Midnight study session….ughhhh. Since I’m cutting down on sugar I’m substituting my usual Mountain Dew for this.
The dry tea looks very pretty, although more like dried grass/wood bits than tea, which I’m assuming is typical of rooibos. I’m seeing lemongrass and lime skin here, as well as smelling all that citrusy flavor, along with a hint of sweet condensed milk type smell (I’m guessing that is the cream flavoring).
The wet leaves smell really strongly of lime, as does the brew. You can really taste the lime when you drink, but theres also a refreshing, sort of minty? taste and a subtle underlying tone of sweetness. It’s not as tart as I expected.The tea brings to my mind the sort of airy, insubstantial feel one gets when eating chiffon cake.
I’m really impressed with this! Can’t wait to try their other, more well known/liked lemon chiffon.
