Another sample to clear from my cupboard. I forgot that my husband has poker tonight with his work friends so that leaves me home alone for the night. Decided to treat myself to a take away of a vegetarian fish burger, they have come a long way with the vegetarian and vegan fish alternatives in recent years. I remember 10 years ago trying a vegetarian fish cake was like licking a fishy ash try (seriously). Now they have it down to a fine art and while I prefer to stay away from things that look like meat I must admit I do miss fish and seafood. It’s been roughly 14 years now though since I stopped eating meat and 11 years since I stopped eating fish and seafood. I will allow myself this one naughty but not really treat.
Anyway tea…I do ramble on sometimes ..could be because I’ve been on my own all day minus the 45 minutes my husband came home to change and grab a coffee before leaving.
I love lemon and this promises to be a lemon-stravaganza of a blend. It’s still steeping but it smells so very lemony and medicinal, like lemsip flu drink.
Fully steeped and it still smells like lemsip but also with added lemon rind as it’s sort of waxy.
Flavour is well..lemony. Not as strong as expected but I can note in particular the lemon rind and lemon verbena in particular, they give it a sweet, waxy yet light and buttery sort of effect. After further sipping I can also pick out the lemongrass. The honeybush is very well hidden behind so many different layers of lemon, had I not known I would not have guessed.
It’s nice but I just can’t shake off the medicinal factor and it’s off putting. Perhaps this would be better suited as an iced tea? I will not get to find out as I only had one sample.
