From DAVIDsTEA

David was in L.A. when he had his lemon-black-tea revelation. It was early in the morning, the sun was bright, the joggers beautiful. He took a sip of a citrusy black tea and dreamed of starting a tea shop all his own. A place where you could find the smoothest, most citrusy organic black tea on earth – with lemon oil, orange oil and real bits of zest. (Truly, La La Lemon makes anything seem possible).

I like this one. I get how the lemon flavouring is in your face, but this one I enjoy. This is a tea that I bring to work, because I don’t have to worry about steeping times and being all finicky about water temp and keeping an eye on how long it’s steeped for. Because I don’t bring extra special tea’s to work, this one does just fine.

I cold brewed this one, and I really like as an unsweetened iced.

JustJames

maybe i should try it iced…..

Dear La La Lemon,
Why do I always overlook you? Your lovely rich black base, and vibrant citrus punch is SO refreshing, even hot on a cold day, and was just what the doctor ordered to end and awful week! Even the vaulting pony wanted to share you with me (but since you were merely a cup to go, I didn’t feel like sharing).
Please jump off the wall at me more often, so I remember to add you to my continuously growing collection!

So on a DavidsTea run today to pick up some of the new tins, I asked for a cup of something lemony to cut through the mucus from the bronchitis my mother in law so generously shared with me. I had a cut of Bravissimo going, but while that was tasty and soothing indeed, it was kind of adding to the problem. When I got there, I asked for something lemony, and I was offered this and three lemon green. I went for this, as I kinda needed a caffeine boost too. It was a really, really shitty morning. Almost a “walk out on my job and tell them to stuff it” morning.

Anyway. I let it steep too long (boo) and I had honey instead of my usual sugar. Still, it was soothing and helped restore my voice, so yay for that. Still, I don’t think it’s one I’d reach for again.

If you have some Electric Lemon left, it would definately do the trick! Unfortunately, DT has since yet to wow me with a lemon tea. Maybe the best (and healthiest and most efficient) means to kill your killer throat mucus would be to squeeze some real lemon into a tea??

Yeah, usually I reach for honey lemon tea, aka hot water with honey and lemon juice, but that just wasn’t an option today. Ah well, next time!

Shoutout to shmiracles for sending this tea my way :)

First time I had this, it was absolutely TERRIBLE and I had no idea what to do with it so I drank like 2 or 3 sips and it went down the drain.
I had this other tea not too long ago, Aloalo from Lupicia, and it had that similar weird tart taste that did not work at ALL. Then I decided to throw it into a mug full of ice cubes and see how it’d do iced and it was TONS better.

So now, I’m sipping down the last 2g of this and making it iced! Let’s see if that saves this tea.
Dang. This tea is just… tea. It tastes like the generic iced tea that you can get from the soda fountain at restaurants.

The boyfriend and I each got a travel glass of this in store yesterday for their Earth Day promotion. I was excited that one of the options was a tea I hadn’t tried.

I wasn’t a fan, but it seemed like this was substantially over-steeped. It was incredibly dark and tasted very bitter. The boyfriend quickly noted like others here that this tastes more of lemon peel than lemon fruit. For me it was more like a really bitter cup of black tea that had a lemon candy dropped into it.

So, while this was probably the fault of the brewing conditions, I’m not sure if I’ll try it again. It would probably be perfect for iced tea, but I might prefer just to add my own lemon.

I’ve found that with most teas bought to-go in a DT store, the leaves are either scalded or oversteeped, which is sad. We tend to save the bag of leaves in a separate cup until we can get home and experiment on our own, or if we really do just need a tea on the run, we go for an herbal or rooibos. shrugs I’ve tried many of their tea samples and thought I didn’t like it, only to get it home and realize I’m in love lol.

I’ve never been in a DT store … do you mean to tell me they don’t have hot water spigots at different temps?

Jessie

They don’t! There is often a surprising lack of care with the to-go teas and tea of the day samples.

Michelle Butler Hallett

Wow. I’m surprised.

This is a fantastic lemon tea. The lemon is definitely present but not overpowering, and almost tastes like lemonade (but not quite). I might try it iced as well. I would recommend on steeping the full six minutes, the shorter side tends to make this tea a little bland.

Boiling 6 min, 30 sec

Don’t you find it gets extremely bitter when you steep it that long? I need to find a way to enjoy this tea that’s not just iced!

petitecanuck

I don’t, but I also steep my tea quite long! I did steep it for 4 minutes a few days ago, and threw in a lemon slice for half a minute, which seemed to up the lemon?

OMGsrsly

I usually steep 1 minute with extra leaves then pour it over ice. I’ll do that now, and compare a longer steeped hot cup. I’m curious as I haven’t had this in at least a couple months!

petitecanuck

I’m actually not a huge fan of iced teas, but I think I’m going to try it with this one!

I have been wanting to try this for a while now and finally got around to purchasing a sample the other day. I was intrigued by the idea of a lemon black tea. I am a big fan of lemon, but it has to be just right, I love creamy lemon. So I added milk to this, and to my surprise it didn’t curdle. This tea was not very good, it is a candy lemon flavor. I found it tasted like a cross between lemon zinger herbal and tetley black tea. It also had a dry mouth feel which I can’t stand. I took two sips and then dumped it out. I’ll be throwing the other 6 g I have left in the garbage

Sil

creamy lemon…have you tried lemon chiffon from della terra?

pretty good
im not a massive fan of black teas but this one was fairly good
it had a little bit of agave in it and that really helped bring out the lemony notes
in all a good tea

Last time I drank this was almost exactly a year ago – spooky.

Anyway. Whenever I go into DT and they ask me what I’d like for a cuppa, I get completely overwhelmed. I stare blankly at the wall as the clock ticks. I just don’t know what I want. So I usually end up ordering this, or the Three Lemon Green. (Why lemon? I don’t know. I like lemon.)

Invariably, I get a very tasty cup, if usually a little bitter from oversteeping. The black tea base isn’t given short-shrift by the lemon flavour, which itself is sweeter than it is tart or sour. All in all, this is a good tea – I just don’t feel the need to add it to the collection at home. Yet, anyway. Maybe if we get the stash under control a little first.
