The smell of this tea once brewed is strongly reminiscent of the Rainbow Sherbet tea…a sharp, creamy tang. I was rather impatient and brewed this up to drink it straight away, so that was mostly the flavor I got as well.

A citrusy note was a bit more prominent in the aftertaste, but I have to admit I found that creaminess off putting – it’s just not what I associate with lemonade.

Maybe after a night in the fridge the flavors will settle a bit, but for now I will say it’s not my favorite of the 52teas I’ve tried. Honestly, that’s kind of a relief though – one less flavor I have to stock up on!

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
