I like having a nice lemony dessert tea in the collection, but haven’t been able to find one that I completely love & adore & must have at all times. I was a fan of the lime chiffon tea from Della Terra, but couldn’t manage to finish the rather large pouch I had ordered… for some reason, it started to taste a bit too artificial and gross. I saw that this one had nice reviews, so I decided to give it a try!
This tea is quite similar to the lime chiffon blend, but doesn’t have that distinctive citrus flavor that lime contributes. It has quite a creamy mouthfeel and a little hint of a vanilla in the background. I think of this tea as more of a lemon + vanilla blend. It actually reminds me a lot of the lemon bar filling without the crust. Sweet, lemony and with a hint of tartness.
Even though I do like this tea, the underlying artificial note sort of ruins the cup for me. Now, it isn’t enough to keep me from drinking, but I prefer lemon dessert teas to at least taste a little less fake. Sadly, not my favorite lemony tea, but still drinkable.
