Gee, I'm the first and I've never bought anything from them! In fact, I wasn't even aware of their existence until recently.

My friend Amy sent me a bag of Lupicia's Thé au Chocolat; she wrote me that she thought it was nice (cold-brewed) and arranged for me to have a bag as well (bear in mind that we're both serious tea drinkers who tend to prefer plain, high-end tea). Anyhow, it's quite nice. I've been taking it to school in one of my Seven Cups travel jars (I picked up several during last month's sale); it doesn't get very bitter if it sits which makes it a good choice for "grandpa-style" brewing. I've found that it's even better if I add a gram of dried rosebuds (the Sadaf brand found in Middle Eastern groceries) per 4 g leaf--it rounds out the taste and somehow sweetens it. And I agree with Amy: it's also good cold-brewed.
