Taste wise, this blend reminds me of Genuine Tea’s Elderberry Hibiscus, except Lemon Berry Scone is a black tea and features a handful of ingredients that help cut what would otherwise be a sharp, tangy tartness. I don’t really get much scone vibes from this tea, but it’s nice enough…

I didn’t get scones either, but thought the elderberry flavor was nice. :)

I’m curious is the lemon prominent in this one? I love a bright, fresh, sharp lemon! :)

Antonia

@silentkettle Sadly, no. The berry portion is definitely much stronger than the lemon/citrus.

Silent Kettle

Thank you, Antonia! :) Oh no! I wonder why Deb goes lighter on the lemon in her teas? :O I suspect it would help balance out the berry notes to have that bright pop of citrus. I might request this one as a sample in my next order since I also love a good berry tea! :)

Antonia

Yeah… I don’t know what that’s about, but the orange teas are always much more fragrant and distinctive compared to those with lemon. Maybe a boost is needed via lemongrass or another citrus forward ingredient.

Silent Kettle

Antonio! :D Yes, her orange teas are super fragrant! I especially like her blood orange cider. :)

And mhmm! I think maybe having more lemon grass or lemon peel would do it! I actually ordered this one before she goes on vacation after reading your review; looking forward to trying it! <3
