I LOVE love LOVE this tea! OMG!
For a couple of years now, I’ve been on a quest of sorts: to find the best grapefruit flavored tea. It all started after visiting a tea house in Arizona, and loving the grapefruit tea that I had there. I even chatted with someone else from Steepster, and he managed to locate the tea supplier of the tea house, and learned that the grapefruit tea that they serve there is the one from Lupicia. I had tried the tea from Lupicia… and somehow, it just didn’t taste the same. I suspect it has something to do with the water composition in Arizona, or something because I am not able to get the grapefruit green tea from Lupicia to taste as good as I remember the green tea was that I enjoyed at that tea house.
But I think I may have found the grapefruit tea! And can you believe that it happens to be a wine-infused green tea with grapefruit peel? This is absolutely MARVELOUS! The grapefruit is prominent, but, it captures the sweet elements of the fruit while the bitter elements of the grapefruit are somehow softened or eliminated … I don’t know. But this is not bitter, this just tastes like sweet grapefruit. With a hint of fruity wine. And sweet, slightly vegetative green tea.
And it tastes wonderful. I love this.
