1.05 tablespoons for 375 ml of water

The grapefruit and green tea aroma compliment each other nicely. There’s a savoury spice note (almost like an indian spice) in the aroma as well.

The flavour has the broth-y feel of a dragonwell. The grapefruit flavour is present right from the beginning of the sip. The grapefruit and green tea flavours compliment each other very nicely. There is a tartness present from the grapefruit flavour in the middle of the sip but it compliments the taste profile very well. I am getting the strong grassy note of the green tea mostly in the aftertaste. The savoury note from the aroma seems to be faintly present, latched on to the beginning of the dragonwell taste. Buttery mouth-feel.

Along with the aftertaste, my tongue is getting that tingly feeling that I would get from eating an actual grapefruit.

Second infusion at 3 minutes.

Fourth infusion at 4 minutes. Mostly dragonwell flavour. Still retains a buttery mouth-feel. Grapefruit flavour still present in the background. Still a pleasing experience. Getting a bit of a white tea taste as the cup cools.

Thanks to Sil for sharing some of this with me!
