When I was little I used to eat those Japanese jelly gel-cup candies. You know, the kind that they have warnings on them now, that you can choke on them if you swallow it whole. Luckily I didn’t choke on any of them. lol The two types I liked were the grape flavored ones and the other the ever-popular mango ones. This tea kind of sort of reminds me of the grape ones.
It doesn’t taste nearly as artificial as the Muscat which tasted a lot like grape soda. This one has a good sencha base, and it doesn’t have quite the candy-soda-like taste but more of a realistic grape flavor. This one and the Yamabudo (Mountain grape) oolong are both pretty good. The Muscat would be good to those who like Fanta grape soda. It has a slight bitterness to it that mimics the slip-skin part of the Budou (humongous almost black grapes). It’s super aromatic like the others but the flavor is mild.
So I finished going through all the “grape” Lupicias. I think I like the Yamabudou over the Bodou Green over the Muscat.
