(52teas (Anne) 2022: 208)
Similar to Banana Marshmallow Treat, I found a half-packet of this as well, and have a full packet that was already recorded on my spreadsheet. This has to be from 2016, as I don’t believe this tea has ever been reblended.
Nice to have come across another lime tea so soon after yesterday’s Lemon-Lime Meringue Kukicha! This one has the bonus of a reasonably tasty oolong base, and is a little less citrussy, with a bit of a herbaceous component (unsure what, exactly). I don’t really taste cookie, and I do believe that this tea used to have more flavour, but it’s still pretty good.
Sidenote: has anyone else noticed that teas with lime flavouring tend to get a rotten flavour if they sit in the cup too long? I’m notorious for letting tea cool down and sit for probably up to a day; it was either this tea or the kukicha that I just let sit overnight and sipped in the morning – yuck! Tossed it. Not an isolated incident, either, and also not isolated to 52teas – same thing with Butiki’s Lime Marshmallow.
