AJRimmer Advent Day 8

I cold steeped this and it tastes like… grapefruit. I’ve always had a hard time with grapefruit. I think it’s the bitterness. I haven’t had a grapefruit in over 20 years and I could totally pick out what it was, which gives credit to T2 for such spot on flavor. I’m not enjoying it, but I keep reaching for the cup for another confirming sip! LOL! Still glad for that chance to have tried something new!

Oh sorry, I didn’t know! I remember not liking grapefruit growing up, but that was so long ago, so I bought some recently to make sorbet, and nope, super bitter! I do enjoy grapefruit flavored things though since they usually just take the best parts of the flavor.

This looks like a fun company!

@Lexie – I think Dustin will agree that most of their teas are disappointing… But I do like their French Earl Grey!

Dustin

It’s not a flavor I run across in tea often, so I didn’t even think to put in any preferences/dislikes category! I remember having the fruit as a kid covered in enough sugar to neutralize the bitter and that was okay. I offered this cup to my husband and he told me he strongly dislikes grapefruit too, so I learned something new! :D
I haven’t been super impressed with T2 so far, aside from them getting their grapefruit flavor so realistic, but I guess they could wow me in the next 15 days left in my advent.

I also don’t like straight up grapefruit fruit or juice, but have found myself warming up to grapefruit flavorings in tea. Not to the point where I would want an entire pouch of one, but where I’m usually okay trying out a sampler of it. I think I might be adapting (at least to the flavoring of it) because sometimes bergamot reads as a “grapefruit” note to me.

Like AjRimmer, I’m not one to eat a grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice, but I do really enjoy the flavor in things! Especially in green teas.

I might be in the minority here, but I love grapefruit! I’ve never come across a grapefruit tea though, at least before seeing this note. Sounds interesting!

Dustin

It’s funny how certain flavors get a super strong positive or negative reaction! Like cilantro.
I think Lupicia had a grapefruit tea at one point. I had a single tea bag sample at one point years ago. I recall that one being a lighter version of this one, but it was a long time ago.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
