This is considered Vintage TeaWorks “Fresh and Racy” offering.

I’ve smelled a lot of tea but I’ve never smelled a tea like this before! It’s quite amazing! I smelled very fresh green tea with grapefruit, floral, and apple notes. It is very special. There is a little bit of a ‘dry’ smell to it much like you would find in a drier wine.

Upon my first sip – I was near speechless! THIS DOES TASTE LIKE WINE!!!!!
I’m totally astonished at how much this company MADE their teas to resemble wine! They say are NOT trying to recreate wine just celebrating wine and tea together! I would say their mission was certainly accomplished! WOW!

I have to say the grapefruit flavors are my fave part in this one, tho! Not over the top but very nicely flavored!

I LOVE love LOVE this tea! OMG!

For a couple of years now, I’ve been on a quest of sorts: to find the best grapefruit flavored tea. It all started after visiting a tea house in Arizona, and loving the grapefruit tea that I had there. I even chatted with someone else from Steepster, and he managed to locate the tea supplier of the tea house, and learned that the grapefruit tea that they serve there is the one from Lupicia. I had tried the tea from Lupicia… and somehow, it just didn’t taste the same. I suspect it has something to do with the water composition in Arizona, or something because I am not able to get the grapefruit green tea from Lupicia to taste as good as I remember the green tea was that I enjoyed at that tea house.

But I think I may have found the grapefruit tea! And can you believe that it happens to be a wine-infused green tea with grapefruit peel? This is absolutely MARVELOUS! The grapefruit is prominent, but, it captures the sweet elements of the fruit while the bitter elements of the grapefruit are somehow softened or eliminated … I don’t know. But this is not bitter, this just tastes like sweet grapefruit. With a hint of fruity wine. And sweet, slightly vegetative green tea.

And it tastes wonderful. I love this.


Ooh this sounds interesting. Your posts on the vintage wines have had me intrigued already but this one might be something to really try :)


Someone on here was looking for the perfect grapefruit tea, but I can’t remember who…. maybe Alphakitty??


I don’t remember seeing anyone else looking for it… but it has been a quest of mine for the past few years… after visiting Arizona. It’s funny, but I actually found THE tea that the tea house used … the tea that I fell so much in love with, but I don’t know if it’s just the memory of the place or the water quality or any thing else… but, the tea tasted better in AZ than it did when I tried it at home.

But this … THIS tastes like the tea I remember… or at least, it evokes those same wonderful feelings that the tea in Arizona did. And really, that’s what it’s about, I think.


I was indeed looking for the perfect grapefruit tea! Definitely adding this to the list… probably far ahead of a few other orders I should make soon.

Oh goodness this is delightful! Thank you LiberTeas for sending me a sample of this! I was so happy to find it today in the box you sent me!
You know I was wanting to try this and this is one I did not order. I think you may have said this was your favorite … anyway – it is delicious!
Its very sweet, fruity, yet grassy and even a little buttery at that!
It has a lovely palate cleansing note to it as well!
Full review on SororiTea Sisters on the 12th!
I did get three of the Vintage Tea Works teas ordered but this one will be ordered next month! YUMMY!

Not typically a green tea fan so I figured I’d bite the bullet and try this one out next. The dry leaf smells a lot like grapefruit which is interesting and made me even a little more nervous to see how that flavor might translate into the taste of the tea. However, as the tea steeps it smells more and more like apple! I’m getting excited. I am a white wine fan…I prefer the sweeter whites. So far this smells pretty sweet…

The taste is crisp and tart with a hint of sweet. I’m really getting the grapefruit flavor again and it isn’t bad at all. I also get a little bit of grape too. It isn’t bad, but I don’t think this one is for me. I think I should stick to straight green teas.

This is really, really nice. The wine notes are bold but not overwhelming, and the green tea clearly shines through. There’s a remarkable floral quality to the dry tea that reminds me strongly of grape must. It’s also present in the liquor, but more subtly. A really nice blend.

Sipdown! Thanks to Phi for the sample!

I’m not a big wine person, so I was reluctant to try this blend. It turns out to not be very wine-like, though. The brew actually reminds me a lot of Nina’s Paris’s Versailles Rose. The grapefruit tartness is the same, just over a green tea base instead of a black one. I got two enjoyable steeps out of the leaf. The second steep was softer in flavor but sweeter. I let part of the second steep get cold so I could try this as an iced tea. Yum! Sweet grapefruit juiciness over a grassy green base. I can see this being great as a cold steep at the height of summer.

After receiving some Vintage Tea Works tea for a past birthday, I’m unashamedly hooked. The Green Tea Sauvignon delivers a light and pleasant fruity, floral taste with grapefruit peel and marigold petals. One of the best ways to start off the morning!

Another tasty wine-inspired tea from Vintage Teaworks. I don’t know why I held off trying this one for so long!

The blend consists of dark twisty green tea leaves and some petals. The smell is intoxicatingly fruity, but not overwhelming. For some reason, I wouldn’t have imagined grapefruit from either the aroma or taste without reading the description. It struck me much more as a peach and tropical fruit combination. The taste is crisp and fresh, a little tart, like a fruity and slightly dry white wine. Both the fruit flavors and the light grassiness and mild astringency from the tea base contribute to the impression. I would say there’s a little green apple as well—definitely the greener and fresher end of the fruit spectrum. But still no grapefruit! Even so, this was a highly enjoyable flavored green tea, and very distinct from the numerous others out there. Thanks beelicious!

Sweet with a little bite. I think I prefer this over the Oolong, where the Oolong can be overly sweet sometimes I find this one a little more even-tempered.
