drank Carolina Honey by Argo Tea
358 tasting notes

I got the sweetest surprise on Christmas Eve – this tea was waiting for me at my door from a wonderful tea friend! I like honey and lemon, so this was right up my alley, and living in Carolina, of course I love the name! I had a cup of this yesterday afternoon, and it was exactly as expected. It has a fresh, tart lemon flavor with a hint of honey sweetness. Add a little milk and sugar and it becomes a creamy, lemony dessert cup. The tea comes in a beautiful recycled glass bottle, which looks so pretty sitting in my tea cupboard. I’m glad I have this tea to keep me warm during the winter months ahead, and every time I see it, I will be reminded of my far away tea friend. :)

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs with yellow and orange petals.
-Dry leaves smell like fresh lemon with a hint of sweetness. Tea liquor aroma is malty with a sweet honey aroma and a small taste of tart lemon.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium brown yellow color.
-Tart lemon flavor with a rich malty finish. Strong honey lemon aftertaste that lingers.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A unique cup that becomes a sweet creamy decadent lemon flavor with milk and sweetener. Wonderful honey and lemon aftertaste.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
