drank Lemon Cream Pie by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

I’ve had this tea twice now with the only difference between brewings being the addition of milk in the first round. (Agave syrup used both times). Yet I’ve gotten completely different flavours from it.

Round one it was heavenly. Such a nice deep lemon vanilla flavour. It reminded me of lemon meringue pudding that I’ve had. So thick and rich on the tongue. Just perfect for a dessert tea or a before bedtime snack as it is caffeine free. It moved to the top of my list of citrus teas and I was happily awaiting a chance to have it again.

Tonight I skipped the milk as I’m trying to cut back on that habit and just found the whole thing falling flat. Barely a lemon taste and certainly no vanilla. I steeped it for the same amount of time and you’d swear that all I did was walk by and wave my tea at the water hoping it would flavour it that way.

So I don’t know what is going on here as I’m sure milk doesn’t make that much of a difference. I put the tin back in the cupboard to punish it and maybe lingering in the back for a few more weeks will teach it to brew properly.

Bio

I’m probably considered a heathen by true tea afficienados. I tend to accidentally over-boil and put too much milk in all my tea. I seem to land in the black tea/earl grey category when it comes to favourites but am trying to branch out. Living in a small town I can only experience non-bagged tea via online shopping which sucks to say the least and I’m always on the look out for a good store. Drop me a line about one if you have an idea. Bonus points if Canadian. :)
