851 Tasting Notes

I really liked this one when it came out and repurchased a bag when it was retiring. I’ve been saving that bag of this and decided to open it and make a cup. This tea from what I recall was somewhat similar to movie night with that sweet buttery flavor. Unfortunately, it seems like it’s spoiled as it has a weird plastic-like taste or something to it. If only I hadn’t saved it and had drunk it right away…

For whatever reason, I woke up around like 2 am craving matcha. So I decided to make a cup this morning at a more reasonable time. I just did a lazy prep method and used a milk frother to get it nice and foamy. This matcha is quite old but still tastes perfectly fine possibly due to storing it in the freezer.

This time I tried steeping this tea according to what Lupicia recommends and it ended up tasting oversteeped and slightly bitter, unfortunately. I think this one works better steeped at 175F.The cherry in this particular cup at this temperature is coming across as cough syrup-like. This tea seems too delicate for boiling water much like jasmine greens are. It really is a lovely tea. I’m curious as to how the black tea version compares to the green.

Flavors: Cherry

I just had the black version and I enjoyed it! I had it with food which may taint my opinion a bit, but the pink peppercorns and rosemary added a very savory vibe and the cherry tasted like cherries rather than cough syrup to me, i have never had the green, only the sample sachet of black I just received.

I like the green one steeped at a lower temperature. The lower temperature really brings out the rosemary. I have so many Lupicia teas still to try that are on my wishlist.
