A flavorful tea; it isn’t overpowered by the matcha so its balanced well between the two teas. This tea steeps in 45-60 seconds and also uses less water; I am guessing if one were to use too much water or oversteep this tea, it probably wouldn’t taste this good.
If you like the taste of Rooibos, you might like this one. It has a soft strawberry and vanilla flavor while still being able to taste the Rooibos. Sometimes Rooibos has a medicine-like flavor; in this particular case it was fairly strong. If you dislike the flavor of Rooibos but want drink it, I’d recommend trying Ronnefeldt’s Orange Cream Tea.
After reading one of the previous reviews I had to try a grape after steeping the tea. Oh my word guys… its so good. I can never look at another grape the same. And the way it flavors this tea is so nice. It’s a very gentle flavoring unlike Queens Muscat. You won’t be hit with a bunch of muscat flavor but I like that because then you can fully enjoy the other elements like the slightly roasty flavors of this more oxidized oolong. Speaking of which the leaves are gorgeous. Look at those leaves!
A lovely Taiwanese Oolong. When drinking this tea visions of falling cherry blossoms on a beautiful spring day may occur. Even the dry and wt leaf smell is heavenly. A sweet tropical peachy scent. Not your usual grandma peachy smell. The flavor has slight hints of grass mixed in with the peach. It’s a silky brew that goes down nicely.
This is a little too mild in my opinion. I could steep this longer but Lupicia recommends 1.5-2 minutes and I already threw away the sachet. If I were to steep this longer I think it would have too much green flavor, like matcha powder flavor – some might like this though. The salty sakura flavor isn’t very pronounced.
Not bad! I was a bit sceptical if the black soybeans would taste okay in genmai-cha. I don’t drink genmai that often but I do enjoy it on occasion. The roasted rice flavor is toned down so you can taste the black beans; a good blending of the two flavors. I steeped it for 2-3 minutes even though it should be like 30-60 seconds.
This is very mild. I nearly drank the entire cup without knowing what it tastes like. With the last few sips, I was left thinking that compared to the other Lupicia flavored black teas, this is by far the least flavorful – its still an okay tea but nothing special. If you find the Lupicia flavored teas to be too intense, maybe try this one.
Interesting black tea; I steeped it for 3 minutes when the packaging said 45 -90 seconds, so I might be getting some over-flavoring. I think there is a kind of burnt (or roasted) maltiness in the background – most malty teas have it in the foreground – this is much more subtle.
If you ever have a chance to, go visit a lavender farm. It will be one of the most relaxing things you will ever do. Not to mention your lungs will thank you. Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm on the island of Maui is the one I visited and now I love to try different tea blends with lavender. I’m surprised this only ranked as a 74. It steeps well and the liquid is so silky. Te lavender flavor fuses so well with the white tea. It also has slightly creamy notes.
Flavors: Cream, Lavender
Similar to the Grapefruit Green; the flavors are all muted~ you can still taste the grapefruit flavor but it’s like trying to see vibrant colors with dark sunglasses on an overcast day.
The bitterness is highlighted because the fruit and tea flavors are dulled. This isn’t a horrible tea but I wouldn’t recommend it, unless you like decaf teas. After trying several decaf teas, I’ve noticed a trend where the flavors are always dulled.
