teaquilibriumpinkgrapefruitFlavoured oolongs, for lack of a desire to be tactful, are most often disappointing and frequently downright terrible. I was apprehensive of a pink grapefruit oolong, and after seeing the cacophony of ingredients paired with the tea, I wasn't feeling any better. It includes carrot flakes, apples, eucalyptus, oranges, and more. Weiiiird.

I went with the company's suggestion and steeped the tea with 195° water for three minutes. The liquor is a beautiful orange with a subtle hint of pink, no doubt from the touch of hibiscus, and the tea is surprisingly tasty. Downsides include that I have a hard time picking out the oolong itself and that it is more of a tart citrus flavour than specifically grapefruit.

Other than those minor qualms, this is a great blend. It is fresh, tart, and fun. My favourite part is the bold addition of eucalyptus. It adds a great flavour and a well-balanced layer of depth.

My second, five minute steep is much smoother and more demure than the first, though still potent enough. While not as wow, it is still pleasant and worth the second steep, but I won't be braving a third. As an iced tea, this is unique and refreshing. As with most teas, I prefer it hot, but I can recommend it cold with enthusiasm.

This is an interesting blend with a very different feel than most. It is versatile and a far cry from the average oolong. It is a unique, one-of-a-kind blend that you'd be hard-pressed to imitate yourself, and I would happily buy it in the future.
