Simply The Zest wasn’t quite the best!
This was my second mate tea, and having only Cocoa Canela to compare it to it was hard for Simply The Zest to come out on top, I mean not only do I have a sweet tooth but I am addicted to chocolate! Now this doesn’t mean Simply The Zest is a bad tea, it’s acutally a really delicious tea, even more so if you like lemon.
Dry the tea leaves are a vast rainbow of colours and sizes and on the nose it smells like lemon for sure, I hear people talking about the scent of the Mate coming through, but this is something I can’t distinguish I hate to admit it but I do not know what plain old Mate smells like. While steeping the tea has an aroma that strangely reminds of neo-citron, glad it certainly doesn’t have a similar taste!
The final beverage is a nice light golden tea, with a delightful lemon scent to it, for me it required two teaspoons of sugars, as I like citrus but I am not a fan the overly tartness of heavy citrus, especially lemon. Once it got the green light from my taste buds I thoroughly enjoy this tea, perfect morning pick me up for those that do not indulge in coffee. Stay far AWAY if overly citrus drinks are not up your alley as this one will be too much for you.
