drank Chestnut Green Tea by Lupicia
8 tasting notes

Fall is here and guess what?! It’s Chestnut season at Lupicia! I cannot wait to snag myself a few bags of this. This tea is a fall staple at home. The green tea leaves and nuttiness of the chestnut compliment each other so well. I definitely recommend this tea as a hot brew and if you’re into experimenting…try this with milk! The base of this tea is a green tea which I usually never think about adding anything to a green but this is an exception. Straight brew is also very lovely and aromatic.

Flavors: Chestnut, Nutty

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Amazing hot or cold. Momo Oolong is one of my top favorite flavored teas from Lupicia(: Definitely peachy and surprisingly floral, tastes like a white peach melted into a cup! The high quality Taiwanese Oolong base is also delightful giving this tea its floral notes. If you haven’t tried this tea then….you’re missing out!

I’m doing a sample tea drink, right now, and also going though and, gulp, weeding out tea’s that I do not like and removing them from the cupboard. Life is too short, eh?
Its going to feel very cathartic, I think.
I’ve tried this before, and I stand by my first sip of this. Its a bit bitter for me. I wish I got more of the fruit!

drank Earl Grey Grand Classic by Lupicia
612 tasting notes

Amazing blend both hot and cold. Surprisingly smoky, and you can definitely taste and smell the longan which lends an exotic, mysterious, “vintage” sort of feel to the whole thing. Brewed an enormous 10-cup pot the other night for our Breaking Bad marathon (trying desperately to catch up before the end of the series lest we face spoilers) and was utterly enchanted. The leftover tea iced was wonderful today with a huge salade nicoise with all the trimmings and some creamy nutty gouda on baguette rounds. I love the way it has elements of all sorts of things I love—smoky afternoon-type blends, that delicate Chinese tea quality, mysterious heady un-tart fruit—together in a single refreshing but haunting brew. Will definitely be restocking.

drank Grapefruit Green by Lupicia
592 tasting notes

My mom had a bunch of Lupicia samples just lying around, so I rescued them and brought them with me to Boston! I’m not going to give this a number rating quite yet because I have no idea how old the sample is, but I’m loving it! I have a grapefruit scented shampoo that I absolutely love and always am tempted to taste a little even though I know it will be bad. This tea is kind of how I imagined the shampoo would taste, haha. Anyway, the grapefruit flavor does not taste very artificial, but also not as sour as eating just a straight-up grapefruit, which I like. The green tea is not as prominent in this one as other flavored green teas except maybe a little at the end. Definitely adding this tea to my shopping list for later purchase!

Edit: Just wanted to add that it did start getting quite bitter toward the end of my cup, but I’m still liking it!

Nice roasted flavour. Extra savoury and nutty tinge from the soybeans. Oceanic quality of the green is present but possibly milder when compared to other genmaichas. Mild roasted flavour. Clear/smooth/soup-y mouthfeel.

Thanks Indigobloom for sharing!

Momo box tea! I had this in the morning as my calm before the storm I’m a bridesmaid and this weekend is totally taken over by wedding stuff.

As for the tea itself, it was ok. Nice base and overly flowery decor. I didn’t get any each in this. Oh well. Not bad, but not overly impressed.

Anna

It is definitely underpeached, but Lupicia’s bases are so good (I know, I go on and on about this) I rarely mind their underflavoured teas at all.

CHAroma

I really like this one. It grew on me over time.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Anna- The base was pretty good!

Charoma- I have a few more cups worth to play with, so I’ll have to see if it grows on me.

drank Watermelon Barley Tea by Lupicia
33 tasting notes

Brew this cold to get the watermelon flavour. If you brew it hot and then ice it, you might not notice it. I’ve never had barley tea before so I didn’t really know what to expect. It has a roasted grain flavour, but not as strong as what you might get with a genmaicha. I thought the watermelon note would be stronger, but this was still a pleasant enough drink. I cold-brewed for about three hours. Doesn’t need sugar – it has a subtle sweetness. Would I buy it again? Doubt it. But I don’t regret trying it.

Ugh… I was so grateful the PT went easy on me today due to the amount of muscle pain I am feeling in my arm. I got a light regime and a bit of a massage which was nice.

It is COLD outside and when I got home I just wanted something warm and satisfying. When it comes to flavored green teas, Lupicia has quite a few nice ones, there is no doubt about that. Sometimes the extra flavoring will inspire me to drink more green tea than I would otherwise and this is such a nice and juicy grape flavor. I did not think I would like this but it’s tasty!

This is one of the teas that came in the Lupicia summer grab bag and I was fairly certain I was going to hate this because generally I’m not a big fan of grape flavored anything.

The bag says to steep this in boiling water which I found to be kind of strange… I’ve never done that with a green tea. I believe mine was steeped around 180 F. This really smells like grape candy – the aroma is a little on the artificial side for me.

However, I was surprised by the flavor in this. It isn’t as obnoxious as I was fearing it would be. The package says “sweet and mellow” kyoto grapes and that’s an apt description in my opinion. It reminds me a bit of white grape juice but definitely isn’t overpowering. Mostly it’s sweet and fruity but I get a slightly sour aftertaste. It goes really well with the sencha. REALLY glad I don’t hate this since I have a whole bag of it, next up I might try cold brewing it, it could be really good that way.

I received a sample of the Afternoon tea and the flavor was lovely. Perfect medium-bodied flavor. I will be placing an order for more.
