Teeny Tiny TTB Round 2

Hooray, more caffeine-free! I found several interesting rooibos blends worth trying in the box, huzzah. Lemon is one of my favorite flavors, and I’ve tried several different lemon dessert rooibos blends, but none of them has been quite right. So here’s another contender! The red rooibos is mixed with citrus peel and what I assume is lemon balm? Ah, I see it’s lemon myrtle. I admit to not knowing the difference. This tea has literally zero dry scent, ha ha. Poopy box, you stole it all! :P

The steeped tea, however, is quite fragrant and reminds me of lemon drop candies. This is quite nice! It’s definitely more of a refreshing lemon than a dessert one, but it’s not overly tart or sharp. It reminds me a bit of lemon candies but without the sugar. I don’t taste the rooibos base at all, which is a shame since I do actually like rooibos. There’s a little bit of an aftertaste issue because the flavoring is so strong, though. Which is a shame!

What is the best lemon tea you’ve ever had?

Cameron B.

Ehhh probably Lemon French Macaron from Butiki, though I wish it were a bit stronger. :)

I also really enjoyed the Dammann Frères tea I had yesterday – Noël à Venise.

Ah, yeah, Butiki’s was pretty good. Did you ever try H&S’s Wedding Tea?

Cameron B.

Yeah, I enjoyed that one a lot, too. :)

Just jumping in to say that Lemon French Macaron is also my favourite! I liked Harney’s Wedding Tea too but it’s weaker on the lemon than Butiki’s.

I’m so far behind in my logging. Yikes!

I got this from Lariel a while back (when?).

A nice China oolong with a strong scent of peach. Luckily it isn’t as overly peachy as it smells. Oolongs aren’t my favorite teas but I’m always ready to try them in case I find one I’m in love with.

Flavors: Peach

Nice bright lemon flavor. Not a sour lemon. I taste the lemon myrtle most. I love, love, love lemon myrtle. Ever since we went to Australia I have had an obsession with lemon myrtle! Not sure if i taste the chiffon/pastry but it really doesn’t matter to me. :-)

This has been the household go-to tea for a while. Only a bit caffeinated, and oh so wonderful. It’s even better if you pair it with a bit of Stevia leaf. Delightful tea that has a citrus aftertaste.

This golden monkey is so good, especially considering the price comparative to other golden monkey teas. The dried tea smells fresh, almost like hot cornbread. the leaves are long and twisted with a lot of gold buds, and golden tea hair left behind in the tin. the brewed tea is dark gold, and smells very musky and a little chocolatey. the taste is like a good quality black tea without any bitterness, only a bold and rich taste. I was surprised by how unique it tastes, making it hard to pick words to describe it. i can say that I will keep my big tin full of this tea as long as presto carries it

great flavored green. the flavor is a little strong, making it hard to taste the green tea but still a great cup. be careful to use cooler (175) water and to steep for no more than 3 minutes, as it can and will get bitter. but when steeped correctly, a great tea for any time

Honestly, I love white peony. My friend had the red fruits white tea from presto and enjoyed it, so I figured why not try the black fruits? Well I steeped it with a little extra tea since whites are so subtle, but honestly, it still disappointed me. I tried different temps and times, but honestly it was just not that good. I’d rather buy some of the expensive white peony from the shop downtown than save a few bucks and drink this kinda flavored warm water.

Very delicious, earthy, pu-erh. Certainly an acquired taste, but I highly recommend it.
