66 Tasting Notes
いもくりかぼ茶が大好き！ This tea has such a nice warm, sweet, nutty flavor. Not candy-sweet, but starchy-sweet, like sweet potatoes (pieces of which are scattered throughout the tea). It brings to mind fallen acorns, crispy-golden leaves, the earthy scent and senses of autumn.
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.
