|"A little party in your cup. Drink it every day! You are worth it!"|
Once I discovered Lupicia's Birthday Tea, I found my preferred lusciousness. Sure, I'd rather have birthday cake--all frosted white and covered in rainbow sprinkles. But tea is certainly the next best thing- especially when it reminds me of chocolate cake and candy confetti.
Right away this blend prepared me for something festive. As soon as I opened the tin, I was greeted with the smell of chocolate. The darjeeling leaves were swirled with flower petals-- roses, cornflowers, and marigolds, I suspected, though Lupicia didn't give it away on their website, nor did they respond to my email inquires.
What the website did reveal was that this is a FLAVORED tea, so I assumed there was more in it besides darjeeling and flowers. Whatever is in it tasted fattening and looked celebratory. I treat myself to a cup almost every day before lunch.
I guess I'll have to find something even MORE special to drink on my BIRTHday. That shouldn't be a problem since Lupicia has about 300 flavored teas for sale, most with tempting, "party-on" names like "Cookie," and "Happiness," and "Champagne Rose." Bottoms up! I rate "Birthday" a 10.
