The name of this tea intrigued me more than anything else. I mean anything with the words ‘Battlestar Galactica’ in the name has to be good right?

It’s just ok for me. It’s a lot like a hot raspberry lemonade. The lemon in this is a tart lemon, not a creamy lemon. Definitely too much lemongrass in this blend. But it is drinkable.

Thanks JoeCool (Nicole) for sending this to me to try.

Update – lowering my rating as I seem to like this less and less as I drink it (or maybe as it cools).

Alas, alack! I made it, but then, I still like it. Heh. I do find it interesting, though, that Nicole thought there was too little lemongrass while you found there was too much. (As stated in my reply to Nicole, I don’t like overt lemongrass flavor either! Bleh!) Perhaps the percentages in Adagio blends are always different from bag to bag … an off-putting thought! Lemongrass, lemongrass: why are you so changeably fickle? :P

Ah well. Perhaps I should rework this blend. HWDFI: How Would Dwight Flavor It? XP

Funny enough, I have the remains of Nicole’s bag. :) I love the name btw.

Hmm, that’s right! So much for that theory! :P
