I loved this tea and was disappointing to see it discontinued. Luckily I went into Teavana after they had bagged the remaining stock up into give away with purchase gifts. The girl working the counter (who is by far the most awesome non pushy chill “teaologist” I have ever encountered at a Teavana) was kind enough to give me the the few remaining bags which I have been hoarding ever since. I adore lemongrass and this tea has always been good to me… until now. It is summer so I have been cold brewing teas. This is the first time I have had this tea cold brewed and it either changes the flavors to a sharper more lemon/citrusy bite OR my stash is past it’s peak. I have hot brewed it and then iced it and it was good that way, but it is really not doing it for me this way. I’m not sure if I was subliminally put off by the looks of the rehydrated for a few days after being dehyrated for a few years slice of citrus, but I swear it looked like a grey slice of preserved lung.
I’ll have to review this tea again next time I hot brew it because cold really isn’t doing it justice.
