drank Lemon Yunnan by Samovar
53 tasting notes

Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect from this tea. I’ve had a sample of this sitting in my cupboard for a while now and this morning I decided it was finally time to try it out.

The dry leaves were notably interesting to look at, with a nice mix of black and green.

I have to say, I’m actually impressed. I’m normally not a fan of overly flavoured black teas, but somehow Samovar pulls it off again and again. I’m not getting an overpowering punch of any one particular flavour, but I’m getting a nice rounded cup that I think I can actually see myself drinking every day.

Colour me impressed. A lemon tea that I actually like? Oh, Samovar. Only you. =P

I don’t care for most non chai or dessert flavored blacks and I don’t like Yunnans, but I think a Lemon Yunnan (i.e. Lemon Pepper) would be pretty good… or at least for a marinade for chicken or fish:)

Raffi

Now that you mention it, I can actually see this being used as some sort of marinade. I’ve never considered that before… Might have to look into that.
