drank Key Lime Ceylon by Fusion Teas
2388 tasting notes

Thank you Veronica for sending a sample of this my way!

When I think of lime teas, my mind immediate goes to the deliciously tart creaminess that is Lime Chiffon. I get very excited and want to try them all. However, I need to remember that key lime does not equal creamy lime deliciousness. Alas, this tea has fallen victim to my lime tea hopes as I found myself rather disappointed. The sad thing is the lime flavor in this is actually pretty accurate to the fruit and it goes nicely with the base. However, that is all there is – lime flavor and black base. A tad bit boring when compared to my beloved Lime Chiffon.

Key Lime Ceylon Tea, you are just not doing it for me. It is not you, it’s me.

Yeah, this wasn’t my ideal lime tea either which is sad since it’s a decent tea.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
