From Single Origin Teas

Grapefruit rind and essence mixed with a rich Chinese black tea makes an excellent blend for our grapefruit tea. With little astringency due to the citrus, grapefruit tea makes a delicious breakfast tea. Pieces of white grapefruit gives this flavored tea a beautiful appearance and a lovely aroma.

We find that this Grapefruit tea makes an excellent alternative to Earl Grey. The exotic taste of the grapefruit blends perfectly with the tea to create a highly aromatic cup of tea!

I was excited to try this sample as I love grapefruit. Like I’ve been eating about 5 a week for the last few months L-O-V-E. Surprisingly I’ve never thought to look for a grapefruit tea…I’ve just never come across one on my own and probably assumed it wasn’t a popular flavor. I do know a lot of grapefruit haters out there although I don’t know what they have against it now that the markets are saturated with the newer sweeter ruby varieties. Maybe they need to become easy to peel? I saw some white grapefruits a few months ago being sold as “cocktail grapefruits”, they were twice as much per pound than I usually pay so I didn’t get any and of course I have regretted it ever since. Of course they haven’t returned since, but then again the other grapefruits are getting sad now so I guess the season is over…all the better for having this tea then.

This tea is pretty much what I never knew I wanted earl gray to taste like. It has an amazing grapefruit zest flavor. It is spot on what I smell and taste when I peel a grapefruit. There’s no weird artificial flavor, nothing that’s missing, just high bright citrusy goodness with a solid black tea background to hold it together. I got a second steep from this but the black tea was weaker and the citrus note a bit more pithy. Still good though.

This will definitely be able to tide me over in the off season.

I haven’t had this one, but Adagio has a good Grapefruit Oolong.

I’ll have to try to try some sometime.

T&C TTB#15: This smells like tons of grapefruit but the flavor is much milder. It could be a bit stronger in flavor and the base could still handle it, I think. But this isn’t artificial in anyway and as noted in another review, it would make a good EG substitute if you didn’t care for bergamot.

This is a really good alternative to Earl Grey.
The dry leaves are overwhelmingly grapefruit, it smells like the zest of 100 grapefruits.
KEEP CALM.
The steeped leaves are also very grapefruit-y. The liquor is a deep reddish-amber with a mellow citrus-y aroma. The grapefruit is at the forefront, but it does not overwhelm the flavor of the tea. There is a very nice secondary floral note, and the tea leaves a subtle citrus flavor behind. It isn’t the least bit astringent.
