drank Roasted Beans by Lupicia
357 tasting notes

I’ve been diggin the roasted grain teas lately. This tea is a little too strange for me. The soybeans dominate. Add a weird sweet soy nuts flavor to it and the aftertaste is really medicinal. Once I added a dash of salt it’s not half bad. More of a broth than a tea. I won’t restock this but have about 50g left. Anybody want to try it?

I think I felt similarly about Lupicia’s Matcha Black Soybean tea, or whatever it was. Weird soy nut flavour, bitterness… quite odd. If you feel like hanging onto this for a bit, I’d be curious to try it (but I think I’d best not swap for at least a month due to being crazy busy… just ask my last two swap partners, who got their packages mailed out two weeks late!)

Maybe use it to cook rice?

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
