drank Shekwasha Oolong by Lupicia
1911 tasting notes

Morning tea here. This isn’t my favorite flavored pouchong, but it is rather tasty. I’ve never had a shekwasha (some kind of citrus fruit) and I probably never will, but I think I would probably like them. It’s somewhat like grapefruit but not so bright or bitter, perhaps more like a pomelo. The oolong base is light and green, could me more buttery or floral, but it matches the shekwasha well. Lupicia certainly knows their way around a flavored oolong.

I’ve never seen or tried this – browsing the website I’ve just assumed it’s a weird oolong type I’ve never heard about. On the list it goes.

Dinosara

I think it was a limited edition when I bought it, perhaps a spring thing. Similar time of year as the yuzu teas that show up occasionally.

Bio

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: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
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: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
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.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
