drank Grapefruit Dragon by Butiki Teas
1432 tasting notes

Hrmm. Maybe this is just getting old. Or maybe the water I used was still too hot. I’m not getting much grapefruit from this at all. Just seaweedy spinachy green tea.

It’s good green tea, for sure. It’s just missing the grapefruit.

I find the temperature difference in this one strongly affects how much grapefruit I get out of it; I had strong grapefruit sessions as well as cups that mainly tasted of the buttery base.

That being said, I think I got that batch shortly after the mess with Hurricane Sandy (early November?) so the leaves might be getting tired by now. :)

Good to know! I’ll have to try it again. The base is really nice, even though it’s getting older. :)

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
