drank Tochiotome Green by Lupicia
1769 tasting notes

This was a birthday gift from my bestie! The aroma: wowzer! Sweet, candy, strawberry!

I was too chicken to steep a green for 1 1/2 minutes in boiling water, so I took the temp down to about 175F. I am glad, because this is the tiniest tad drying as it is. The steeped tea has the strawberry aroma still, and it very much reminds me of the scent of Marco Polo. The taste is more green tea than strawberry, but I don’t mind because the aroma is great and the green tea tastes very good. There is a bit of nice tartness. I am very glad to try this one! I expect it will be good iced as well.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
