drank Pink Grapefruit Sencha by Zhi Tea
4843 tasting notes


As I mentioned before, I’m always on the look out for that special grapefruit green tea (yes, I know I found it from Lupicia, however, somehow, even though it is the same tea that I tried in Arizona, it doesn’t taste quite the same. I suspect it has something to do with the water, possibly water temperature… I don’t know. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I was in a very magical place – Tohono Chul Park – and that made the tea taste all that much better. I just know that I was mesmerized by that tea and I want that experience again, and even though Lupicia’s tea is the same tea that was offered by the tea shop in Tohono Chul Park… and it IS a delicious grapefruit tea, it just doesn’t taste as magical at home as it did that afternoon in Arizona.)

Sorry for that digression …

Anyway… when I found this tea available from Zhi Tea, I knew I had to try it. I had actually ordered this months ago, but, am just getting around to trying it now! I’ve a lot of tea … as some of you may be aware … and I am attempting to organize it and get my stash under some sort of control, if not a controlled size, then at least a sense of organization to it all so that I can easily find teas that I want. In my ongoing process of organization, I came across this tea and decided it was time to brew it.

And it is YUM! It has a fantastic grapefruit flavor – tangy but not really tart, the sencha balances the flavor out nicely. This tastes more like the Texas pink grapefruit that has a nice sweetness to it to counter the tangy character of it.

I think I shall save the rest of my sample for when the weather is warmer so that I can enjoy it as an iced tea – I suspect it will be marvelous!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
