drank Jardin Sauvage by Lupicia
1851 tasting notes

Sipdown, 133. Yeah, found a tea that didn’t originally make it into my cupboard the other day, so still 133. I got this as a sample in this month’s Lupicia newsletter, clearly intended for icing since that’s what the newsletter focused on, so I cold brewed it.

I’ve never had green rooibos before. I don’t like red rooibos really, but I’ve heard green is another animal. Seems to be; this is light and refreshing, and definitely not medicinal. I guess I’d say the green rooibos is kind of like a non-grassy green tea? It’s very mild and smooth, and the fruit flavors are nice. Mostly mango, but a general tropical-ness. This made a nice glass of iced tea for the afternoon, though I will undoubtably wish it had caffeine in it later.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
