This is for the under-appreciated hero of the Thanksgiving dinner: Every year, it sits there quivering, unassuming, bright and cheerful and fruity… and mostly neglected for the likes of turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes.

It’s not your fault, Lime Jello Salad, that your deliciousness is overlooked on such an occasion. Don’t look at me with those pouty marshmallows, condemning me for my turkey lust. Here, I will make a tea inspired by you, and maybe then I will get to enjoy some of your delicious flavors—AFTER I have some turkey!

My wife makes a lime jello salad with lime jello, pineapple, and marshmallow every Thanksgiving. I’m pretty sure I still haven’t tasted it, but it sounded like a great group of flavors to combine with our awesome Chinese sencha green tea. Enjoy! And happy Thanksgiving!

Another sip down! I woke up this morning very excited for tea, any tea, and this was the first one that I came across. Our indoor cat got outside late on Monday night, so we spent all day yesterday in the cold rain searching for her and putting fliers on every door/business in our area. Luckily our Greyhound found her last night just up the road from our house. Yesterday was a day with no tea and it was a sad day indeed. So this morning we decided to celebrate the return of our prodigal cat with some Lime Jello Salad.

The dry tea smells really sweet, just like a packet of dry jello mix. I didn’t see any dried pineapples in my pack, but there was a lot of white, fluffy marshmallow root. The flavor is exactly like lime jello, and adding a little sweetener brings out a small hint of the marshmallow. To me, the lime flavor is a little artificial, but lime jello tastes artificial also, so it really does live up to its name. My mom would always make me jello when I was sick as a child and she would let me drink a little of the warm jello before putting it in the fridge to set. This tea reminds me of that warm jello flavor!

-Dry blend has green tea leaves and fluffy marshmallow root.
-Dry leaves smell sugary sweet of lime jello. Tea liquor aroma is strongly of lemon-lime.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium green color.
-Citrusy lime flavor with a marshmallow lime jello finish.
-Best with sweetener.
-Good tea. Flavor is exactly like lime jello.

I"m so glad you found your cat!!! That’s a nightmare of mine (although I currently don’t own any pets…)

Josie Jade

Thanks, Kittenna! It was a nightmare, we were just heartbroken. She is happily at home now, laying in the sun looking out the window. I think she prefers it on this side of the window!

Lala

My sisters house cat used to try to escape all the time. We would always find him just sitting on the front step. Not sure if he was too scared to venture any further out.

ashmanra

Oh gosh! That would be horrifying. I am so glad you found your kitty!

I used 1 tablespoon of dry leaf for 375 ml of water.

There’s a bitter earthiness in the flavour. I am detecting lime flavour with marshmallow sweetness. The tanginess of the pineapple is present.
There is a cloying stevia-like sweetness in the middle of the sip.

As the tea is allowed to cool, I’m starting to taste the roasted flavour from the green tea.

Lingering aftertaste is a very authentic lime jello flavour.

As the tea cools further, the roasted green tea is becoming present in the aroma and balancing nicely with the lime jello scent. The cloying sweetness is faded.

I may have have infused this tea for too long. I should maybe try to infuse closer to 2 minutes next time.

SPOILER ALERT!

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me a mug full of … Lime Jello Salad tea.

This was another tea on my wishlist from 52 Teas so thank you Frank for including it in the pack. One of my favourite desserts is keylime pie so I was hoping this would be sweetly limey. I had a flash back just then of being called a limey when I was in Las Vegas earlier this year. Anyway enough with my memories, lets get to the tasting already.

This is my second cup of the day :) Upon opening the packet I was drawn in to the super strong fruity citrus fragrance. it’s divine! I couldn’t put my finger on the smell until I read that it contains pineapple and then it clicked into place, it does indeed smell more of pineapple than lime but the two are very similar. I wouldn’t have agreed before today that pineapple could be similar in any way to lime other than they are both fruits but Frank has somehow managed it. Like some sort of crazy willa wonka sweet. Crazy Frank tea perhaps would suffice?

Since it’s a green tea I shall brew this with warm water and for only a short steep. This is mostly what I was testing with my first cup.

The tea once brewed reminds me of citrus/fruit sherbet as it’s super fruity and super sweet in fragrance. Amazing!

Taste wise it’s still rather pineappley but again there is a definite citrus sour tang beneath the sweet fruit. It’s naturally sweet enough that it can easily be enjoyed without sugar and the green tea is not harsh/bitter in the slightest. It also has a tutti frutti vibe going on.

It’s a delicious combination that has added magic and whimsy into my lonely day. I hope you all enjoy your tea as much as I did. :) And if I don’t speak to anyone of you before the day then Merry Christmas to all.

Enjoyed a few more cups of this today, thanks to a sample from Sil! It’s been a nice day here, well suited to this tea’s refreshing lime zestiness. One of my favourite green teas — yum yum!

Sipdown! Courtney sent me this one a WHILE ago and I’ve had it before, but I’m just now writing a tasting note. thank you, Courtney! I really like this one! There is certainly plenty of sweet marshmallow flavor and bright crisp lime flavor. It seemed it was more marshmallow the first cup and then more lime the second steep. Very nicely flavored! It goes well with the green base. I’m going to miss this one, as I love mallow root and I don’t have many other teas with mallow root. But I just got my 52Teas order today! It is my first order with them but I couldn’t resist!

Lime jello salad tea? How fun! I love the flavours involved here too. Lime and pineapple and marshmallow sounds good to me.

The scent when I opened the package was intoxicating – really strong and sweet and bright. Couldn’t wait to try it. I’m guessing this would shine as an iced tea, but I felt like a hot tea and it was still quite good. The sweet candy-like lime jello flavour was spot on, with a nice pineapple in the background an a faint creaminess from the marshmallow. I steeped for 2.5 mins, but I’m thinking it could probably handle 3. The rest of my sample will be flash-chilled so I get to try it iced. I’d happily drink this one again!

Twelves Teas of X-mas #7 (the last tea I can recall blogging about was #5 so I think I might be missing one somewhere in there). Somehow Frank has managed to make this tea taste not like lime, but actual, bona fide lime jello. I’m not sure if I can describe what the jello part tastes like but there’s clearly something more there than just the tang from the lime. The marshmallow works perfectly with the other flavour and don’t seem out of place like they do in other blends.

I’m noticing a theme of green-teas-with-marshmallow in this sampler, BTW. :P

That’s funny. When we were finished making the samplers this year it dawned on me: wow, we got a little marshmallow happy this year. LOL. In my defense, I think marshmallow is an awfully fun thing to put in tea, and I don’t see it being done by any of my competitors (though I could be wrong about that).

Frolic

The marshmallow teas are some of my favorites!

Indigobloom

go marshmallow go! love it :P

Yum. I got this on a whim with my first ever 52Teas order and I’m quite pleased with it. My newfound love of marshmallow root compelled me to add this to my cart.

The lime taste is really lime jello to perfection. I love the addition of marshmallow root, just because I love marshmallow root haha. It’s really a lovely tea.

I can’t say I’ve ever even heard of lime jello salad, much less tried it, but I’m enjoying the tea regardless.

Update: The second steep of this is still quite tasty. I’m very happy with this tea.

Backlogging

I love lime. Like I really really love lime. Some of my favorite teas have been Franks lemon lime cheesecake honeybush and Numi’s super tart Desert Lime tisane.

So while I don’t eat jello(gelatin and all) I was happy to see this tea. That and the fact that Frank does amazing things with marshmallow and I’m now convinced that he needs to offer a marshmallow sampler along with a cheesecake sampler.

So back to this tea. It smelled delicious and I was able to identify lime by my blind sniff of it before I checked the label. It’s really not tart at all but still very limey. I didn’t read the description before I drank it and wasn’t able to identify the pineapple but I can definitely see it there in retrospect. There is a general fruitiness about it. But oh the marshmallow. So very good!

Probably going to be a pouch for me. Frank you’re killing me this month. I’m already dipping into next’s months tea budget and will probably have to go beyond that and spend some christmas money. I’ve been trying to have less coffee outside of the house in an attempt to convince my husband that all the money I’m saving by carrying a tumbler of tea everywhere should go back into being spent on tea.
