I’ll have to try your prep method – sounds great!
I’ve been so curious about this mix—glad to know it doesn’t lump up!!
I used those silly 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoons to measure out seven loose scoops of matcha. I figured seven was enough since some had a little more. I think by doing seven scoops the powder was a lot looser so when the water hit everything completely dissolved. Could just be the matcha powder though.
Sounds very intriguing!
We are so glad to hear you like our San Francisco Originalitea, Golden Honey Dew. It is not discontinued so rest assured. It is a limited tea that is only sold at our Bay Area stores so you can still purchase it at San Francisco Center and Valley Fair Shopping Mall in Santa Clara. We also have a Melon Oolong and a Melon White Tea that have the similar juicy melon flavor that you might enjoy as well. These are available on-line. I hope you will be able to get to our SF or Valley Fair Store so you can continue to enjoy this amazing tea. It’s one of our favorites too.
Ahhh, the lupicia website states it’s discontinued. Darn, now how will I get more! I’m already thousands of miles away from the SF store. I think you have to open up a shop in NYC. I completely forgot to purchase some melon oolong when I was there.
This is totally old, but Ricky, if you ever want more of this tea I can pick it up for you – I live very close to the Valley Fair store :)
It’s available on the website now, if you’re still interested :) I just included it as part of a sampler for my friend but after finding out it’s limited quantity I’m tempted to take it back for myself… is that wrong!?
You know if you had a Breville One Touch you wouldn’t have to worry about it just set it to desired temp and go! hee hee ;)
She’s right :)
Devils on my shoulder I tell you! ;)
Breville is just magic! One touch GO!
If a tea company figured out how to make an air freshener that smelled like certain teas, then I think I’d go nuts and buy them all. Mmm…tea smell… ;)
Have you heard of tea aroma pots? They are like incense burners for tea. You put your favorite teas on top and there’s a tea candle on the bottom. You can get really cool ones from Lupicia. http://www.lupiciausa.com/product_p/41461581.htm
My world has been rocked — thank you Ochabito! ::puts aroma pot on wishlist::
Glad you had a better experience with it than I did. Lower water temp and less steeping time must be the key. I steeped it like I would an herbal and it was…pretty bad.
Luckily I rarely read the description before I make tea. I looked at the leaves and it looked like a green. If I saw this was a herbal tea, I would of done the same thing you did. Boiling water and a long steep. I think it also helped that my zojirushi was set at 175F and I was too lazy to reboil the water. Perhaps oversteeping the rosehip made your tea bitter?
Thanks for the wonderfully detailed note about Lupicia — it sounds like the manager was super-great. :)
Definitely! Tea stores are always fun. Each one is always so unique. The manager was extremely helpful in helping me empty out a bunch of Jeffersons from my wallet :(
I am always up for sharing my tea with others. If you’re interested in something just let me know.
80+ Love it, needs to purchase more!
70-79 Pretty good, would consider another cup
50-69 Not bad, but probably won’t repurchase
