I was disappointed with this tea. I was expecting a spicy Autumn flavor and ended up with a low key rooibos flavor. That would be ok if I was expecting that. Otherwise it is a smooth tea.

Tastes much like the black tea grapefruit without the tones of the black tea. These teas, at least for me, require sweetener to pull the full taste of the grapefruit to the surface.

Smells wonderful. I love grapefruit. This has that typical black tea undertone; however, it isn’t tainted with “flavorings”. This tastes like grapefruit essence.

I find the typical Pu’er smell of aged tea from this brick. The first steep brought out the caramel in this tea. A sweet and creamy flavor.

Bio

A tea lover that comes by it honestly. Both my maternal and paternal grandmothers loved tea. Dispite my parents being chronic coffee drinkers, I’ve managed a few tea parties with them using grandma’s tea things.

I raised my son to love tea. The evidence of this came one day when he was shoveling snow while I was boiling water and prepping the teapot. He walked in all ruddy faced and winded. Seeing me, he sighed heavily then raising his face Heavenward he breathed, “oh good! you’re making tea.”

Converting my husband, however, took awhile. Then the daily gathering around the teapot – as a family – began.

I’m also a knitter, a crafter, and a book junkie. I step over on the dark side and drink coffee once in a while, BUT, it has to be good coffee in a French Press or stove-top perk pot. Drip coffee is not my cup of tea.
