Tea for U & Me

Hello everyone ^_^
So recently I went to Mitsuwa Torrance and came across this tea shop called Lupicia. The shop had some very friendly employees and the display were really inviting. After sampling a tea (I forgot the name of it but I know it was infused with apricot... I think -_-') and smelling some of the tea they had to offer, I knew that I had to buy tea from them.

Most, if not all, of the tea Lupicia sells are available as loose leaf in 50g tins, loose leaf in 50g bags or in 10 pyramid tea bags. At the shop I bought me a bamboo whisk (Chasen) and bamboo scoop (Chashaku) for my matcha set. When I got home, I immediately went on their online site to check out all they have to offer. After browsing everything, I had a number of countless debate on what to buy. Eventually I decided what to get and proceeded to order.

So here are a few pictures of the items I bought. I will provide links to each item and to Lupicia site, FB and twitter for those that are interested. I will probably do another post when I have tasted each tea.
