This tea is only available in store but it sounded sweet and yummy so I purchased 125g yesterday. As I opened the packet I closed my eyes to take in the magical aroma of sweet and fizzy lemon, much like actual lemon sherbet which takes me back to my childhood.

It might smell like it states but the mixture is actually red in colour and while there is not an ingredients list for it so I cannot say what is in the mixture I can spot what look like rose petals, chunks of dried apple, dried lemon rind and hibiscus flowers.

Once brewed the tea is very dark red and looks like red wine. It still smells like lemon sherbet but not as sweet as unbrewed and also with a tang of what smells like hibiscus.

I was a little apprehensive about my first few sips as I am not a hibiscus fan BUT to my surprise it’s not hibiscus heavy. I can taste the lemon which is sweet yet tangy and fizzy with a kick of sweet apple and a tart floralness in the background. Still it really does taste like lemon sherbet and if anything the hibiscus is disguised nicely.

Half way down the cup and I’m still loving it. Imagine adding hot water to two spoonfuls of lemon sherbet and that is what this tastes like. Extraordinarily yummy!

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.
