I was so pleased when I opened the bag for this—it’s like POW lemon right in your face. Nothing subtle about the flavoring here! I like my lemon blends strong, so right off the bat this tea was off to a good start.

The lemon is really strong when brewed—bright and citrusy, I feel like this would be a great tea for those early mornings when you have to drag yourself out of bed. But the base is actually stronger, surprisingly! This tea starts lemony and finishes lemony, but in the middle it’s a delicious, grassy, ever-so-slightly smokey gunpowder. I am definitely going to try this iced with sugar, it’s already so refreshing hot and I’m sure those qualities would be even better cold. Urgh, I’m already regretting only getting two ounces of this! Good thing H&S is only a subway ride away~

I loved this one too… it makes a nice cold brewed tea.

OK, so this morning I wanted lemon badly and reached for my Stash Lemon Ginger. I used only 1 bag and got mostly ginger instead of lemon. Am adding this H&S to my shopping list.

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
