SPOILER ALERT!

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me a mug full of … Lime Jello Salad tea.

This was another tea on my wishlist from 52 Teas so thank you Frank for including it in the pack. One of my favourite desserts is keylime pie so I was hoping this would be sweetly limey. I had a flash back just then of being called a limey when I was in Las Vegas earlier this year. Anyway enough with my memories, lets get to the tasting already.

This is my second cup of the day :) Upon opening the packet I was drawn in to the super strong fruity citrus fragrance. it’s divine! I couldn’t put my finger on the smell until I read that it contains pineapple and then it clicked into place, it does indeed smell more of pineapple than lime but the two are very similar. I wouldn’t have agreed before today that pineapple could be similar in any way to lime other than they are both fruits but Frank has somehow managed it. Like some sort of crazy willa wonka sweet. Crazy Frank tea perhaps would suffice?

Since it’s a green tea I shall brew this with warm water and for only a short steep. This is mostly what I was testing with my first cup.

The tea once brewed reminds me of citrus/fruit sherbet as it’s super fruity and super sweet in fragrance. Amazing!

Taste wise it’s still rather pineappley but again there is a definite citrus sour tang beneath the sweet fruit. It’s naturally sweet enough that it can easily be enjoyed without sugar and the green tea is not harsh/bitter in the slightest. It also has a tutti frutti vibe going on.

It’s a delicious combination that has added magic and whimsy into my lonely day. I hope you all enjoy your tea as much as I did. :) And if I don’t speak to anyone of you before the day then Merry Christmas to all.

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.
