I enjoyed a cup of this with the beau after work today. Our package is half empty (It’s the beau’s favourite) but luckily we ordered another today. That, and 4 or 5 other things. Whoops! Tea buying ban thrown out the window. Oh well!

Anyway, I think I shall increase my rating of these tea. For one reason or another, I found this much more smooth and delicious than last time. I’ve been assured it will make a great second steep later as well. The lemon is the dominant flavour, but not the sharp tart lemon that one might expect from a tea with lemon verbena, balm, rind, myrtle, etc. It’s quite smooth and extremely palatable with a slight “earthy” taste from the guayusa. I am still at a loss to explain the guayusa taste.. :)

I’ve been drinking loose tea since 2010 and my tastes have changed a lot over those years. For the last few, I’ve been a fan of unflavoured Chinese blacks and shu puerh. I still drink other things, but that’s where I am.

I live in a rural area with my husband, cat, and soon to be firstborn. I love tea, reading, doctor who, knitting, crosswords, board games, the marvel universe, and lots of other things.

I’m not often rating teas numerically any more but I want to leave this to explain my past ratings:
I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
