drank Grapefruit Dragon by Butiki Teas
772 tasting notes

I am not obsessed with dragons, but for some reason I have an obsession for trying teas with the word “dragon” in the name. So far I have not been disappointed.

This dry tea and brewed tea smell like the peppery spicey taste you get in a tart rind of the grapefruit. The brewed tea itself taste like a pink grapfruit. There is still that peppery spice taste that I get with real grapefruit. The grapefruit taste gets stronger as the tea cools. When the tea is hot the predominate flavour is the dragonwell. I did not feel I needed to add any sweetener to this tea as it was not tart or bitter. But I do think it would have tasted more like a sweet grapefuit with sweetener.

Very nice blend. I have never had a tea that actually tasted like grapefruit, but this one fit the bill.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
