So I’m not going to add a rating to this tea because MY version is not the dragonwell version. Stacy was kind enough to send me a sample with the other base that she was thinking of blending with. It has been a looooooooooooooong wait for anyone that’s been tracking the number of times i’ve harassed stacy about it :) Well it finally arrived with my tea order and let me tell you, this tea is a smelly puppy! lol All of the teas in my order smell vaguely of grapefruit BUT i’m not concerned. First started i LOVE grapefruit and secondly, give it a day or two and i’m sure they’ll be fine.

I had a week and day from hell yesterday what with the insane amounts of work to wrap up before vacation, my other half being sick and unable to help me get the house cleaned, laundry done etc… and vacation plans were still not finalized. I didnt’ get a moment yesterday to sit and have ANY TEA until 7pm. However, the fact that I had this from stacy waiting for me in the kitchen absolutely made up for it.

When i finally got a chance to sit and take 5 mins to myself before continuing with the craziness I of course chose this tea. OPening it, is like being hit in the face with 4 tons of grapefruit juice. REAL grapefruit juice, not grapefruit cocktail which is so prevalent in stores there days. I could barely wait for the steeping to be done before taking my first sip. This is AMAZING! I can’t find the words to describe the wonder of a tea that just IS grapefruit. It sounds a little weird to a lot of people, but what stacy has created here is just perfect. It IS what i have been wanting in a grapefruit tea. I have a few more teas to try from stacy before placing my next order, but the dragonwell version of this will for sure be on my list. Stacy assures me that i’ll love it more than MY version, but i’m not yet convinced…though, i’m sure in the end she’ll be right even if i don’t want to admit it :)

All I can say though is that for ayone who loves grapefruit or citrus in general – THIS is a tea to try. I’m in my happy place with this tea.

What’s the base of yours?

Butiki Teas

Kittenna-She had a Guranse base. It was nice because the grapefruit was a little bubbly. But with the Dragonwell the grapefruit was stronger and a little more complex.

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
