I got this in my fire sale box from Rachel (iHeartTeas). I realized yesterday that there are two Rachels, so perhaps I should specify which one from now on. I’ve never tried and Zoomdweebies teas, and to the best of my knowledge they’re what turned into 52teas (correct me if I’m wrong!)! This smelled soooooo good in the bag. I love lemon, I love spice, what could go wrong? Well apparently nothing, because this is a great tea. It’s not heavily lemony, but it’s still nice and bright. The spices (cinnamon only according to the packaging, but I am definitely getting some clove, maybe even orange peel) are wonderfully warming, not overpowering the lemon but accenting it. If you could make mulled lemonade, I think it would taste a lot like this. It’s also great hot and cold (tea cools down pretty fast with the AC blasting), which is always a big bonus. This is a more wintery tea I think, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to save it until then!

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!
