From Shanti Tea

WHITE LEMON

Fair Trade Certified & Organic White Tea

Tin / Bio-bag: 45g / 57 cups • Sample: 5 to 7 cups

A full leaf white tea, this is a super smooth brew with a full mouth feel. The lemon essence is distinct but not to the point of overwhelming the mild flavor of the base white tea. A perfect balance of flavours with plenty of anti-oxidants.

Story

The exact origin of the lemon has remained a mystery, though it is widely presumed that lemons first grew in India, northern Burma, and China. In South and South East Asia, it was known for its antiseptic properties and it was used as an antidote for various poisons. Today, India is the largest producer of lemons and generates 16% of all lemon and lime output worldwide.

I’m revisiting this tea because TeaEqualsBliss sent me a bit more of it in the last box that she sent me. (Thanks sister!) Here is my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2011/02/25/white-lemon-from-shanti-tea-2/

It tastes as good as I remember, although, I did slightly oversteep it and the bitterness of the lemon sort of peeks out with the longer steep time.

I think that either Shanti Tea has discontinued this tea, though, or at the very least, they’re currently sold out of it, because I can’t find it on their website. It’s a shame, because even with the slight bitter edge to it, it is still quite pleasant.

Why does this have a song/tea association for me, you ask? Well, when I first read the package I thought it said WHITE LION not WHITE LEMON…lol

Anyhow…
Dry this smells a little like Lemon Pledge and White Tea. Very Clean.

Post infusion…gentle lemon and white tea.

Tastes wonderful! Of course, I like lemon, so that helps! The White Tea is PERFECT and the Lemon just makes it even more tempting!

1 cup hot and another cold! LOVED both! Sending the rest to LiberTEAs
