I’ve had this Adagio sample since forever, and I don’t think that I’ve ever tried it. It’s definitely not what I expected in the flavor. The dry leaves are large and pretty, and have a tangy citrus aroma. The tea smells of soft and sweet citrus. The flavor is of tangy grapefruit and sweet orange. There is almost a creaminess to the aftertaste with a hint of zesty citrus. This definitely is not a pure grapefruit flavor, there is more sweetness than tartness in the cup. It’s also a very delicately flavored cup, as none of the flavors stand out very much. If the flavor were a little stronger then I would rate this tea higher, but it’s still not a tea that I would drink very often.

-Dry blend has large green and brown tea leaves and twigs with pieces of orange peel and yellow petals.
-Dry leaves smell lightly of tea and tangy citrus. Tea liquor aroma is of soft and sweet citrus.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium yellow color.
-Tangy grapefruit and sweet orange flavor. Almost creamy and zesty citrus aftertaste.
-Best with sweetener.
-Fait tea. Nice citrusy flavor, but too light. More notes of orange than grapefruit.

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
