From Harney & Sons

The predominant aroma of this delightful infusion is lemongrass. The addition of lemon rind and lemon flavor make this a light and soothing bedtime tea!

Sipdown no. 28 for the year 2014. I’m counting it as a sipdown because I’m throwing away the sample packet, but I do have a tin of this as well. I think it counts if it means something gets to be thrown away? If I’m cheating, let me know and I won’t count it.

After my epiphany of the other day that it’s okay for me to like I Love Lemon, I feel less urgency about finding a perfect lemon tisane, which is quite liberating. I can just sit back and enjoy this one.

Pretty much everything I said in my first note about this remains accurate on this tasting, particularly with respect to the gentle quality of the lemon. I thought perhaps the bitter note was new, but I see I identified it before. It’s really only at the very first of the sip. By the time it hits the middle, it’s gone, and in the finish, there’s a sweetness to the lemon that does remind me of the aftertaste of a lightly flavored lemon cookie.

I feel very virtuous sipping my lemon while the rest of the family gorges on chicken wings. ;-)

Time to sleep for me, I think. G’night all and sweet dreams.

TheTeaFairy

Ahhh, i’ve done a few tea coming outs myself, it does feel so liberating, doesn’t it, lol!

__Morgana__

Yes, it does! Lol.

was it using the fruit? or the fruit tree leaves?

It has lemongrass, lemon rind and lemon flavor according to the manufacturer’s description of the tea on the tasting page.

OK then, time for something without caffeine.

After my “I Love Lemon” experience (not), I was a bit daunted by this to say the least…

the particles are very finely ground up here, I should have used a finer strainer since all of the particles settled to the bottom of my infuser mug, it’s a porcelain mug with matching strainer but the holes are sizable.

This is much more mellow than the Bigelow tea, thankfully. It’s lemongrass, lemon rind and lemon flavoring. The color is kind of a dull beige but the flavor is zippy. It isn’t too tart and I could drink it without sweetener. The flavor is nice but I’m not sure how I feel about this tisane. I almost feel that it needs to be blended with something, like a green tea perhaps, to give it a slight amount of body. This also would be a good one to mix with tulsi, so I think I’ll try it that way soon. I found it fairly refreshing, but I’m not blown away. Might be nice iced.

Amy, If leaf particles in your tea are a problem, I’ve used finer mesh filters that really work. I’m notsure if your Finum glass came with one, or if it is large enough. I like these:

…….the brewing basket, or the golden or universal set. There are others as well.

TeaBrat

I do have a few mesh filters. I just didn’t use one this time…

My PM’s are aweful wordy, aren’t they?

TeaBrat

yes, as well as informative! :)

This smells mainly of lemongrass, but once steeped more of a lemon and lemon zest flavour come through. A little zingy (for a unflavored herbal), overall quite a nice cup to wind down with at night.

Lemon Herbal is a blend of lemongrass and lemon rind. This one is more bitter than sour, but unmistakably citrus. It tastes the way you would imagine lemon rind to taste. I’m huge on bitter teas, but I find this one such a stark contrast to the lemon herbal I’m used to (Lipton… not high quality, but I dig the red color and the body) that it was hard for me to enjoy. There isnt much body to this one, and that’s probably what kills it for me. If you prefer light bodied teas and citrus teas over fruity ones, you’ll probably enjoy this one!

Flavors: Bitter, Citrus, Lemon, Lemongrass

this tea bag + honey = nice evening relaxing tea. This is another teabag i took from the hotel lol and i’m glad that i did. It’s nice to be able to try a few more harney teas without committing to a whole tin! this is lemoney and refreshing and mostly just warm and comforting tonight. Clearly i’m crashing a little after 36+ hours on 2 hrs of sleep heh

I’ve been drinking this tea the last few nights. It’s good, but a little underwhelming. I’ve experimented with different steep times and think that it is impossible to oversteep. In fact, I’ve started to leave my tea strainer in for the whole time I drink the tea. Even so, the cup is still a bit watery. One last point, it’s key to use a really fine strainer. The tea is nearly a powder. Even with my finest strainer, the dregs are pretty thick.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more
