sample bag from last visit to Lupicia. Evening cuppa a few nights ago

I forgot how good this is. Unlike other fruit flavored green teas, this tea doesn’t insult your intelligence by claiming to taste of some specific fruit, then presenting some generic fruit aroma. If brewed properly (about 195-200deg, maybe two minutes max. I’ve noticed with this one the lower temp is really what matters), this is like having a fresh green apple burst open in your teacup. When brewed improperly, it’s like an alfalfa field. Also unlike other fruit-flavored green teas, it is just as good when hot as it is iced. Cold is when you can really taste that its good quality tea base, it gets the round, thicker mouthfeel of the best teas. One of lupicia’s best teas across the board.
