Another sample from denisend, and again, I made it up into iced tea.

Wow, this is very, puckering-ly, lemon. Who needs taste-buds lemon. Their description notes that it is a sweet and sour brew – I mostly got sour. Even when I sweetened it, it was still very “sour-lemon”.

I think I want to try this blended with something else (I know that’s what denisend does) because I can see how it would blend well. But I don’t know I’ll be drinking it straight again.

Ouch. My tongue’s getting wrinkly after reading your description. Tea that causes pain just shouldn’t be.

That was my experience of it too, I used honeybush to sweeten it up.

You should keep some on hand to serve your enemies if they ever drop by :D

LOL! Yeah, I don’t think I’ve ever done it straight! It’s very good with any breakfast blend for a sweet tea, and it’s also good with Teavana’s Raspberry Riot Mate. :-)

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
