I am pleasantly surprised. This tea has a strong citrus scent, smells exactly like grapefruit juice. I was expecting a tart tea. What I got was a subtle citrus tea with spicey notes, slightly tart aftertaste that does not linger long. I had anticipated needing some kind of sweetener with this tea, but I did not need to add anything. A little disappointed it didn’t taste like grapefruit juice, but it makes a delicious, refreshing, smooth tea.
