drank Golden Grapefruit by Tea Guys
4231 tasting notes

This is the tea that lead me to buy from Tea Guys, as I am on the lookout for an extraordinary grapefruit green tea.

I’m glad I did place this order – Tea Guys has prompt shipping and great teas too! I really like this tea, although I really think I’d like it better if it was just a green tea blend rather than a blend of black and green teas plus green yerba mate. It’s not quite what I was looking for… but I still like it.

It has a really nice citrus flavor – the grapefruit flavor is tart yet sweet. There is a little bitterness to it, but, it’s not a strong bitter – just a little bite that gives some added dimension to the cup.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

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.
