drank White Grape by ESP Emporium
306 tasting notes

I got a small packet of this from Liquid Prost during his experimental box sale. Thanks!

For some reason I was totally brain farting and didn’t think of it as a white tea with grape flavoring, so I was opening the package and was like ‘OH! This is white tea, it’s been awhile since I’ve had white tea’. Yeah.
The dry leaf is very grapey smelling, but I wouldn’t really describe it like fresh grapes. At first I was reminded of kool-aid, or watered down grape juice. It’s not super sweet smelling like raisins though. The smell becomes a little fresher when the tea is brewed, but only in the way that it’s less artificial.

The brewed liquor starts out a vibrant pale green. So lovely to see, and if you let it brew a bit longer it becomes yellow-green. The flavor/scent of the brewed liquor is like that of japanese muscat gummies, or Grape Hi – Chew candies. The base was a smooth white tea, which I can’t really say much about honestly. The swallow was not drying and creamy. I liked it better when the tea was cooler, the flavoring and the base really shines through when it’s warm to lukewarm, versus when it’s still fresh and hot.

I liked it, but not enough to purchase again.

I get easily excited and tend to get into the habit of collecting things I get really really excited about- books, fountain pens, fragrance, tea and any number of things. Mostly I’m just really excitable.

My favorites are oolongs! Also high for me are greens and ripe pu’erh. But I do like most teas and I’ll try most anything at least once. I just don’t like rooibos, smokey, or banana flavored things.

My name is Christina, but there’s also another Christina with a cat as a profile picture, so I go by Flyawaybirdie.

Feel free to drop me a message anytime. I love messages/letters/etc.

NOTE!: My cupboard is not up to date. Not even close. But it does have a bunch of teas I have pretty substantial quantities of, so I put them in there anyways because I’m unlikely to run out soon. Also, if I wrote a note on it and didn’t include a TTB name or a sipdown note, I’m likely to still have some even if it’s not in my cupboard, so feel free to ask if you want to swap!

Steepsterite since 2014. :D
