From Herbal Infusions

White grapefruit is blended masterfully with high altitude Formosa Oolong.

Grapefruit, a member of the citrus family, can trace its origins to the West Indies. It is believed that grapefruits originated from a natural cross-breed between the orange and the pomelo. In the 1820s, grapefruit was introduced to Florida, where today, a majority of the world’s supply is grown. The fruit’s name describes the way it grows; in grape-like clusters on the tree.

Oolong teas are made from large tea leaves, and the finished tea can vary greatly in appearance and flavour. They are the most complicated of teas to manufacture and mastering the art of crafting them is a test of patience, skill, and dedication of the tea master.

Hmmm. I decided to try this one again, this time adding some ginger into the mix. Oh my goodness, what a difference! It tastes a lot like DT’s The Skinny, which is great. It has a bit more of an oolong-y taste to it than The Skinny, which I find mostly dominated by orange and ginger. This one still has great undertones of grapefruit and ginger, but the flavour is much more complex and interesting. I like it so much more now, and am glad to have an entire pot of it in front of me :-)

This is the first flavoured Oolong I’ve tried that I feel successfully marries what I love about Oolongs with the added flavours. Better yet, this is a nice light Oolong, which I’m partial to. Most of the flavoured ones I have tend to be darker.

The green freshness of the base blends so well with the fruity freshness of the grapefruit, which manages not to be overpowering. I can taste the base loud and clear and an intriguing wave of grapefruit follows, like I’ve squeezed a little fresh grapefruit into the cup. Very subtle yet memorable, the way I like ’em. It makes me think I could drink this one regularly. It also re-steeps remarkably well for a flavoured tea; after a first steep, I transferred the leaves to my gaiwan and got another two or three infusions out of it before going to bed. I drank this hot but did chill a small cup of the first infusion. It was nice and, interestingly, it tasted more roasty Oolongy cold than it did hot.
