322 tasting notes

Last of the Lupicia samples that were gifted to me from Cameron B. :D I wanted to try all the Lupicia ones since it will be difficult to buy them soon. :( I am so thankful that I got to try them. This is another one that is hard to get.

Lots of reviews on this so here is my 2cents. ^^ The yellow-greenish liquor has the flavors of a good sencha base, umami, seaweed, oceanic, with a touch of pomelo with little or no astringency. Clean mouthfeel. The great sencha base with the pomelo notes makes this a winner.

Flavors: Citrusy, Grapefruit, Seaweed, Umami, Vegetal

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 15 sec

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Sencha, Matcha. I’m currently into Oolong, Black & Pu’erh.

Gongfu cha is the main way I prepare my tea (gaiwan or Yixing teapot). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. I do try some flavored now. I don’t like artificial sweeteners.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia. (Note: I love the teaware from TeaVivre and Yunnan sourcing.) Good experiences with 52Teas, Harney & Sons, Whispering Pines

Flavors I dislike are artificial flavors, especially artificial sweeteners. Strong lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, ripe papaya, sweet honeydew.

Can handle a little of the following: Rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, mint, spearmint, peppermint, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, all fruits except cantaloupe, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
