Watching Red Dwarf with my husband and I felt like a lovely cup of tea so I chose this one at random to drink. It comes in a very lovely multi coloured and patterned pouch with a silver fresh sealed packet inside with the loose leaf tea. As soon as I opened the bag I noticed that the tea contains a good amount of lemongrass. I will take a photograph at some point as I cannot find anything about them on the internet at all. It was sent to me from a friend in Tibet.

Smell is sweet and freshly lemon. A wonderful scent, not overpowering but very notable.
Colour is also a wonderful light yellow hue with a slight dark tinge. Similar to honey.

The taste is very similar to the smell, making this a fresh and lemony cup of tea but not overpoweringly so. Wonderfully refreshing and extremely light to drink. It tastes more lemongrass than standard lemon but to me that is not a problem as I enjoy both.

I think a cup of this after a meal would be a great breath freshener. It could be boosted with a slice of lemon as well or even made into a nice ice tea. So many possibilities with this tea. Not sure if it’s the best lemon tea as named but it is a wonderful lemon tea.

A lovely taste of Tibet :)

I have been given this tea by a friend as well. It is very well tasting and I am searching for a source in Canada. I like their packaging-colourful bright bag that is a memento by itself.

The coloured bag was definitely a beautiful keep sake. I haven’t seen the tea online anywhere so good luck in your search. :)

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
