drank Electric Lemon by DAVIDsTEA
25 tasting notes

It’s a drowsy Monday afternoon, I figured I would give this tea a shot. Surprisingly, this has woken me up from my near coma state.

I have tried several lemon ginger teas and was never really fond of them, however this one was pretty drinkable!
Upon opening the package, I caught a pungent lemon scent that my friend informed me smelled like “Lemon Pinesol” (I’m not so sure about that!). When steeped, the warm, earthy, ginger flavor is boosted by a fresh lemon undertone, and finishes with a wonderful bite. It seems to me the tea features the ginger more than the lemon.

For this tea I did not add any sweeteners, and I gave it an average steep. But in the midst of trying to stay awake, I accidently steeped at a warmer temperature. It was still a pleasant experience, but I am curious how the flavors complement one another when I steep it like David’s intended :)

A fellow tea-drinker with an insatiable curiosity, I’m bound to try almost anything once! Embarking on this leafy journey, experiences are logged here :) While I mostly find my loyalties lie with black tea, every tea has its own health benefits and flavors that’s worth giving some attention to.

Rating note: There isn’t really a method to my madness — er.. how I rate teas. I just go with my gut instinct. It’s the right thing to do.
