One of the teas I picked up while on vacation. I’m always intrigued by an organic fruit infusion because, candidly, they’re so challenging to develop. Many reasons for that; not gonna get into all of them – but suffice to say this one was a mix of professional and personal curiosity.
The dry leaf visual is a little generic to me with it’s majority apple base – to me that says there’s probably going to be a decent amount of natural but generically fruity tasting sweetness and I think that assumption was pretty spot on. Does lean citrus in taste too though and because the balance of citrus notes is so nicely in the middle of sweet and more zesty/tart it conveys pink grapefruit pretty well. Certainly not the nicest pink grapefruit blend I’ve ever had, but knowing the restrictions they were probably working with I think it’s very solid! It’s mostly just that it’s not defined enough that I think most people could confidently identify it as grapefruit without the name filling in some of those gaps to better flesh out the taste in your head…
Refreshing, though! It will be an easy thing to sip through this summer.
