This tasting note has been made possible by Rachel – Thank you Rachel for sending me a sample of this blend to try!

I don’t have a lot of experience with the citron fruit, although I did have a citron marmalade once that was really quite delicious.

The flavor is really quite nice in this blend. The creamy vanilla dominates. The fruit flavors – apple and citron – aren’t as distinctive, its more like I can taste a fruity “medley” as opposed to a distinct apple and citrus flavor. The apple flavor does become more distinct in the sweet and smooth finish.

The green tea base is nice. I definitely prefer Adagio’s green tea base to their black tea base, which is a good thing in this particular blend, because the tea flavor is quite prominent. It has a pleasant fresh, vegetative flavor to it. Just slightly grassy, just slightly sweet, and I can detect no bitterness in it. Very enjoyable.

This is really a very tasty blend.

I had to consult wikipedia on the topic of ‘citron’ here. You see in danish citron=lemon and I had the hardest time ever believing you had never had anything with lemon (and I also wondered why on earth you refused to just say lemon)
Great was my astonishment to learn that in english citron=whole other fruit! O.O They’re called ‘cedrat’ in danish. Never heard of them before.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
