Lupicia Fresh Tea (Hawaii 2016) – Sakura Teas
Ala Moana Center is the largest mall in Hawaii and is located a few minutes away from Waikiki. On our last visit to Hawaii, we found this unique tea shop in Ala Moana called Lupicia Fresh Tea.
Lupicia first started out in Japan in 1994 under the name L’epicier while selling specialty black teas.
In 2005, L’epicier merged with another specialty tea store named Lu Pi Cha En and combined their names into Lupicia.
The thing that attracted us to this store was their unique specialty green, white, and black teas.
As you can see by the rows and rows of tea canisters, they have quite a large selection to choose from.
If you like aromatic teas, you’ll love this place. I especially liked the various green tea varieties that they had on display.
Since our visit was during April, I was particularly drawn to their Sakura tea offerings including the Sakura (a black tea blended with lots of salted cherry blossom leaves), the Sakura & Berry (a black tea with cherry blossom leaves scented with sweet strawberries) and the Sakura Vert (salted cherry blossom leaves blended with green tea).
They have a lot of specialty teas that are only available in Hawaii.
The great thing is that they have all of their products packaged in convenient sizes that make the perfect gift.
