drank Grape Sencha by Den's Tea
224 tasting notes

I swear to god, dealing with my inner self is like dealing with an ADD-afflicted five-year old. I pointed out that I had open packages of Apple Sencha and Pineapple Sencha, both of which we love. I pointed out that opening tea exposes it to air, which speeds the staling. But my inner self wanted to try the new flavor. Demanded to try it, in fact. So here it is in my cup. And it is a beautiful, sweet. buttery, grape-scented golden liquor. The leaves themselves are beautiful as well, with dark sharp green leaves and sprinkled purple and pink blossoms. It has a very light sweet flavor with the merest hint of butter and grapes. Quite, quite nice. I’m glad I didn’t choose to spank my inner self and tell her to fly straight.

You don’t find grape-y teas very often, but I love them…Canadian Ice Wine is another of my favorites (Culinary Teas).

Carolyn

That sounds wonderful! You may enjoy the Champagne Infused White Raspberry Tea by Red Leaf Tea.

I agree that finding grape flavored anything is unusual. Lupicia makes a grape green tea called Budou. From what I remember, the flavor is pretty spot on.

Carolyn

Sounds good. I’ll have to look for it.

This has led me to wonder what spanking your inner self would look like. Shuddering? Twitching? But I digress. This sounds good!

Carolyn, does this taste like grapes or raisins? I’ve been thinking about buying this, but I hate raisins :/

Carolyn

Not like raisins at all. It’s more grape juice like.

LENA

If it’s more like grape juice, I’m in! Mmm.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
