drank Sencha "Nara" by Lupicia

My first time trying this sencha from Lupicia. The tea is a deep green color with a nice amount of matter in the bottom of the cup (not too much, not too little). The tea is grassy with a full, round, mellow flavor.

Mild, grassy, delicate. A great tea for sipping while relaxing in a quiet moment.

A softer flavor this time, rounder. Warm-grassy, compared to a sharp-grassy. Still very good.

drank Tsugaru Green by Lupicia

Usually I don’t like flavored green teas, but I have been very happy with what Lupicia has available. This Tsugaru Green tea has just the right aroma and flavor of apples from the Tsugaru region of Aomori, Japan. The green tea base is not bitter nor bland, neither does it overwhelm the fruit. The flavor is slightly tart but not overwhelmingly so. I like it a lot.

drank Jasmin Mandarin by Lupicia

I like this tea very much. The jasmine aroma and flavor are very present, but not overpowering, and the green tea is not bitter or metallic (which has happened in some jasmine green teas I have tried). A very soothing combination.

Autumn is here, and my favorite tea is once again in my cupboard. Sweet and nutty and mellow, the flavors and warmth of fall.

drank Vanilla by Lupicia

The vanilla is a warm flavor, earthy rather than sugary-sweet. Very nice, and I bet it would mix well with other teas. Tried with a little bit of milk.

The fragrance of the dried leaves is very sweet and reminds me of a little-on-the-cold-side Autumn afternoon, walking in a park or a forest with fallen leaves. Generally I don’t brew green teas with boiling water, but the vendor suggests doing just that. Doing so, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The tea base does not taste scorched or bitter at all, and the chestnut pieces add a buttery sweetness to the overall drink. This tea is very calming and relaxing.
