I dialed down the steeping time and this tea doesn’t taste as woody – I’m found out what the taste reminds me off. You know the temperate rainforest on the cost of BC (and Washington, Oregon)? The tea makes me think of wet cedar bark, slowly decomposing in the moist climate and covered with a thick layer of green moss. Or that might just be my inner Ecologist showing. ;)
I’m also picking up the spicy note a bit more clearly, it tastes like a mix of cloves and pepper. The grapefruit is just a subtle flavour in the background.
