It’s Spring! Maybe summer is around the corner. This tea has a very lovely floral/lemon aroma from the dry leaves and after brewing. The taste a smooth gentle floral lemon with some mint. I happen to really like Lemon myrtle after my trip to Australia. I know the lemon is strong but I like it. The tea itself is not particularly strong and doesn’t fulfill my need for a full bodied evening non-caffeinated tea, but I really didn’t think it would be. I think this would be good cold but Idon’t have enough to do a cold brew. It is a nice Spring-y tea for the start of spring weather.
I had another cup left in the tea pot. So this has been sitting for a bit. It hasn’t been steeping or anything. The lemon myrtle is much stronger and I can easily identify it as lemon myrtle not regular lemon. Still like it. Reinforces my thought that it would make a good ice tea.

is the lemon myrtle made by the same company? I may need to look into giving them both a try:)

You can get lemon myrtle at a store that sells herbs. I also know that Simpson and Vail carries it.

I love that all the descriptions of lemon myrtle includes the phrase… " more lemon-y that lemon". I developed a love for it when we were in Australia. Lemon myrtle soap, shampoo, lotion,everything. It is harder to find the essential oil here but as TeaBrat says you can find the herb at many herb stores. It really brightens up an iced drink well.

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking ;-p
My husband of 42 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say. :-D
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading. I volunteer at my “old” school teaching reading and I volunteer for the blind. I am trying hard to lose weight and am really trying to increase my exercise. I am now walking about 4 miles a day and I am trying to do some core work for about 30 min. 3x a week.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 32 years. In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send some to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
