I really enjoy this tea. I ordered 5 teas from silk road and I’ve liked them all. Oddly, even the lychee fruit that smells like tobacco and tastes a little like stewed tomatoes has grown on me and I find myself reaching for it more often than I thought.
This tea is light and refreshing, and tastes like lemon lime. I haven’t tried it iced and I’m not sure I will as it is too cold now, but I imagine this would be perfect iced. The green tea base is not the slightest bit vegetal which to me is awesome. It smells mainly of lemongrass with a hint of lime and I find myself opening this tin often just to smell it.
The thing I love most about Silk Road is that all of their teas are organic and they taste natural, unlike some organic teas that still taste artificial to me even though I know they’re not. I also like the fact that they are based in Victoria, BC, so close to home! I definitely recommend to anyone to try some of their tea. I will be making a second order soon to restock 3 of the 5 teas I ordered and to get samples of many more teas that I want to try.
