I was super apprehensive about this tea. DT’s grapefruit blends are either absolute favorites (Ruby Red, aka Grapefruit Squeeze) or completely vile (Grapefruit Granita). On top of that, I don’t really love super floral teas, and I’m not particularly partial to oolong blends.

What on earth possessed me to even try this tea? A 20% discount and the hope that the hibiscus in the blend would, somehow, make it magical.

Well, it did. It’s light. It’s refreshing. The rose flavor is so subtle, especially when iced, that it’s not overly floral. The oolong flavor grounds it just a bit, but it really takes a back seat. The grapefruit and hibiscus play soooooo well together to my tastebuds. There’s a little extra hint of citrus from the orange peel and a slight sweetness from the pineapple and apple (without noticeable apple flavor, which I LOATHE in teas that aren’t apple teas). I love a tart tea, and this is a winner. #teamhibiscus FOREVAH!
