This is a fantastic lemon tea. The lemon is definitely present but not overpowering, and almost tastes like lemonade (but not quite). I might try it iced as well. I would recommend on steeping the full six minutes, the shorter side tends to make this tea a little bland.

Boiling 6 min, 30 sec

Don’t you find it gets extremely bitter when you steep it that long? I need to find a way to enjoy this tea that’s not just iced!

I don’t, but I also steep my tea quite long! I did steep it for 4 minutes a few days ago, and threw in a lemon slice for half a minute, which seemed to up the lemon?

I usually steep 1 minute with extra leaves then pour it over ice. I’ll do that now, and compare a longer steeped hot cup. I’m curious as I haven’t had this in at least a couple months!

I’m actually not a huge fan of iced teas, but I think I’m going to try it with this one!

I’m back in Winnipeg now, so regular access to all my teas! (Though I do miss Ireland quite a lot.)

I mostly drink black teas (anything with cinnamon is fantastic), with a few white teas as well.
