drank Grapefruit Green by Lupicia
30 tasting notes

I wanted to try another tea before sleeping, so I asked my sister to pick between Grapefruit Green and Strawberry & Vanilla. She said, “Grapefruit Green, because Strawberry Vanilla sounds nasty.” I hope to prove her wrong later.

Anyway, I’ve noticed a lot of Lupicia teas suggest brewing their teas with boiling water and a low steep time. I haven’t tasted a bitter tea yet, so I suppose they are not wrong on that, but I think I’m gonna reverse it (lower temperatures, longer steeping) to see what happens.

When I opened the bag, I was caught off guard by the aroma. Lupicia makes very beautiful spelling teas. Like, I am amazed by how fragrant they are. You could really tell this was a green tea that was highlighted with some serious grapefruit notes. Upon tasting, I noticed however this was a surprisingly mellow tea. There was no horrid aftertaste—well, there shouldn’t be no matter what—and it was simply soothing? I’m not sure if that’s the right word for it, but I liked it. I could taste the grapefruit chilling in there; it wasn’t overwhelming, but it wasn’t subtle.

Lupicia is quickly becoming one of my favorite tea merchants.

I honestly wish I got the sixty dollar one, but I am super happy with my thirty, and I have enough tea to last through spring, probs.
