I used to eat a grapefruit every morning for breakfast. Its sweet tart taste was a perfect wake-up call. The translation from simple puckery fruit to smooth Oolong tea is perfect for this Grapefruit Oolong from Adagio Teas.

The dry leaves are brown and black with some stems and plenty of grapefruit pieces. The aroma the ingredients provide is tart and light but with overtones of sweetness.
The liquor brews a deep brown-amber with tinges of yellow around the outside. The aroma becomes more savory but is essentially the same as the dry profile holding on to the tart grapefruit overtones and a mild sweetness.
The flavor is smoother than expected. There is a simple bite at the tip of the tongue and some light dryness as well, but very little astringency. The tail keeps going and going with a tart dryness remaining persistent. The grapefruit sweetness holds for the first few moments but dissipates somewhat quickly.
I would recommend this tea to any fan of Oolong, Grapefruit, fruit flavored teas and Darjeeling teas.
