drank Lemon Cardamom Chun Mee by 52teas
4847 tasting notes

I’m really LOVING this. Everything comes together in a very lovely way. The Chun Mee has a bit more astringency than the Chinese Sencha that Frank usually uses for his green tea blends, and I think that it works to this particular blend’s benefit. The lemon is tangy-sweet, with just the right amount of tart. I’m not puckering, it reminds me very much of the kind of tartness I might experience after biting into a lemon bar. You know, those sweet, shortcake-crusted, lemon-custard filled confections that have been sprinkled with powdered sugar? It’s sweet yet tart like that.

The cardamom is nice here too, it has a natural sort of citrus-y tone to it, and offers just a gentle warmth to the cup. It doesn’t taste spicy, but the combination of the astringency and the crisp, lemon zesty taste and the spice of the cardamom seems to impart a sort of peppery tickle on the tongue in the aftertaste. Not strong, but very enjoyable.

This is awesome, I can’t wait to try it iced!


I would love a decaf version of this too…

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
