How does grapefruit work so well with oolong? I honestly thought it was going to be slightly gross when I first heard of the idea, and it turns out it’s pretty much actually my favourite thing to pair with oolong tea. In a pinch, I’ve added grapefruit juice to oolong. It’s not as good as Bessie blend, but in a pinch, it works!
Bessie, though. Oh Bessie, you beautiful creature! This tea smells absolutely AMAZING. The dominant fragrance is brisk, bright grapefruit, flanked by the orange and lemon. The oolong lends it a little wholesome substance beneath the citrus. This is one of those uncommon teas I find myself enjoying equally with and without sugar. Bessie’s brisk, energetic, and refreshing, and absolutely perfect.
And I’ve been falling asleep for the past 3 hours because I made the mistake of eating pasta for dinner, which is a recipe for a drowsy Kelsh indeed. Please wake me up, bright tea!
