5 by 5 Tonics Co. - Grapefruit Oolong Bitters 5oz
Five by Five Grapefruit Oolong Bitters is a foray into the ethereal flavor of oolong tea. A light and delicate bitters that captures the floral aroma of oolong tea and grapefruit with a balanced amount of spice and bitter. These bitters are crafted according to the philosophy behind Chinese tinctures.
The mildly oxidized green tea is a powerfully unique and revered flavor. As a bitter, the flavors of grapefruit and oolong fill in the “high” notes over a mild bitter background.
Mixing notes: While versatile enough to stand up in any cocktail, these bitters pair exceptionally well in negronis, champagne, tiki drinks, or plain soda water.
Tasting notes: Light floral oolong flavor, medium spice and gentle but present bitterness.
