This white tea shines bright! The Cinnamon and Lemon are evenly distributed as well! It’s warming, but refreshing in a hydrating type of way. YUM!
This one also smelled kind of soapy while I was brewing it, but drinking it cooled, I’m not getting any soapiness, just a herbally citrus flavour with a bit of spice. I bet this made a great iced tea way back when it came out like 2 years ago! There’s still a bit of bai mu dan flavour peeking out here too, which is really tasty. Overall, a pretty good tea.
ETA: Second infusion was good; third started to taste too much like lemongrass.
Backlog: This is what I drank most of the day today. I resteeped the last of my leaves at least four times, and each were tasted, which is kind of nice given that my taste buds are compromised at the moment. Moreover, the tea was really soothing and I really needed soothing.
I’ve got tons and tons of unflavored tea samples to get to. But I also have a couple of unopened pouches from 52 Teas. Since I was in the mood for something flavored, I went ahead and just opened one of my pouches. This particular one looked particularly appealing because the picture on the package featured a steaming mug of tea, and this morning has been quite chilly. This tea tastes absolutely perfect for a chilly morning. It would also be quite comforting for when you have a cold. The warmth of the cinnamon is truly relaxing. I’ve always been a fan of the way Frank does lemon flavor, but this one is a bit …less than ideal. There’s definitely a sense of herbal flavor here because of all the lemon tasting herbs that have been added. Yes, it’s lemon-y, but also herby.
I quite like this. Not my favorite, but definitely good. I can see this really perking up with a dollop of honey and spiked with some grated ginger. Not in the mood for sweet right now, but on the right day, this could be wonderful. :)
I’m really excited for the return of steaming hot cups of tea on chilly days. Love it! Unfortunately, it also means I’ve got to pack away my pretty dresses until next year. :( ah well. Time for cuddly sweaters! and puppies! They are so desperately cuddly when they are cold. hehe
When I first saw the name of this, I was kind of like mehhhh I don’t know. But my stomach has been really mad at me. Like, if my stomach was a cat it’s one that doesn’t know when to just stop meowing. I don’t know why I am using a cat metaphor here.
So I remembered I had this tea and thought it would probably be really comforting. Just the smell of the leaves made me feel better.
The lemon flavor is stronger than the cinnamon, and I still taste the floral flavors of the base. It’s really light and refreshing, despite having these flavors. I can’t believe how fast I am drinking it.
So really, don’t let the name mislead you. This is a nice blend of flavors, sweet and citrusy, with just a little tasty kick of cinnamon.
Just finished this after a night at work…I immediately had to try it again. It’s really comforting with a mellow flavor. The layers of lemon take center stage ahead of the cinnamon-which is how I like it. It has the perfect amount of tartness.
I bet this tea will be great during the winter months coming home from a snowy wet day and even iced for the summer. All in all it’s a great tea….it’s opening my taste for white teas
