(I’m drinking the bagged version of this tea)

All of those bad things I’ve said about “flavors”? I’m not sure if it’s because it’s green tea or because it’s Lupicia, but they don’t apply to this cup (or the other Lupicia green flavored teas I’ve had). The ingredients list on this one is “green tea, flavors”. I still like it.

Their brewing instructions are also NOT BRILLIANT and say to use boiling water. Haha, NO. Also “put the lid on while brewing for better tasting tea” which I’ve never heard before. My mug does have a lid (somewhere?) but in the office I usually just take small sips until I think it’s ready. I don’t have a timer.

I’m trying to break myself of the sweetener habit, at least with the greens, because I know it’s WRONG, so there’s less apple flavor and more grass flavor than what I generally get with this tea. The first taste (and scent) is grassy green flavor and the after taste is of mild apples. The longer it brews the more the apple disappears.

Lupicia rocks with the flavorings (most of the time).

Don’t get me wrong, the flavoring is amazing. It’s just too light for me. Then again if it were any stronger, I think it would taste like Adagio and I’d be like yuck!

Don’t beat yourself up over the sweetener. It can help bring out the flavour for your particular palate. By changing to powdered sweetener, I’ve managed to cut down to “just enough” and really enjoy my tea. “Just enough” is about 1/3 sachet per cup for me
