I was given this tea as a gift, which was a little bit of a bummer because I really wanted to try the chocolate cake tea, but this is what was available. It’s still a gift though and I’m grateful for it.
The smell when I opened the bag is like citrus punch in the nose. Like I walked into a cloud of Lemon Pledge. Uhhh… That definitely put me off. I used only one ‘perfect spoon’ and the lower end of the recommended steeping time (4 min). I don’t know why I originally thought that this was a black tea, but maybe the name is something I would call like a lemon orange black tea. :D Something bright to drink in the sunshine, but that’s not what this is. It’s an herbal, no caffeine, which is probably good with how close to bedtime it is now.
The taste is mildly tart, but it smells of vanilla/cream. Kind of like how lemonade is tart but sweet. It’s an interesting combo to the senses. I’m not quite sure how I feel about this one yet.
