Tea: Yume - 5520
Vendor: Lupicia USA
Price: $6.00 / 50g
Vendor Description: A taste of happiness with the sweetness of vanilla, sweet-sour fragrance of fruits, and delicate rose buds. "Yume"means dream in Japanese.

Leaf: The leaf for this tea is sweetly aromatic. It has a hinting at being like a flavored strawberry. The mix is comprised of orthodox leaf. The leaf is expectantly very black in color. There are some yellow and pink petals mixed in for some color.

1st Infusion Parameters: 3g, 208F, 4 min

1st Infusion: The tea has a very sweet smooth black tea aroma. The tea has the color of a light cup of coffee. The flavor is light bodied and crisp. It is lightly fruity with a clean aftertaste.

Rating: 5/10

Conclusion: Another flavored black tea in the giant pile of flavored black teas. Nothing truly outstanding about this tea, yet nothing offputting. As with most Lupicia black flavored teas I would have liked more flavoring.
