drank Paradise Green by Lupicia
2201 tasting notes

Maaan I wish I knew what was going on with my mouth. Mostly when I drink something I get this odd, juicy-sweet-tart taste in my mouth. Even my mouthwash! It’s not unpleasant, but it is misleading when it comes to teas. It actually makes some less flavorful teas taste better, but then I don’t know if I will like them actually after this sensation goes away. I wanted to try some of my Verdant reserve club teas this weekend, but I don’t want to try limited teas with a somewhat warped sense of taste.

So I figured I guess I will drink some fruity teas that will be enhanced by this. I got sachets of this in my Happy Bag at the new year but haven’t tried it yet. It smells highly tropical-fruity in a somewhat generic way. I guess I can pick out pineapple and mango. The liquor is super bright yellow green. It looks like I like this one more than most people… Maybe it’s just the odd aftertaste giving it a fruity sweetness that is quite pleasant. It’s not something I would restock on but I would be that I’ll enjoy it iced and it won’t be too hard to drink through.

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.
