Watching Red Dwarf with my husband and I felt like a lovely cup of tea so I chose this one at random to drink. It comes in a very lovely multi coloured and patterned pouch with a silver fresh sealed packet inside with the loose leaf tea. As soon as I opened the bag I noticed that the tea contains a good amount of lemongrass. I will take a photograph at some point as I cannot find anything about them on the internet at all. It was sent to me from a friend in Tibet.
Smell is sweet and freshly lemon. A wonderful scent, not overpowering but very notable.
Colour is also a wonderful light yellow hue with a slight dark tinge. Similar to honey.
The taste is very similar to the smell, making this a fresh and lemony cup of tea but not overpoweringly so. Wonderfully refreshing and extremely light to drink. It tastes more lemongrass than standard lemon but to me that is not a problem as I enjoy both.
I think a cup of this after a meal would be a great breath freshener. It could be boosted with a slice of lemon as well or even made into a nice ice tea. So many possibilities with this tea. Not sure if it’s the best lemon tea as named but it is a wonderful lemon tea.
A lovely taste of Tibet :)
