From Lupicia

Japanese bancha sprinkled with island flowers and the sweet aroma of a balmy day in the tropics. It’s paradise in a cup.

Before Steeping:
Scent- Very sweet, smells like Jucyfruit gum

After Steeping:
Color- Bight yellow
scent- a little less Jucyfruitish

Taste:
Nude- Jucyfruit, very strongtaste, it’s more of a melon-like tea
With sugar- just very wrong, like jucyfruit on a sugar high

*in all a calming tea, Not necessarily a fan of it, but I don’t like Jucyfruit gum

What is it about Lupicia’s fruit teas that my first reaction is always “Oh this is so cute”? That’s not even an adjective you can use to describe food, but seriously, this is adorable. It’s very light, just a tiny bit astringent, and then the aftertaste is pretty much what I imagine might happen if you ate Hawaii—all these summery fruits everywhere!

This was a free sample with my Christmas tea, but I’m actually wondering if I shouldn’t get more for this spring/summer. I’m glad I got to try it! It brightened up a dismal day and did its job well.

This is, I don’t know, the fruit punch of green teas. If you like tropical flavors in your tea, this is the way forward!

Definitely one of the prettier teas that I’ve seen, and the aroma in the tin is absolutely delicious. It’s a decent tea when brewed hot, a yummy, fruity confection, but nothing earth-shattering. I can coax about 3 good infusions out of it, which is always nice.

The game changes, though, when it’s cold-brewed. It becomes bright, bold, sweet, tropical. I don’t get vegetal hints while drinking; it’s almost pure fruitiness. I’m running low on it now, because I’ve always got a jar cold-brewing in my fridge.

Cold brew. I received a sample of this a long time (years?) ago in the Lupicia newsletter, and really regretted brewing it hot instead of cold at the time, so I’m happy to do so today with a sample from beelicious.

The dry blend smells fruity and sweet, like candied pineapple. After 8 hours cold brewing, the liquor is a light yellow-green with that same tropical-fruity aroma. The tea is perfectly smooth and crisp, and the fruit flavors are sweet and refreshing. I hadn’t realized how tasty a pineapple-flavored tea can be—it isn’t overpowering like a freshly cut fruit, but reminds me more of the mellow sweetness of a Taiwanese pineapple pastry. Tropical green teas might be a dime a dozen, but this is definitely a good one that avoids the usual pitfalls of tasting artificial, too nondescript-fruity, or “not tea enough”.

QueenofTarts was kind enough to send along a bonus sample of this in a recent stash sale package. From the description, I was expecting to love this one and I wasn’t disappointed! While it was steeping my kitchen smelled like candied pineapple…this is one of the strongest scented teas I’ve had recently! The flavor was smooth and sweet and very tropical: pineapple, mango and papaya seemed like the main notes to me. The base seems very mild; I didn’t notice any of the vegetal or grassy flavor I might expect from a green tea. No bitterness or astringency either, even though I accidentally overheated my water. No two ways about it, I’m going to be placing a Lupicia order very soon!

Well, nerts. K S sent a sample bag of this and I messed up the water temp. Too hot. It smells like a fruity little party, and even though I made the green tea go bitter, the floral-fruity stuff is still dancing around on my tongue and it smells like a fruit punch candle. Reminds me a lot of a Korean Wedding tea by O’Sulloc.

Well, everybody messes up a cup now and then…

This tea is nice! It is very tropical flavored with mango being predominant. It tastes like some french teas I have had. A little like Mariage Freres’s The A L Opera and a Palais De Thes tea too. It is well rounded, but light on the base notes. It is pretty good without sugar and I bet it would be fantastic cold brewed. There is a little tang from the green tea, but not so much that it makes things unpleasant or my mouth pucker. If I make it through the other teas that I have that are similar, I may turn to this one for a less pricey option!

Thanks for the sample Lupicia!

It’s CRAZY good cold brewed.

Dustin

I’m going to stick the tea bag in a mason jar and put it in the fridge right now. Sold!

Go, Dustin, go! I’m cold-brewing some of their wild mountain grape oolong (or whatever it’s called) as we speak.

I had received two bag of this from momo back when I purchased from her stash sale, and then a little loose leaf from JennKay when she sent me some teas. I finally tried it the other day and have to say that I am not as impressed as I’d hoped to be with this. I guess it’s because I really didn’t taste anything other than the green tea. I wanted more of the “paradise.” I only tried it hot and, since I often find that fruit flavors in green tea come out more for me when cold, I won’t rate this until I get the chance to try it again.

Pretty decent for a fruity flavoured green, but sencha bases really just don’t appeal to me, and that’s what most tea companies use. Anyhow, the tea was fairly floral/aromatic, sweet, and juicy – probably too floral for me, actually. Base was, for the most part, not overly present. Not bad, and not badly flavoured, but I’m glad I only had 5 teabags from my Happy Bag a couple years ago. (Down to 3 now, and I cut open the two to brew this time. Don’t really care for teabags…)
