsang Souchong (specifically) kick before. So this time around I want to share Heart Tea Goodness from Cup of Love Tea with you.
Cup of Love Tea is a subsidiary of Vampyre Tea Company so I was pretty darn excited to try it! Heart Tea Goodness from Cup of Love Tea contains Lapsang Souchong Black Tea, Cinnamon, Apple, Orange Peel, Hibiscus, and Coconut Tea & Pieces.
Dry – the aroma was more faint than I was expecting but once infused everything seemed to come to life! I could smell the Lapsang, the Cinnamon, and the Orange up front with hints of Apple floating in the background. The coconut was hard to pick up with the ‘old sniffer’ but it looked lovely in the dry mix! Heart Tea Goodness from Cup of Love Tea smells quite unique which makes me REALLY want to sip on it and FAST!
I listened to what my cuppa was telling me and I took a sip of this intriguing Heart Tea Goodness from Cup of Love Tea. The flavor of the Lapsang Souchong was in full force but the Apple flavors seemed to be right along side of it acting as a faithful sidekick. I could taste the cinnamon on the end sip and on into the aftertaste. Follow-up sips revealed the orange flavors which were juicy and delicious!
What was really interesting with this tea is that when it naturally cooled at room temperature for a bit I was able to taste some more fruit notes but they seemed to pop out more and become more juicy. Most notably the citrus! THEN…it seemed to end on a subtly sweet and creamy note – possibly due to the coconut slivers! I’m TOTALLY digging this Heart Tea Goodness from Cup of Love Tea!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Smoky Black Tea
Where to Buy: Cup of Love Tea
Don’t let the smoky flavor full you, this China Black Tea is good for your heart! Elegant Black Tea smoked over wood logs in the Fujian Province of China, in the same centuries old process, is the base for this truly unique blend. Woody in the nose, the smoky taste is mellowed in the cup by coconut so that the finish is filled with notes of roasted cinnamon apple.
