Love lemon? This organic green rooibos tea brings together lemongrass, lemon zest and lemon myrtle to create an over-the-top lemon extravaganza. It’s completely delicious when iced, and particularly soothing when drunk hot with a spoonful of honey. Plus you’ll find that the green rooibos adds a fresh, natural sweetness (and a ton of antioxidants) for a perfect lemonade twist.

ummm, Lemon grass, need I say more?
I love all things citrus, but lemon grass, a no! a thank-you! I should have paid more attention when I purchased 10g of this, but I am glad that it is only 10g and not a whole bag or whole tin.
But all is not lost, mixed with a little “green and fruity” and it is saved.
Not sure what to think of this one. I have left my tsac in so that might be contributing to the strange flavour I am getting. Or it could be the Rooibos. I am enjoying it but think I may enjoy it better if I drank it hot since I have left this one for about 20 minutes. Still good but I can’t get over the strange flavour. I will repost next time I have it when it is hot.
Not overly enchanted….
The dry leaf smells promising, lemony and tangy; as I like my lemons sour, that’s good! Unfortunately, steeped it just isn’t what I was hoping for, although it is kind of what I expected. I’ve found that lemongrass can be an odd flavour in teas, and I’m getting it here, along with lemon zest and lemon peel which give me more of a lemon-scented cleaner taste as opposed to a lemon juice flavour. It’s a little sweet, and not objectionable, but I can’t see myself brewing this up again for myself. Maybe it would be tasty with some honey and lemon juice, but I suspect those flavours would overwhelm it and defeat the purpose of it tasting lemony in the first place!
Ah well, not too disappointed. A(n expected, for me) miss in the plethora of delicious teas from DT.
Day 83 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge.
1.5tsp in my tea ball, brewed in-cup.
This tea smells AMAZING. Just like lemon curd, I was so excited to drink it. Unfortunately, the taste was not quite as good as the smell suggests. I totally wish I could bottle up the scent and turn that into a beverage! Now THAT would be amazing.
Mmm, Christmas tea! :) My partner put this in my stocking. She’s done pretty well to find teas for me that I enjoy, and you generally can’t go wrong with lemon.
I don’t find this as strong as some lemon tea I’ve had (I recently tried David’s Teas La La Lemon in store, which is lemon with black, and found that had a much stronger lemon flavour, and I also have a terrible habit of adding dollar store lemon tisanes to other teas) but combined with the green rooibos I find this a really soothing anytime tea, since there’s no caffiene.
I do think that I need to get my hands on some rooibos that isn’t mixed with anything else, though, since this is the second green rooibos-based tea that I’ve really enjoyed – the red rooibos I’ve tried hasn’t been nearly as appetizing to me, although I don’t know if it’s just due to the blends I’ve tasted it in.
The green rooibos is what I believe gives this tea its “fresh” aftertaste (I’m not sure how else to describe it), which really makes this tea different from other lemony teas for me. This is probably one that’s going to turn into a regular for me.
I usually bypass the rooibos section altogether, because there’s just something that I don’t like about the flavour of red rooibos. Fair enough.
But green rooibos? Oh hello!
The clerk at Davids convinced me to give this one a go, since I do enjoy lemongrass and citrus teas, and I couldn’t detect a rooibos scent from the tin at all, so I figured, why not.
And you know what? It’s lovely!
I’ve had it hot in the past, and it’s good. But I just poured myself a glass of this bright yellow iced brew, and it’s absolutely delicious. There’s a nice sweetness to it, and the lemon isn’t too tart. You can definitely taste the different layers of lemon flavour as well. Floral and fruity and all-around nice.
If I think about it, I can taste the rooibos note, but it’s definitely not the same flavour as red rooibos. Much gentler, with no aftertaste. I think I might just be a fan.
This is the second “love at first taste” i found at Davidstea. I got to say that i LOVE every lemon things. And when i smelled that tea, i was like, OMG, it can’t be disgusting! Comfort food exists but comfort teas too and Three Lemon Green is one of my comfort teas. Most of the time, i drink it as a hot tea (in fact i don’t remember if i ever taste it as an iced tea…).
I bought a large quantity of it when one night, Davidstea Facebook page added a big online promotion….1$ for 40g for a limited time (but all the bags you want). The next morning, there was no bag available so i was lucky!
I bought this the other day along with raspberry nectar and green and fruity as part of a promotion that DT had on for iced teas. I actually thought I’d like this the least out of the three, but it has turned out to be my favorite.
I’m sipping it iced right now at work, and it has a lovely bright and fresh lemon scent and flavour that’s not the slightest bit bitter or overly tart. The lemongrass comes out the most for me, and is delicious with the green rooibos. I can’t wait to try this hot with a bit of honey, I’m sure it’ll be fantastic. Iced though, it’s perfectly refreshing for summer. I think I’ll be reaching for this one quite often.
