drank Grapefruit Oolong by Adagio Teas
1527 tasting notes

This is the first of the new teas from my Adagio order.

Hmm, how to I describe this tea? Well when I was steeping it the tea smelled of grapefruit but also of something vaguely spicy. The taste is harder to describe; I get the citrus taste of grapefruit, though thankfully without the sourness. But there’s also an odd taste that makes me think of wood (it’s not as bad at it sounds – promise!) and spice. But oddly enough the flavour combination feels very smooth on the tongue with a touch of sweet. It’s quite different from anything else I’ve drank – that’s not really saying much though.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
