drank Grapefruit Dragon by Butiki Teas
1164 tasting notes

I cold steeped this one overnight, and wow I do not care for it this way. Hot it’s good. I really like the buttery dragonwell when it’s hot. Cold steeped? Uhh, not for me.

It was too spinachy-seaweedy this way. Way too much. And of course the sample I have of this tea is kinda old now, so there’s not a lot of grapefruit left.

Interesting, but good to know. I don’t feel like a cold steep attempt now.

OMGsrsly

I think new it might be better, but this is the one you gave me a while back, that you said was kind of old to begin with. :)

CrowKettle

Yes, that’s probably it, eh? This stuff has been in that little bag for about nine months now, and greens don’t seem to keep very well to begin with. I guess I should see if I get seaweed with the batch from the recent order. :)

CrowKettle

Do you want some from the group order to compare?

OMGsrsly

Meh. I have Eyes Wide Open (soon), which is a delicious dragonwell I’m going to have to drink down as quick as I can. :) Better not get distracted with other greens!

OMGsrsly

Or is it With Open Eyes? IDK.

WITH open eyes… lol, i kept doing the same thing! that’s a dragonwell??? i shouldn’t be surprised, stacy does nothing halfway! i agree with you… i need no other greens!

CrowKettle

Yeah.. I don’t blame you. I think I’ll come to love With Open Eyes a lot more than this one, if that’s possible. Even though I can’t get the name straight either :P

Bio

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!
