drank Green Grapeberry by Julius Meinl
50 tasting notes

I’ll admit, I was initially put off by the name of this tea. Green Grapeberry? It sounds like one of those syrupy sweet fruit teas that I used to buy in high school, drink a cup or two of and then never touch again. Or even worse, a flavor of kool-aid. OH YEAH!

Fortunately, this tea is nothing like that. I ordered a pot of it while having dinner at Julius Meinl because they were out of Blue Sky, which is the exact same blend except that Grapeberry has sunflower blossoms. It does not have any grapes or berries, however. ;)

I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this. It was light and delicate, sweet without being overpowering, and floral without tasting like perfume. I would very much recommend it to anyone who likes floral teas, but I don’t think I could recommend it to people who only like strictly unadulterated green teas. There’s just too much herbal for that. But if you’re not a purist, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this.

Not to mention, it paired WONDERFULLY with my winter vegetable spaetzle! Mmm.

Bio

I’m a tea omnivore if there ever was one. I’ll wax poetic about the finest sencha loose leaf but have no problem slurping up a few bags of Celestial Seasonings in between them. Everyone deserves quality from time to time, but every well-traveled road has a bit of dust (and fannings) along the way. :)
