When I think of key lime, I think of a pie made with fresh key lime juice, a graham cracker crust and a little whipped cream on top. I think the description of this tea even mentions key lime pie. When I took my first sip, all I could taste was lime juice. It was a fresh, tart lime juice flavor, but rather plain as that was the only flavor. Then I decided to add a little sugar – that made the sweetness of the lime and stevia come out and it tasted like limeade. Then I thought, what the heck, and added a little milk. Bam! Now it’s a cup of creamy limey flavor that tastes like a real dessert. I like that I can still taste the tangy lime juice but it’s not overwhelmingly tart or too boring. This is making me want a slice of real key lime pie! Thank you, VariaTEA, for this sample!
