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 am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
