I was surprised with this one. In quite a wonderful way.
I was apprehensive when the salesperson brought this one down in the store as I’m not generally a fan of the citrusy teas, but it smelled wonderful. The lemonyness doesn’t stand up and kick you in the face, but instead is slightly earthy. I had this as a tea to go in the store – it took the super hot water and the much longer than usual steep time very very well. I took it with a bit of agave because I knew it would be steeping for so long, but you could easily do without. It tasted a little like lemon lozenges but not so strong. While I don’t think this will become one of my go-to teas, I think I’ll definitely be getting myself a small bag for an early winter morning tea. It would also be great with honey for a cold or sore throat.
