I am absolutely crazy for Meyer Lemons. Ordinary lemons, I’m just kind of meh about (exception: freshly harvested lemons, preferably from my gramma’s backyard). But Meyer Lemons, I go crazy and buy boxes of them when they’re in season, and then I make Meyer lemon bars. So, when I see Meyer Lemon teas, I BUY! It happened when I was browsing on Stash’s website (even though they were teabags which was the only way their herbal Meyer Lemon blend was available), and now it happened when I was on the Teas Etc. website a couple of weeks ago.

This blend certainly did not disappoint. Teas Etc has managed to capture the delicious flavor of the Meyer Lemon. Sweet, lightly tart, and very yummy.

I’m so in!!!! I love the Meyer Lemons sooo much, and the only Meyer Lemon tea I’ve had is from The Republic of Tea and it tasted like poison and sadness.

Meyer Lemons are delicious, though I’m pretty much a fan of all things lemon.

Showing my ignorance here … difference between a Meyer Lemon and the sad little artificially-forced-to-ripen ones we get in the Midwest?

I’m with you, gmathis! I had never heard of them until about six months ago, and now I am seeing it everywhere. Still haven’t tried anything that says Meyer Lemon on it, though.

Meyer Lemons are a cross between a lemon and an orange (or maybe a tangerine). It is still “lemony” but it is sweeter and not so pucker-y tart. They are only in season a short time (like November through February or March, I think), and I usually can only find them in markets like Whole Foods… although I am sure that will change as they are becoming more and more popular.

My husband’s grandfather has a huge Meyer lemon tree in his orchard, and I go Meyer Lemon crazy every winter :) Meyer lemon marmalade, salt cured Meyer lemons, Moroccan spiced Meyer lemons, Meyer lemon coffee cake… I can’t wait!!!!

I will definitely be on the lookout for these at Whole Foods and elsewhere! Thanks!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
