My birthday is rapidly approaching, which reminded me of the absolutely delightful teas I received last year, including “Birthday” tea from Lupicia. I thought that I would order some more Birthday tea from Lupicia this year to help me celebrate, but unfortunately I cannot find it anywhere on their website. I will have a serious case of the sads if this tea is discontinued for good. It is/was an AMAZING tea, similar to American Tea Room’s Brioche tea, but with a slightly more chocolate-y flavor. Birthday has a slight natural sweetness that comes through even without sugar. It is such a pretty tea, too, with colorful flower petals mixed throughout that look like celebratory streamers and confetti. Birthday made me so happy on so many levels.
I was slightly bummed when I ran out of my last stash, but consoled myself by thinking that I would have another opportunity to enjoy some this year. Please, dear Tea Gods, smile upon me and bring me some more Birthday tea! I am not the only person who loves Lupicia Birthday tea, either, so hopefully it will return to their inventory soon.
For the time being, I guess I will just have reminisce about the delightful Lupicia Birthday Tea and comfort myself with some Sugarcubes….one of the rare occasions I take sugar with my tea.
