This tea came to me via Della Terra’s Facebook giveaway. It just arrived today, and I couldn’t wait to try it!

Because I have a little bit left of their Lemon Chiffon, I decided to compare the dry smells. The Chiffon has more of a dessert smell – a wee bit more artificial and sugary sweet. The Parfait, though, smells more fresh and authentic. It’s almost like I just grated some lemon rind while getting ready to make the real thing.

What’s odd is that the dry smell is completely different from the taste of the brewed tisane. To my husband and I, this tastes like a rush of lemonade quickly followed by lemon meringue. The toasted, creamy flavor is actually adhering to my tongue just like a real meringue would. It’s a bit of a mind boggler for me, as this is the first tisane I’ve tried that truly tastes like what it advertises.

Of the ingredients, I don’t really taste the apple and cranberry, but the cranberry certainly comes out in the color: a pretty crystal pink that contrasts in an interesting way with the overwhelmingly lemon flavor.

All in all, I’m really enjoying this and I am very excited that this was a 2oz bag, so we can continue to enjoy this! For now, I’m going for another cup!

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
