This tea smelled a little strange dry, but was delicious once steeped! I made a cup and iced it and it was delicious. I went light on the leaves to make sure the flavors wouldn’t be overpowering, and it was perfect. Loved this delicate but powerful new addition to my collection, but probably wouldn’t restock (there’s just so many teas that I want to try).

Sample sipdown!

Today’s “take the baby for a stroll” tea came courtesy of Sil, a bajillion years ago.

I brewed this up in my contigo travel mug, so I was drinking it without being able to smell…. I know that would affect my taste to some degree.

Now whether it’s due to age or just that I’ve been spoiled by the super powers of Della Terra’s creamy and flavourful lemon and like teas (amazing, since I don’t usually like rooibos), I don’t know.

I know I didn’t under leaf but maybe I didn’t let it steep long enough? I was afraid to oversteep and turn it bitter.

All in all, it was a perfectly pleasant tea to sip outside on this gorgeous sunny spring day.
Would I buy it? No. It probably would be tasty cold steeped though!

Thanks for the sample back in the day, Sil :)

OK I fully admit I’ve been bad at keeping up on my tealogging… I’ve tied 4 or 5 new teas and haven’t written a word, but I just haven’t been able to get in the mood to write so shrugs oh well.

But I’m back for the moment so onto the tea! At first I wasn’t going to get this one but every time I read the description I thought “well maybe…” In the end I decided to try it, if only to see if maybe it might be something my partner likes. The dry scent was a bit… overwhelming; very limey (is that even a word?) and somewhat artificial. I couldn’t really catch much else aside from the occasional apple note (which by the way I was really surprised at the amount of dried apple in this.)

The brewed tea was a murky yellow-green and maintained the lime scents from earlier but now there was a definite “tartness” to the scent, which worried me as I’m not a big fan of tart teas (or really tart anything.) Still didn’t pick up much to really suggest “gelato” but it’s definitely lime. Taste wise? Yep it’s a bit tart, almost sharp in its tartness, but I get some good lime notes and a bit from the lemon grass too. There is a bit of a “creamy” taste to it but I find it more in the finish of the sip rather than the front end and I’m really not getting much if anything from the green tea.

In the end? Not for me… I even tried adding a bit of sugar to smooth out the tart notes and, while that did work, it just ended up highlighting the artificialness of the flavors. So we’ll see if my partner likes it and if not then it’s to the swap pile for this one!

Tried out making my own milk bubble tea with this. To keep it a bit healthier I used liquid stevia to sweeten and almond milk. Really tasty and refreshing. I’m not sure if I’ve had gelato but this definitely has a lime cookie taste to it, you know those powdery ones?

I don’t think I’d like this hot so I’ll save it for iced and bubble tea.

Pretty tasty, but the lime flavour tastes a bit fake to me. I want to try it iced, since I feel like that will be delicious.

This is a sipdown from the Easter Tea Trail and…yeah. I still don’t like lime gelato. Granted, I don’t like lime. It was okay, but nothing I’d search out again.

Amariel

I like this one, but primarily as a summer tea.

Sipdown!

I coldbrewed the last of this leaf overnight and took the teabag out mid-afternoon today. It was a lovely pale yellow-green. I sipped it then and was pleasantly surprised to find no bitterness at all.

This is much better cold-brewed than served hot. I’m really tasting the lemongrass and pineapple. However, I’m not tasting very much lime or much creaminess – and that’s what I signed up for.

Anyways, this is pleasant, but I’m probably not going to restock.

This tea to me is meh. I tried this iced in store and I was so glad I didn’t buy any for home. It’s an OK tea, just nothing amazing. The smell is fantastic and I wish all that flavour had transferred over into the tea itself. I wanted a really lime-y tea and this sadly didn’t satisfy.

Unusual! I love it! Had this iced and it was great, not very sweet but oddly great. I love lime and this tea is no exception.

JustJames

this one totally caught me offguard. been an age since i’ve had it, but last time i did it was great.

Gabberjam

It caught me offguard as well. I expected something far different than what it actually tasted like.
