The smell of the raw (is that appropriate?) tea is very lemon but in a sweet sort of way. I used the boil the water then wait 2 minutes to approximate 180F, and then steeped for three minutes for 1 tsp of tea. The tea really unfurled, but I wasn’t seeing much of a color to the tea itself.

The tea smells less lemony and a little more like cut grass. While not unpleasant, it is not a very strong smell. At first, the taste is lemon, then just hot water at the end. Nice, but not really what I’m looking for. There is this ephemeral taste on the back end that get maybe every other sip that I guess is the green tea.

That taste is getting stronger the deeper into the cup I go and the lemon is lingering more in the aftertaste. I’m still not sure I completely like this tea. It’s good, but I think I should try this iced. I bet it’s really quite refreshing iced.

Oh, wow, I think I finally hit the green tea. That’s interesting. Slightly bitter but without the astringency I normally associate with bitter tea. Not sure if I like this flavor. It isn’t bad or horrifying. I certainly like it fine, just not sure if I want to pay for “like it fine.”

So I’ve been a vagrant, but I’ve settled back down state-side and bored out of my mind. Left home alone to my own devices, I’ve taken up to a new level of “tea drinking”. Which, mind you, is what my collegial buddies call my rising alcoholism.
Needless to say, this afternoon I partook in my normal beveraging. But today for the first time in a long while tea has factored in, due to a cold front on my normally lovely East Coast. So I figured I should tell you all. And the most important factor in this story is some lovely lemon flavored vodka.
Lemon flavored vodka in addition to a normally lemony flavored tea is wondrous and warming. I might even have added honey, a sugar I save for when I’ve forgotten to eat. So my friends, as colder night draw upon us, what particular concoctions do you generally prefer as a warming and buzz worthy create.

I have been craving citrus lately – probably due to a decided lack of sunshine down here in the Sunshine State for most of last summer and this winter. Anyway, I’ve been bringing home bags and boxes of oranges, clementines and such, and even smearing Meyer Lemon marmalade on my morning toast.

So, this tasting note may reflect a little bias. Because, oh my goodness, this is so good! A delicate citrus scent while brewing, and a delicate flavor in the cup. The tea is a pale grassy color and a light, bright flavor with no mineral taste that I can detect.

Now I wish I had some lemon curd… Must go do the shopping now.

Finally. This is the first non-bag, non-Bigelow tea I’ve ever tried. It was wonderful! It’s the first tea I had my family try, using the Adagio UtiliTEA Kettle I bought them for Christmas, and I just might have converted these coffee-and-soda-drinkers to a healthier lifestyle. Thank you, Adagio, for potentially extending the lives of my loved ones.

Because of my incredibly satisfying first foray into non-bag tea, I am giving this tea the highest rating possible. Maybe one day I will look back at this tea and scoff at my naivete, with the disdain of a runway model toward her high school yearbook photos, but until that day, ignorance is bliss.

Glad your 1st loose experience went so well! I can’t wait to hear about more of them.:)

Loose tea! Ah, that’s what it’s called! Thanks!

Welcome to the ranks of the newly addicted. But it’s a GOOD addiction! The world of tea is huge. Have fun exploring.

I am mainly drinking this because I have a sore throat. AWESOME. It has a nice citrus flavor, but I think there is too much lemon. Would have liked the orange to be more noticeable.

Also I just ordered from Della Terra teas for the first time. I got the chocolate teas try me pack, since they seem to be sold out of s’mores otherwise, and that’s really all I wanted to try.

Much different than I expected from the initial whiff of citrus in the bag. A more woodsy flavor comes out of the tea leaves and you get a kick of orange on the way down. Really great for your nose, seems to be opening up my sinuses.

Can this tea be renamed to Fruit Loops? Smells and taste like fruit loops.

If you like fruit loops you will like this tea. I like fruit loops.

I totally had the same reaction! Unfortunately I’m not a big fan of Fruit Loops so this one entered my swap rotation…

Having some fruity reliable Citron Green to wash away the taste of Foxtrot popsicles, which were not a good call on my part.

The first time I had this in a green tea sampler from Adagio it turned out to be the only green tea that I like by itself. I gave away the rest of the samples except for this and the gunpowder that I use for Moroccan mint blends sometimes. Greens aren’t exactly… ahem… my cup of tea.

It tastes like Fruit Loops. That’s the one thing I keep seeing over and over and it’s true. It tastes more like Fruit Loops or some other sort of fruity something or other than a green tea. So, if you don’t like green tea but you do like slightly sweet and fruity flavored teas, this might be something you’d like.

This wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and that’s a pretty high praise considering how much I hate citrus in my tea. Honestly, I expected a lot more citrus in it just based off the scent of the dry leaves. When I opened the package there was an overwhelming lemon scent. What it ended up being is a very light green with a hint of citrus.

The resteep lost the citrus flavor entirely and left me with a glass of a barely flavored cup of tea. I’ll probably save the last of this for when I have a cold and only steep it once.

I do think this is another green tea that those who don’t typically like greens would enjoy.

One of my favorite greens ever. A nice light & natural lemon-lime flavor.
Great iced with or without sugar..always with a little citric acid or vitamin C to add an acidic element and it’s a great iced tea. This citron flavor compliments the green tea nicely
