Another tea from Amy. Thank you!
Honestly I was afraid of this combo, green tea, matcha, both quite delicate flavours. Maté, quite on the other side of the spectrum and grapefruit is somewhere in the middle. When I took the bag off, there was a pithy aroma of grapfruit peel and honestly I thought it was quite genuine and real aroma, however weaker than I have been expecting.
Brewed and used colder water (I assume around 80°C, maybe even less) than their recommended 100°C (212°F)! gave me bright green-yellow tea. It is quite similar to the hue on the outer wrapping of tea bags.
It has smelled wonderfully after grapefruit and in taste it was nice level of flavour of citruses. The maté was almost unnoticeable and sadly, the green tea was quite flat — which was expecting as it is a tea bag.
Now, I am craving grapefruit tea… any opinions?
