The Grapefruit Oolong is available in a sample size for $2, 2oz for $6 and 16oz for $29.
When I first opened the packet I would have sworn that someone near me cut into a fresh grapefruit. All I could smell was that unmistakeable sour tang. I could see pieces of peel and bits of marigold petals. Once brewed it smelled a little sweeter, but still very much like grapefruit. It tasted sweet, but also a little tart. I didn’t get much of the marigold, which I think is good given my dislike of flowery teas, but I got plenty of fresh tart grapefruit. Again, I think this would make a nice iced tea in summertime, but I enjoyed it hot as well.
