drank Muscat by Lupicia
2201 tasting notes

Sipdown that I never added to my cupboard. I got a sample of this in the last Lupicia newsletter, and cold brewed it. I really don’t like grape flavored things, and this sachet smelled like grape flavoring, although not really “purple” grape, but definitely the somewhat fake muscat candy that you can find at asian markets. True to name, I guess. It’s a bit wine-y as well, which also makes sense.

The cold steeped tea is similar in flavor/scent, although I like it more than I thought I would. I don’t mind it, is how I would say it. I don’t love it, but I don’t have problems finishing the cup. If you love muscat flavor, this is for you. If you are looking for an authentic grape flavored tea, perhaps not.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
