January subscription tea 3/4
So I’m suuper backlogged on recording teas owing to a very fussy baby, but hopefully I can get through everything tonight! And then get some other useful household things done too!
This tea and I already have a complicated relationship. When I initially opened the pouch, I was overwhelmed with delicious grapefruit flavour, and was quite excited to try the tea. However, as I brewed it, and then tasted it, I think my desire for grapefruit dropped considerably, and therefore, my opinion of this tea. It’s very much in-your-face grapefruit; despite a large strawberry chunk in my infuser, I was not able to taste any strawberry, nor the whisper of vanilla. I think the tea would have been better with a heavier lean on those two flavours, as the grapefruit just took over entirely, making it a very one-note tea. The green rooibos, which I can’t remember the flavour of offhand, was unremarkable.
Overall, not a tea for me unless I’m having some sort of crazy grapefruit craving, but it’s probably not a bad tea in itself. I do wish it was more strawberry-vanilla, for sure; perhaps those will come out in a cold brew?
