I’ve liked most of the Davids Teas I’ve tried so far, but this one maybe isn’t for me. I love lemon, but there’s not nearly enough flavour here to really satisfy my tastebuds.
There’s plenty of lemongrass in the dry mix, with lemon myrtle and pieces of lemon zest, too. Green rooibos as a base. I can taste lemon in the finished cup, but it’s just lacking some of the oomph I expected. I’m used to my lemon strong. It’s odd, because it smells of lemon, almost like lemon curd, it just doesn’t seem to translate all that well. It’s on the sweet side, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing where lemon is concerned.
I can taste lemongrass primarily, which is smooth and hay-like, and goes really well with the green rooibos base, which is similarly mellow and herbal-tasting. It’s by no means a bad tea, just not quite what I was expecting. Probably my fault for building it up in my head, but come on — anything called Three Lemon should be screaming lemon in my book. It’s pleasant, but it doesn’t stand out enough to become a favourite, sadly. Still, thanks to Queen of Tarts for sharing this with me!
