Details

Grapefruit (Latin: Citrus paradisi), one of the world‟s most popular breakfast fruits can now be found in almost every supermarket from New York City to New Zealand. And, as an important source of vitamin C, eating grapefruits is actually encouraged by virtually every nutritionist in the world – which is strange considering the fruit began its life with the moniker, “The Forbidden Fruit”. In fact, the name grapefruit was not coined until 1814. From then it would not be until 1870 that the first grapefruit nursery was cultivated. Now, the state of Florida, the world‟s grapefruit leader produces almost 2,000,000 metric tons of the fruit annually – not a very forbidden fruit these days! The fruit has a bittersweet citrus character, which blends amazingly with our high grown Ceylon tea. Brew it hot, or cold over ice, add some sugar and watch the flavor open right up.
