Today I have hangover. I’m not proud but I am dehydrated. I’ve been drinking green rooibos tea all day to replenish my stupid self, but then I rememberd that I purchased Meyer Lemon Black Tea from The Republic of Tea few days ago. I love, love, love Meyer lemons so the idea of trying this new tea really lifted my spirits.
First, I’m pissed off at myself for not noticing that this isn’t a loose leaf tea, but rather four large tea bags meant only for iced tea brewing. That aside, I love iced tea and it’s warm outside so I still had hope that I may love this tea.
Alas, I don’t love this tea. I was hoping for a clean, slightly sweet lemon flavor with a nice black tea finish. Nope. This tea has a slight lemon flavor with a perfumy (not floral) aftertaste. I don’t mind, and I actually expected, a slight floral essence like orange blossom for instance. However, this tea has an artifical perfume taste that I just don’t care for.
All of this being said, I don’t hate this tea either. I’m willing to drink the rest of the pitcher with the hope that it may grow on me. I prefer to love a tea from the first taste, but I’m just a romantic that way :)
I need a nap! Weekday drinking THE END.
