Another from Sips By. I believe this is my first Kenyan black tea. From what I can smell over the lemon myrtle, it reminds me of a fresh Ceylon. Very nice.
I’m broke right now and have had to resort to using sugar in my tea instead of stevia. I hate it. It ruins the mouthfeel and leaves a gross, tangy aftertaste. But that doesn’t stop me from enjoying this.
The lemon myrtle is very powerful. It almost completely mutes the black tea base. I like a tea with a lot of herbs, though, so I don’t mind too much. The lemon flavor I’m getting is definitely not actual citrus. It’s more like lemongrass. Sweet, clean, and uplifting. Soothing in a way. Kind of reminds me of Lemonheads candy. Or the lemon balm my grandmother bought by accident when she meant to get catnip.
So, if you’re looking for a southern sweet tea with lemon experience, this ain’t it. But if you like lemongrass, you’ve found a winner.
