drank Grapefruit Green by Lupicia
1878 tasting notes

My friend who loves black tea and puerh came over for lunch today. I made Vegetarian Tower, which is whatever veggies you have on hand, steamed, stacked on toasted English muffins, with Brie melted over. I served this as our first of three teas.

When I asked my friend if she liked grapefruit she made a face but agreed to try the tea anyway. The surprise for her was that she liked it a lot. The surprise for me was that when paired with food, this tea changed a lot. I felt like I was drinking a cup of green tea while someone was sitting very very close to me peeling a juicy orange that was spraying a fine mist of fresh juice in my face. Oh my goodness! Now this might have to go on our next Lupicia order!

Her reaction was the same as mine. The turning to juicy orange sounds amazing!

I think Lupicia does some really nice flavored teas

Indeed!

Oh, I don’t know what sounds better. The tea or the Vegetarian Tower.

ashmanra

It was yummy, Meg! We used zucchini, yellow squash, and red, orange, and yellow sweet peppers but sometimes add thinly sliced carrots, sautéed onions, tomato slices, gen bell peppers, mushrooms…it’s all good!

MegWesley

Mmm. I will have to try it. I think even my family would love it!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five 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 and oolongs.

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

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
