I got this in my recent order with Adagio to replace the Lemon Meringue sample a friend sent me. Sadly, this is a weak replacement.
I’m not sure if it’s the tea itself or the way I’m brewing it, but I don’t taste any lemon at all. I tried it hot a few nights ago, and right now I’m brewing hot and pouring over ice, 4tsp/8oz, steeping 5 minutes. I might have to add another teaspoon or two, but all I really taste is the rooibos and the sugar and a bit of cream and milk. There’s a faint hint of sweet lemon, but it’s nowhere strong enough for me.
Bought three ounces of this, so I’ll experiment a bit more, but all in all I’m not in love with this.
On the plus side, I’m settling into a Hollow Crown marathon on BBC right now, and it’s incredible. Halfway through Henry IV Part 1 at the moment, and I’m looking forward to finishing Part 2 tonight!
