I think I let this sample from OMGsrsly sit too long to get a strong sense of white grapefruit, but that doesn’t change the fact that it still makes up pleasant cup of white tea.

It’s sweet, floral, suggestively tangy, with an almost peppery note. There’s also a sweet, vaguely textural element that reminds me of crystal/rock candies but it’s very light.

Flavors: Bamboo, Citrus, Cucumber, Floral

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 4 min, 30 sec

Oh too bad. This one was very grapefruit when I got it.

It was extremely disappointing but not surprising given how I stored it. I’ll just have to pick some up myself when I’m up to buying tea again! :)

Sounds lovely though, even if less grapefruit than expected.

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Subjective Rating System 3.0:

90-100: My absolute favourite tea. I’ll impulsively buy in large quantities and hoard like a dragon.

85-89: A favourite tea. I’ll try to keep this one around when it’s practical.

76-84: A good tea, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Alright, but I may have a few problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Average to mediocre cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab tea I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This tea is the embodiment of the primordial swamp, the unholy abomination that is a chimera. It’s very gross and I’m almost positive it doesn’t exist.
