Today after breaking up fights with the kids, cleaning up the dumped plate the cat knocked of the counter and making sure all the pets where fed, I sat down with my first cup of tea. Today I decided that first cup was going to be La La Lemon black tea by David’sTea.
The first thing you will notice when you drink this tea is there is a very good punch of lemon, which should not surprise you, after all it is called La La Lemon for a reason. With my usual milk and sugar it seems to give it almost a dessert like taste with out being over sweet. Keep in mind that I use 2 tsp of sugar in about 500 (ish) ml of tea.
The black tea is some what over powered by the lemon and surprisingly with the amount of orange in this tea you hardly taste any of it at all. Some would say that since it is a black tea you would think you’d get a strong black tea taste but in my opinion I think it works perfectly as it is.
The only down side I have found is that 1.25 tsp is enough for a small cup of tea, for my travel which holds 8 fl oz needs about 2 tsp worth the tea to get the same flavour, but really that calling it a down side is a bit of an over statement.
The feelings I get drinking this tea on our cold winter months is one of summer, sitting with family enjoying a cup of lemonade while the kids and family play in the sprinklers while the sun beats down on me. A rather nice feeling when the weather is so cold.
I would highly suggest this tea if you are a lemon fan. I do caution that if you add to much sugar you will get a sweet lemon candy effect, so limit the amount of sugar or sweetener of your choice when drinking this. Further more I will be trying this later with honey, I think the two flavours would worth very well together.
