I do love this tea, although it’s very similar to several others I have already (Lemon Meringue by Tealish and Green Rooibos Citron by Adagio). This will be a sipdown shortly, and while I do like a few of Della Terra’s blends (this being my favorite), there’s nothing that called to me so strongly that I feel the need to reorder anytime soon.

Do you find all three of those blends basically comparable, or is there a standout among them?

I find them all excellent, in different ways. Citron is more orange/lemon, Lemon Meringue is the creamiest, whereas Lemon Chiffon is the more lemony. I am leaning towards green rooibos over red of late though (which Citron and Meringue are), although I’d never know it was red with Lemon Chiffon.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
