The first sip of this tea was very citrusy. But not too IN YOUR FACE citrusy. Very light, very refreshing. I imagine it would make a marvelous iced tea!
For some reason all of Teavana’s teas leave a weird aftertaste in my mouth..
Other then the aftertaste I really did like this tea. :]
I tried this iced tonight (in a blend with Blueberry Bliss), using the hot brew method. (I have some Jasmine Oolong cold-brewing in the fridge, but I got thirsty!) This was really good iced, with a bunch of rock sugar thrown in during steeping. It’s tasty as ever, fruity, light, and refreshing, and still not very rooibos-tasting. I still prefer cold-brewing my iced teas because a) I think the flavor is usually better and smoother, and b) I hate how the hot tea melts all the ice but somehow the whole thing never totally cools down, it just gets mostly cool. But for near-instant gratification, this was a lovely drink!
I didn’t think I’d like this one. I love lemon as a fruit but can’t stand it in tea – although to be fair I am talking about that nasty fake lemon flavoring added on to iced tea. The lemon in this, while overpowering, felt very cleansing in a way. I could see myself drinking this when sick as a remedy of sorts. It will likely not be an everyday tea by itself, but I think the flavor would lend well to blending, so I’ll try and experiment.
