drank Grapefruit Green Tea by 52teas
4920 tasting notes

I have been watching Supergirl and totally forgot to drink this so it is warm, though nearing cool. I was worried because I am not a huge fan of grapefruit but I won this and still wanted to give it a try. Honestly, it is quiet good. Not surprising as most 52 Teas are quiet good but I did not expect to enjoy a grapefruit tea all that much. In fact, I was already trying to figure out who I would be giving the rest of this too after I inevitably tried it and didn’t like it.

The grapefruit flavor is there and distinct but not too in your face. I don’t love how sour/bitter grapefruits can be but this is the flavor without the sour/bitter. And it goes really nicely with the green base which is fresh and almost buttery. This is honestly a really nice citrus tea. So maybe I won’t be passing it along just yet. Thank you Anne for sending this my way!

The only show I’ve watched from the Arrowverse is The Flash (and I’ve loved it) but I’m considering watching either Legends of Tomorrow or Supergirl next; would you recommend Supergirl?

I watch the entirety of the Arrowverse and love it all. Each show has its ups and downs for sure but I enjoy them all. When I first watched Supergirl I hated it and refused to watch it but then I got super bored and it was on Netflix and I have grown to love it so I would recommend it but warn that it might take a bit to get into.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
