I’m finally getting the chance to sit down and review this! I’ve already had a cup last week and gave one to my friend (who loved it btw). So now I need to write about it too!

The dry smell is sooo delicious. The lemon-lime tart is definitely identifiable, with the creaminess and citrus goodness. Steeped for around 4 minutes, although I know it could handle longer. The steeped smell retains the cream tart image, just a bit fainter.

Boy, is this ever good! I seem to recall my first cup having a bit more of that bitter lime peel tartness, but this one is very very smooth and creamy, a lot more vanilla and more lemon. In fact, this cup is predominantly lemony, hmm it’s like a more tangy Lemon Chiffon, the lime is still there a bit in the flavor too though, that key lime pie from Lime Chiffon is here too!

Overall, this is a really good combination of the lemon and lime chiffons. The extra vanilla really adds to the creamy aftertaste, and I think it might also be the honeybush that makes for a more cake-like addition, as I just checked out all three rooibos’ ingredients and this one and lemon have honeybush, while the lime has only rooibos. Anyways, I’m getting too technical, this is delicious. Still don’t know my favorite, darn it, but since this one combines the two other favorites, it might take the first place spot. Ah, they’re all good. Thank you Della Terra for another delicious caffeine free tea!

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
