I’ve been trying the teas in my “dislike” pile as iced tea so as not to waste them, and this one actually comes out pretty okay. A lot of the artificiality of the flavor is more muted when it’s cold and over ice, and it’s great mixed with lemonade. I might actually grab another box for the next family function.

I added three drops each of honey and lemon. Sure, it has them in it already, but I have a voice jury in 3 hours. Going to go eat a small lunch and warm up in a while, but for now I’ll just relax and focus my mind. I love this tea!

I picked this one up last night because I’ve been craving lemon tea. It was $2.50 a box. I was supremely disappointed to find that most store brands aren’t just straight up lemon (which is what I wanted). There were many more honey or spice variations though. I think I’ve had this one before, but I was unsure. The smell of this one is very strong! It smells a bit like cleaner if I try to sniff to much…but also like these lemon+honey cough drops that I had recently. To be honest this freaks me out a bit. A small note: this also seems to have an added 20% vit. C. O.o interesting move there.
This is…interesting. I think what is wrong here is that yes, it is pretty artificial tasting. The ginseng is the most distracting part of the whole cuppa because it imparts this kind of granular taste/feel that I only like with particular teas. The first half of the sip really isn’t that bad and the lemon takes the forefront. It is when you realize that the other players (honey and lemon) want in on the gig that it is a bit unpleasant. The white tea in there really isn’t helping either. If I was sick I bet this would be great because it is kind of soothing on the throat and I wouldn’t be able to taste it so well…

Well, it’s… okay. And nothing really more than okay. The sweet lemon flavor is strong enough, especially in the aroma, the taste is a bit artificial.

It’s not undrinkable. I finished a box today after several months. But I doubt I’ll ever buy it again. But I can recommend this if you love artificial lemon, have a sore throat, or need to entertain guests that you aren’t particularly fond of.

Now that I think about it, this tea reminds me of one of my favorite honey/lemon cough drops :p It’s soothing, and I had this cup just before bed. I suppose it does have a bit of an artificial taste to it, but hey, it’s a cheap and easy feel-better tea :)

Smells like lemon cleaner, yuck. Added honey and… Bleck. Tastes too artificial and the Ginsing/honey flavors aren’t very prominent. Maybe I did something wrong? Just doesn’t taste good.

I am drinking pots of this stuff while studying. It’s not my favourite tea, but it is tasty and warm enough to keep me going. I make a four-cup pot full with three bags of this, and one bag of a generic lemon tisane to add extra lemon flavour. It doesn’t need any sweetening and goes down nice and easy.

This tea has an overwhelming lemon taste. I drank it plain – no sweetener or milk. I don’t get any real impression of the tea. I don’t think I’d brew a whole pot of this – it leaves a rather sour aftertaste. It probably would taste good if I had a cold, when I seem to crave lemon, the more the better.

The lemon and ginseng flavors are muted, almost to the point of being bland. I steeped the bag for the recommended time, but perhaps I should add a minute or two more. Overall, I’m slightly disappointed.

This one isn’t bad. Maybe a little artificial tasting, but with a short steep it’s pretty good, especially with dinner and a movie like last night and tonight. It’s citrusy and floral, and the tea base tastes more like white tea than green. In this case that’s not a bad thing. Someday I might actually restock it.
