“Day three” of 52teas advent. This note seems to be malfunctioning on multiple levels. Sorry!

the dry leaves are like a cross between delicious lemon meringue pie and fabric softener.

The liquor has more of a sanitized leafy scent but the taste is all lemon dessert for me. It’s a multiple part tasting experience: sweet and soft (marshmallow), lemon, sugar, then tart astringent green leaves. Aftertaste is very sour, as if I had just bitten into a lemon. I’ve had many kinds of citrus teas but I’ve never actually had one that seems to channel lemon flavour. By default this is the best lemon dessert tea I’ve ever had…

The downsides are that the sanitizer/freshener quality gives it a chemical funky taste on some notes. The multiple flavours may be jarring and the green tea brisker than what some may ideally want.

I don’t know, but this tea makes me want to embrace a soft white kitten, while eating lemon meringue pie and walking on fluffy plump clouds. At least, I think it’s the tea that makes me want to do that. It could be the lack of sleep. Possibly.

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Tea Preferences: My absolute favourites are the floral inclined oolong and white teas. I also enjoy unflavoured green and black teas. Puerh is a hit or miss.

Fruit, cedar, anise, and vanilla are good. Black licorice, bergamot, and cheap chocolate are less good. Jasmine, cinnamon, and hibiscus are usually too strong in teas for my taste, but otherwise I like these flavours!

Ratings:

95-100: A Personal Favourite; I’m never without this tea.

90-94: Great! I’ll try to keep a small amount around.

80-89: Enjoyable; I may buy more at some point.

70-79: Nice, but not something I’d drink often. I may have a few problems with it.

50-69: Something about this tea falls flat for me. Still drinkable.

30-49: This isn’t a particularly pleasant cup.

1-29: There’s no way to put it nicely..
