This tea smells just like lemonade with a warm spiciness added. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this tea, I don’t really know if I like cardamom or not. I know that I do like lemongrass and lemon verbena. The tea smells like a vegetal green tea with a little lemon noticeable. Without sweetener you taste a grassy flavor, followed by a tart, citrusy note. With a little sweetener added everything blends together very nicely into a perfect mix of green tea, light lemon flavors and a slight spiciness. I like that the lemon is too overwhelming, it’s more balanced. I’m happy to say that I like this tea more than I thought I would!
