drank Lemon Meringue Rooibos by Tealish
1114 tasting notes

As advertised, this smells like a tart lemon meringue pie. Steeped it smells little, which surprised me.

Drinking it is like sipping a very, very tart lemon pudding, with the egg white meringue sneaking in at the very end and lingering a bit. It’s crazy good, and even better with a bit of sweetener to remove some of the extra tartness. Some sips I notice the meringue, and others I miss it… however I love tart lemon pudding (and have yet to make some since going grain-free) so this is a true delight. Will definitely re-order more, although I did get a 50g tin of it.

If it helps, the lemon masks all rooibos taste, flavor and feel. Or, at least it did to me.

i don’t think it’s the taste…. it’s a twang i get that announces a new allergy…. i try not to play too much with it. i love the smell of some of the blends…. buuuuut =0(

Oh, I understand that all too well. Note to self: remove all rooibos from swap with JustJames. Oh, wait, I’m good since it’s all flavored black tea. :)

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
