Finally got around to cold brewing this one to have with lunch, and boy was it delicious! Lots of juicy grapefruit, no bitterness or astringency from the green tea. Super happy to have this one to drink with lunches since I have made a sizeable dent in my supply of teas to cold brew.

I can never tell how a green tea will come out when cold steeped… maybe it has more to do with the quality of the base leaf, unlike black tea where a poor base can be masked by a cold steep. Sometimes greens are bitter and overdone, but not this one. Yum!

Do you remember what your method of preparation was for making this one iced?

My friend who loves black tea and puerh came over for lunch today. I made Vegetarian Tower, which is whatever veggies you have on hand, steamed, stacked on toasted English muffins, with Brie melted over. I served this as our first of three teas.

When I asked my friend if she liked grapefruit she made a face but agreed to try the tea anyway. The surprise for her was that she liked it a lot. The surprise for me was that when paired with food, this tea changed a lot. I felt like I was drinking a cup of green tea while someone was sitting very very close to me peeling a juicy orange that was spraying a fine mist of fresh juice in my face. Oh my goodness! Now this might have to go on our next Lupicia order!

K S

Her reaction was the same as mine. The turning to juicy orange sounds amazing!

TeaBrat

I think Lupicia does some really nice flavored teas

ashmanra

Indeed!

MegWesley

Oh, I don’t know what sounds better. The tea or the Vegetarian Tower.

ashmanra

It was yummy, Meg! We used zucchini, yellow squash, and red, orange, and yellow sweet peppers but sometimes add thinly sliced carrots, sautéed onions, tomato slices, gen bell peppers, mushrooms…it’s all good!

MegWesley

Mmm. I will have to try it. I think even my family would love it!

Hello again grapefruit green! Let’s try you with honey!

So I have bronchitis. Yay! bleh. Explain why I’m still sick and me getting over this is taking awhile. However, happy that it’s not messing my taste buds – that last sinus infection made everything taste bitter. Worst that has happened is I cough into my tea cup, ew.

I should be eating more honey, so I slide some in this tea. Honey and Grapefruit, for me, taste great. The honey here turned off the grapefruit zing, making this tea a mellow grapefruit. Pretty good, but I prefer this unsweetened for the zing that makes this tea unmistakably grapefruity.

back to coughing

feel better!

Get better soon!

Hope you feel better soon! :)

Also, if you have raw honey, it’s a better remedy for coughs than prescription cough medicine.

Another LiberTEAs Goodie!!! YAY!

This Green Flavored actually seems to intensify the scent while and post infusing…rather than losing aroma like most teas seem to. YAY!

I think it’s more of a GRAPEFRUIT than RUBY RED or RED or Sweet or sugary-sweet type…there is a natural bitterness to the grapefruit taste so if that is what you like about grapefruit you should like this flavored green!

I like this one hot but think is would also bee good, cold.

I would drink this one again, that is for sure!

Ewa

Grapefruit and green tea just sounds like such a perfect combination. Want!

TeaEqualsBliss

The more I sip this…the more I like it…

Peggie Bennett

This is why we need a Steepster iPhone app, so that I can add this to my shopping list and be able to access it on the go. Because the next time I go to Lupicia, I might get “tea shock” and forget what I wanted originally.

TeaEqualsBliss

@ Peggie – I sooooo wish I had better access to Lupicia!!!!

Using the shopping list on the blackberry as a website is slow, but doable

In the bag, this perfectly mimics grapefruit – one of those very aromatic grapefruits, with tons of citrus oil in the peel. In the nose there’s definitely rind and bitterness – the full scale of true grapefruitness.

In the cup, though, the bitter element is reduced to the slightest hint in the aftertaste, just enough to make it a natural citrus. This really is just like drinking a grapefruit – or an oroblanco/Sweetie, going by how green it tastes.

There was a period in France when I used to have grapefruit for breakfast every day – where I stayed there were these perfect little grapefruit spoons that I loved, but I never got around to buying any of my own. So this summer in Japan, when I found some identical ones, I snatched them up immediately.

Now I want to stir my tea with one of those spoons. And I want to drink this with grapefruit. And I want to try it iced. And I want to have it with chocolate cake. And; and; and.

As always, Lupicia tea makes me really happy, and gives me small comforts and luxuries to look forward to. And my gratitude knows no bounds.

This is a really good one. :) Are you in Japan right now?? I’ve always wanted to go there! So cool!

Anna

No, I was there this summer. The very first thing I did upon arrival was obviously to stumble across a Lupicia store, haha. You should definitely go when you get a chance, it was so much fun.

TeaBrat

I’ve been getting into grapefruits lately myself.

Tina

Wow! This one sounds interesting. The grapefruit taste is quite special but refreshing. Can’t wait to drink this one.

Ah! Nice weather! Finally! Today was so gorgeous, after I got home from work I took a book outside to read in the sun. LOVELY! So I’m in a pretty happy, fresh, springy mood and I needed a tea to match. While I was digging around to find a tea to match my mood, I caught a whiff of my super-obnoxious smelling Trident Layers gum (the strawberry citrus one) that lives on the shelf above my tea. It smelled nummy and suddenly I was in the mood for a springy, obnoxious tea. I thought it was a good time to try this one.

So there is this Lotte grapefruit flavored gum that is tart and tangy and bright and easily as obnoxious as Trident Layers. This tea? Smells like that. Which I think is awesome because that is my favorite Japanese gum. Ever.

But the taste is a bit of a letdown. Oh, it’s not the tea’s fault. It tastes like a sort of an okay green tea base that has had a piece of my beloved gum dipped into it briefly. It’s actually not bad but it’s not what I was hoping for because the flavoring isn’t very strong. I know, I know. Normally I give Lupicia two very enthusiastic thumbs up for their light and natural flavorings so I really shouldn’t anticipate anything different. But that smell! I just couldn’t help it.

Perhaps if I hadn’t had a yearlong addiction to Sweetie gum, I would have had different (or no) expectations of this tea and would have been able to enjoy it on its own merits. After all, it is sweet, light, a little tangy and very pretty.

I just wanted obnoxious.

I figured that I’d try this one hot to start and then go with a cold brewing later. This is from the lupicia bag that Kittenna and i split, and let me tell you, thank god we did! Sooooo much tea!

This one is bright green and grassy in appearance when it’s dry.

Love it when steepster eats half my tasting note. Will edit later with tea notes.
EDIT: I WISH this tasted like it smells. The aroma of the brewed tea is wonderful and delicious and omg i just want to crawl into the tea and go for a swim. However the taste? Not so much. I would rather drink Stacy’s Grapefruit dragon any day. This one has a bitter taste to it.

I will be brewing this as a cold drink to see how that improves the tasteor doesn’t. :)

Kittenna

The base and flavouring of grapefruit dragon are way better.

Sil

there was a lot of dust in this one

Kittenna

Bleh. Oh well…

Sil

well if you like it, you’ll have lots to drink!

This teabag smells divine. Bright and fresh grapefruit with a slight perfume finish.

It tastes sharp, sour and generally has a fresh grapefruit tang. Milder than the scent but pleasant and again somewhat perfumed and dry. The green tea is light and sweet with a little astringency to match the grapefruit.

I wasn’t expecting a lot from this tea but it is very tasty. Would make a nice morning tea addition. Thank you QueenOfTarts for this sample.

Thanks, greenteafairy, for this tea!!

This was so refreshing this morning! I love citrus teas and this one was kind of surreal because I felt like I was eating a grapefruit while drinking this hot. It has the bittersweet tang of a grapefruit and it seems to pops when you sip it like pieces of grapefruit do. The base has a warm, dark bitter greens kind of taste. It adds depth to the grapefruit and prevents it from becoming overly bright.

Overall a brilliant and surreal tea for a surreal morning involving a brain in a box. (I work in a neurology office.)

greenteafairy

I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I was really impressed by how natural the flavoring was in this one too.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Yup! Thank you for bringing it!

Sipdown…Wow, with a name like Grapefruit Green, you’d think I’d be ready for the citric punch in the mouth. But this tea took me by surprise, and I’ve even had it before!

This tastes like pure grapefruit was squeezed into a nice green tea base. It is strongly citric and strongly acidic! These aren’t bad things. But it was a little much for me first thing in the morning. Still, if you love eating grapefruits, this tea would be heaven for you!

I enjoyed it, but I don’t think I’ll re-stock it. I’m in an exploring-new-teas kind of mood. Lucky for me, I finally received my first ever Ovation Teas order today!! So, I’ve got plenty of new teas to explore in the coming days. Yay for adventure! :D
