Sorry for the massive tasting note spam, guys… I was drinking tea and writing notes offline this evening because my computer wasn’t playing nice with Safari and Powerpoint open simultaneously. Of course, it didn’t much care for Powerpoint on its own either…

Ohhhhh man. Does this one ever smell AMAZING! I just selected it since it was at the top of the box, and later realized that it would be good to compare against Plum Oolong from New Mexico Tea Company. No comparison at all, though. This one is strongly grape in aroma… and flavour too! YES! Oh wow, this one’s delicious. And I guess it should help me figure out the difference between ‘grape’ and ‘muscat’; it doesn’t taste like, say, Welch’s grape juice the way I seem to recall Butiki’s Grape Oolong tasting, but it definitely makes me think grape anyhow. I actually prefer this flavour though… oh man… super delicious! I can’t put down my cup! Which kind of sucks because now I’m out of all the tea I brewed… perhaps it’s a sign to put the computer away and go to bed. I’ll be more productive tomorrow…. right….?

ETA: Second infusion (3 min) is still pretty good; muscat flavour gives way to more oolong flavour. Not unexpected.

More productive…….I would say, Yes! Especially after a few cups of tea. :))

Kittenna

I’m trying to figure out whether you’re awake insanely early, or just live on the east coast… It’s absurdly early (5:30) in the morning here again, whoops…

ScottTeaMan

I was extremely tired after dinner, and fell asleep for 3-4 hours. Now after having three early morning cups of tea and posting a review, I just caught myself falling asleep. I need to lay down ASAP, and get a couple more hours of shut eye. :))

ScottTeaMan

Oh both by the way…….early & Eastern Time Zone [OHIO].

ScottTeaMan

Good morning & Good night…….

Kittenna

Ahhhh, that explains it. And belatedly, thanks :)

ScottTeaMan

Kittenna, Has there been problems on Steepster?? I’m following 342 people,and I have one review above yours. Wait…….that’s odd. I thought TASTING NOTES were posted chronologically, with the more recent ones posted above onee another, so the more current ones are posted first. I have a bunch of Tasting notes that are in that order below this one-that seems strange. I wonder why this note is out of order [so to speak]??

Mercuryhime

Sorry to butt in, but just to answer your question, when you edit your tasting notes, they get bumped up to the top again. This seems to be a new feature from back when Steepster did some updating of their site. :)

ScottTeaMan

Oh, thanks Mercury-I thought that might be the case, because it wasn’t like that before.

Kittenna

Yeah, and I really apologize for continually bumping mine to the top – I preferred when I could silently add my ’ETA’s. They’re mostly for my benefit.

Azzrian

What does ETA mean?

Azzrian

Oh and SO happy you loved this one! :)

Kittenna

Edited to add :)

ScottTeaMan

Estimated Time of Arrival. :))

Hesper June

Oh! Like Scott,I kept thinking it meant Estimated Time of Arrival…and I never could figure out how that applied to the tea tasting!
Thanks for asking Azzrian;)
This tea sounds really yummy, Kittenna!

Azzrian

Ah got ya thanks :)

Kittenna

Hahahaha, sorry guys! I know it has a dual meaning, but figured it would be obvious. Clearly not :D

Out of Cupboard and into shopping list. This is a staple – my daughter and I both love it – she craves it! I am shocked it lasted this long!

Grapey oolong taste – perfection!

Azzrian

Thanks Missy! :)

Kittenna

If it’s your 6-month anniversary here, it must be right around mine too! Exciting, haha.

Azzrian

Weren’t you here before me?

Kittenna

My tealog informs me that my first tasting notes were written 7 months ago? So I guess I was. Bad memory! :D

Azzrian

Ohhh wait seven months ago on what day? :) I thought you were here before me :)

Indigobloom

Happy six months Azzrian, I can’t believe it’s only been so long!

Helena

Happy Six months Azzrian! :D and hopefully many more months to come :D

This tea is exactly what I hoped it would be. It’s my favorite Japanese Kasugai brand Muscat gummies. Only it’s liquid and not going to rot my teeth. I’ll have to invest in this oolong for health reasons. Mmhmm. Health reasons.

The base of this tea is pretty light. It seems like a light black, or a slightly roasty and autumnal oolong. The flavoring is so right. It’s floral and raisin-y and sweet and nectary. I love this. Love this sooooo much. Muscato is actually my favorite wine, and muscat grapes tie with kyoho grapes for being my favorite. All those things are expensive. This oolong is is cheap by comparison. Cheap, and delicious and so much better for me than gummies. I love gummies. haha I bet this would make an amazing cold brew.

I am so amazed at this tea right now. So. Amazed. When is Lupicia coming to the east coast????

Thank you sooooo much, Azzrian for this delicious sample! When I finally get to ordering from Lupicia, I am getting some of this!

Edit: Steep two and the oolong base is stronger now with weaker muscat flavor. It is still really tasty. This tea shows no signs of being bitter or astringent. I think I’m liking this infusion more than the first because the flavor and tea is more balanced.

When I’m in the Bay Area (CA.) I go to their store and they have several muscat’s. I have a decaf Muscat that is very good from them! They really do muscat well!!!

Dylan Oxford

Suuuuure, health reasons ;)

Kashyap

I’m fond of muscat gummies as well and know just ones you mentioned..if you like Kyoho grape you should find the oolong version by Naivetea…truly wonderful

lol, this one is fun. deep, sweet dessert grapes, reminiscent of the ones i used to shove in the freezer and suck the syrup out of when i was a kid. very grape, but not candy. perfect to finish up a ridiculously long day before i take on another.

there is a great element to this blend…. there’s a hint of stem to it!

Ran around working at a convention all weekend and this stayed in my cup! I ended up drinking it iced because I had a metal thermos and couldn’t warm it, but yum! It tastes soooo good iced, like grape drink mixes but better! I think this is my favorite tea yet!

Smells like grape soda! My husband loves that stuff. I love Lupicia’s Momo Oolong but am only so-so about this one (I wasn’t wildly surprised; grape’s never been my first choice for flavoring things but I tried this on a whim because I like a lot of Lupicia’s fruitier stuff and this one has high regard here). As a plus, I was cooking pork chops with blackberry sauce tonight and realized late in the day I didn’t have the fruit juice it called for. It already includes “brewed black tea” so I used this along with some Earl Grey Grand Classic as a substitute. Worked out great; dinner was tasty. So there’s that.

I was smelling something grape-like in my sample box and stumbled upon this sample from Lady 0f Spaydes. Yum! It tastes and smells like the Kasugai Grape Gummies from H Mart! This is so delicious and sweet. I love the medium-long, brown-black oolong leaves dance in the cup and unfurl. The taste is like a little floral with some roasted nutty nuances intermixed with the grape flavor. The grape flavor isn’t too artificial, and I like it! I usually don’t like grape flavors (though I absolutely love grapes!). Yummy!!!

The fifth Lupicia tea I tried from my order.

This is just to say “wow”. So grapey. Amazing. Natural tasting, incredibly fruity.
Like REAL grape juice, but with the sweetness tempered by the oolong base.

I didn’t even know that “Muscat” was a grape related word up until recently. I kept seeing people use it to describe Darjeeling tea and I was all like “wtf is this?!”.

Anyway. I can’t see myself ever tasting grapes in a Darjeeling but never say never.

I’m so off topic.

This tea.
It’s really refreshing and natural tasting. I bet it would be delicious cold brewed.

Lupicia, you’re awesome.

I open up the pouch and am instantly transported to a farmer’s market with little paper baskets of deep purple, almost black, concord grapes, all lined up, scenting the air with their fragrance. Whenever I see them, I have to buy a little basket. I have yet to make a grape pie, or jam, or any other kitchen masterpiece like that; these are purely for the messy enjoyment of squirting the insides into one’s mouth and sucking on the skins (while spitting the seeds out in a hopefully not TOO ungraceful manner…). The tart bite gets you first, but then it’s all floral sweetness from there.

This tea is that.

Because that scent is in my ‘Top List of Transportive Aromas’, this tea is already a favourite, and I haven’t even tasted it yet!
The fact that it’s from one of my absolute favourite people in the world only heightens my emotional attachment to this leaf. Ifjuly sent this my way, in a box full of tea awesomeness…. She’s left me speechless for days (I think my husband is starting to get weirded out by my repeated gazing and ruffling through the contents of her package…lol).
Tea friends :)

Onto the actual tea… the honey coloured liquor is gorgeous, visually adding to the already intoxicating experience of smelling this tea.
Oooh. This is good!
The grape is SO naturally grape! What I was smelling before comes through beautifully in the taste; it’s elegant, with light floral notes and earthy grape. I can almost feel the texture of the skins in my mouth as I sip…. it’s unreal.
This is fantastic…..and I’m drinking it in my Japanese cherry blossom lustreware tea cup, which is perfect today. :)

What a tea!

whatshesaid

Wow, you just singlehandedly sold me on this

boychik

Sounds so delisious. She is awesome ifjuly.

DeliriumsFrogs

She is Soooo awesome, that ifjuly. :)

whatshesaid, I really loved it…and as it cools down, it tastes really good as well. Clearly, I’m a bit obsessed with that type of grape, so this review is somewhat skewed. haha

Suziqzer

I’ve never heard of grape pie. And natural grape tea… Intriguing :)

DeliriumsFrogs

I’m in Upstate New York, where grape pie is a big thing once the concord grapes come in…they sell them at all the farmers markets around here.
It seems to be a ‘love it or hate it’ type of pie, with a very sweet, jam like filling. As you can probably guess, I am most definitely in the LOVE IT category…. The grape is so different from ‘eating grapes’; the scent coming off the fruit is killer…and this tea captured that for me perfectly. It made my afternoon. :)

Suziqzer

If I’m ever up there during the grape season I will have to look for them. :) I love red grape juice, although I’m not sure about the texture of a grape pie.

Cavocorax

OMG. I just ordered the black version of this from Lupicia and I can’t wait to try it. I nearly got the oolong, but I’m hoping the black will be just as tasty…

DeliriumsFrogs

I didn’t KNOW there was a black! ooooh… I bet it’s delicious!
