I was going through my stash last night and I located this tea … and decided I needed to have some this morning. (Well, it’s still morning for me since I woke up about an hour ago, and I am in desperate need of a caffeine fix)

This is just as tasty as I remember it. The lemon is very subtle throughout the sip, but it really grabs me in the aftertaste with its tartness on the palate. It is never too tart though, it is more of a sweet lemon taste with just the right tart tingle at the end. The guayusa is strong and it is an agreeable flavor: smooth like a black tea but without the astringency. It is not bitter, and I definitely can feel the stimulating effects going to work as it is helping me to shake that desire to crawl back into bed and sleep the rest of the afternoon away. (I must say that waking up really is the worst way to start a day)

Anyway, I love this. It was just what I needed.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
