Sweet and piquant, but in a cloying and slightly unpleasant way, with little green tea flavor. I guess that’s what I get for buying a tea with “artificial lime yogurt flavouring” as an ingredient.

I had a cup of this last night, and I’m pretty sure I overbrewed it (silly me, getting distracted by video games!). The lime was really prominent and biting, the creamy part almost non-existent. Still really good, and I’m sure that the not-so-stellar parts of this can be blamed on my ineptitude and my tin being nearly empty.
On the bright side, I finally got around to placing a DavidsTea order and I will soon have two more bags of this one! YAY! And I snuck in a Teavana order because I had a coupon! MORE TEA!
Teavana’s site is stupid, though, and is saying my tea will be sent to my old address where it’d be impossible to retrieve. Customer Service swears they got my update request and fixed it, so fingers crossed that I actually get my tea. Eek. If not, I’m definitely going to need to order more of this one…
Had this the other day and forgot to add a tasting note.
This was…. interesting? It’s definitely fruity! And SWEET. This tea almost made my teeth hurt from drinking. (I had it hot btw). This tea, I think, would be more excellent cold.
The boyfriend and I just bought a Zoku Slush maker, and my first thought drinking this tea was, Man, this would make an awesome slushie… So maybe I’ll try that, and see if I like it better!!.
I must say, it smells like a sweet lime, incredibly satisfying and inviting. However I was a little disappointed that my tea is not bursting with this flavor. It is rather bland and the lime is mainly in the after taste. But don’t get me wrong, this tea is really good and a bit creamy. I don’t even know how it’s possible for straight tea to be creamy, but this one is!
Smells like key lime pie – which is one of my favourite desserts so I thought I would love this…but I didn’t. It’s very weak, even when I tried steeping for 10+ minutes, and I think I just don’t like the idea of hot lime – I feel like it’s a flavour that’s meant to be cold in most circumstances…so maybe I should try it iced when summer comes?
I’d recommend steeping this for at least 3 minutes to really bring out the flavor. I love the smell of this tea! Its reminiscent of lemon meringue pie without the taste being too sweet, but still retaining some of the tanginess. This tea would complement desserts quite well, or you can drink it casually if you’re looking for something light with a sweet, tarty aroma. I love drinking this in the mornings!
I’m a big fan of green teas and new to loose leaf, but I loooved the smell of this one at the David’s counter so it was one of the first few that I tried.
To be honest, I wasn’t too impressed. I should have expected this – since I’m not a huge fan of “sweet” teas – but, despite the smooth, creamy texture and mild taste (which I usually like), this one wasn’t for me. Trying to find the “lime” notes in this was like trying to find Waldo. Overall, nothing outstanding about this. I still have a few grams left, so I plan to try it iced to see if I like it better.
