I was very careful to follow the brewing instructions exactly for this tea. It looked like such a tiny amount of tea leaves in the steeper, but I went with it. It brewed up to a very light golden colour.
I smelled the dry tea and it does smell like white grapefruit. I don’t get much of a smell from the hot tea. I guess from the reviews I read, I expected a strong grapefruit smell. Taste-wise, it seems very bland. I don’t taste grapefruit at all. I’m going to let it cool off and see if that helps.
As it cools, I’m getting grassy, vegetal notes, but still no grapefruit.
I poured half into another cup and added a touch of cane sugar to see if it would bring out more flavour. No go.
Hmm. I might try this again with more tea leaves to see if that helps (it’s new tea, so age isn’t an issue here).
