It’s getting later in the day and my Adagio order just arrived. I plucked this one from the bunch and set it up in the Breville. It smells quite a bit like citrus when dry. 175/3 min. Now, it’s not so citrusy smelling, however, it’s still pleasant. The taste is very light. It’s not overwhelming and there is definitely a citrus aspect to this tea. The white tea has taken on a vegetal taste, which, with the grapefruit flavoring, isn’t my ideal cup of tea.

I had similar issues when brewing this one – it ends up heavy veggie with a lack of citrus.

I figured it out as I was washing the pot. It tastes like veggies with orange flavoring, like in cough syrup. The scent isn’t horrid, though.
