28 Tasting Notes
I was not impressed by this tea at all, I love Earl Grey but couldn’t really detect any black tea or bergamot flavours…just a whole lotta berries! Great for a herbal tea but I really needed my morning pick me up. I WILL try what one of the other reviewers suggests and make it iced, that’s a good idea!
This tea smells amazing, looks amazing and tastes (yep, you got it!) amazing either hot or cold. The scent alone makes me want to eat raw tea leaves but that would be bad so I content myself with drinking the tea. Even when it’s stone cold in your tea mug it’s STILL good! Yum! Good for settling upset tummies as well…
This is not so much a tea as a fruit infusion. I found very little tea and lots of berries which made for a very tart, pretty pink infusion but didn’t taste remotely like tea! Do not attempt to steep more than once or you will end up with a lovely pale pink cup of water:)
I am not a huge fan of black tea (unless it’s mixed with various fruits, flower petals, other teas, flavoring, etc… therefore making it pretty much unrecognizeable as a black tea, haha.) At first glance Grapefruit Grey looked like one of the teas I would normally avoid – plain, dark thin leaves, boring but with just a hint of grapefruit scent. I was curious and had to investigate further. As I don’t like strong bitter tea I only steeped it for about 2 minutes, the lovely grapefruit smell was wafting out and the tea was already a dark golden brown so I gave it a try. YUM! So tasty, this has become my favorite Sunday morning lounging in my PJs tea… You could definitely steep it for another minute or so if you like strong bracing teas and it can be resteeped at least once.
