YUM!

As I mentioned before, I’m always on the look out for that special grapefruit green tea (yes, I know I found it from Lupicia, however, somehow, even though it is the same tea that I tried in Arizona, it doesn’t taste quite the same. I suspect it has something to do with the water, possibly water temperature… I don’t know. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I was in a very magical place – Tohono Chul Park – and that made the tea taste all that much better. I just know that I was mesmerized by that tea and I want that experience again, and even though Lupicia’s tea is the same tea that was offered by the tea shop in Tohono Chul Park… and it IS a delicious grapefruit tea, it just doesn’t taste as magical at home as it did that afternoon in Arizona.)

Sorry for that digression …

Anyway… when I found this tea available from Zhi Tea, I knew I had to try it. I had actually ordered this months ago, but, am just getting around to trying it now! I’ve a lot of tea … as some of you may be aware … and I am attempting to organize it and get my stash under some sort of control, if not a controlled size, then at least a sense of organization to it all so that I can easily find teas that I want. In my ongoing process of organization, I came across this tea and decided it was time to brew it.

And it is YUM! It has a fantastic grapefruit flavor – tangy but not really tart, the sencha balances the flavor out nicely. This tastes more like the Texas pink grapefruit that has a nice sweetness to it to counter the tangy character of it.

I think I shall save the rest of my sample for when the weather is warmer so that I can enjoy it as an iced tea – I suspect it will be marvelous!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
