drank Tsugaru Green by Lupicia
150 tasting notes

Freebie bag from their store.

The dry pyramid smells amazingly of tart green apples, and while that scent doesn’t completely survive brewing, it persists. I spent the first few minutes waiting for this to cool enough to drink just breathing in the steam and its green apple aroma.

Comparatively, the flavor disappoints, but I do get a sense of apple contrasting nicely with the bancha, and as the tea cooled further, the apple flavor grew more pronounced. This makes me think that cold-brewing might be more successful. I’ll try that if I ever get another tea bag.

I’ve just recently discovered the world of loose tea and am really enjoying myself. I’m still in SAMPLE EVERYTHING mode, and likely always will be.

I love green teas, chai, and citrus flavors. I don’t mind hibiscus. I will drink a bitter green tea, but won’t drink bitter black tea. I’m working on figuring out which black teas work for me.

I tend to drink my tea without milk or sugar.

I’m using Steepster’s Cupboard function to actually reflect my current tea stock, otherwise I’d never be able to remember what I already have.
