The taste of this was so strange I can’t tell if I like it or not! The vanilla is definitely the most dominant flavour, with a tiiiny hint of grapefruit coming through on the aftertaste. Kinda like a school kid left behind on a field trip.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 6 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

I do realize that this is a different tea from a different company (that I haven’t tried yet), but I have had Adagio’s white grapefruit and I much prefer it at a 3 min steep vs the 7 they suggest. So, if you want tinker around, maybe that’d be something you’d like. Hope it works!:)

Ah, thanks for the hint – I usually follow the packet brewing instructions on first brew then play around the second but this was just a single teabag I picked up! Though I would be interested in buying another to see if a shorter brewing time would bring out the grapefruit more.
