drank Lemon Drops by The Tao of Tea
2307 tasting notes

Alright – this is a sipdown. I guess I’m going overboard with the lemon today.

I brewed this up extra STRONG knowing I was going to make it an iced tea for lunch. I added some turbinado sugar and lots of ice, along with about 1/2 cup of soymilk. Wow, it is good this way… like a bubble tea on steroids! Better than any drink I’ve had at Starbucks. I might need to get some more so I can do this again. :)

bbt on steroids… love it!!!
Too bad this is a sipdown, after finding an awesome way to make the tea!

TeaBrat

I know… right? But I can make some more this way I think!

I just had one last night. Peppermint black. I wish I could find a way to make that at home!!

Hey, has anyone ever made tea flavored ice cubes or popcicles? I never have, but it does sound good.

TeaBrat

that’s a good idea!

Missy

Scott I’ve been thinking about making tea popsicles for a bit now. Summer will be here soon. I’ve also wondered about tea slushies. I could make a bunch of tea ice cubes and blend them up with maybe a fruit juice.

Tea popsicles is a genius idea and I have been contemplating making them this year. I am still finding the right brands for them, Bigelow peach tea would be one.

I wonder if red rooibos ones would be any good? [slight gag]

Missy

Lol Scott. I do love my rooibos. I’ll try it and let you know. You won’t have to experiment with things that make you gag to get the answer. ;)

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
