Oh man, this is a fantastic summer tea. It’s from StarFevre — thanks so much! Even though it’s probably old and stored in the thinest of baggies (but the tea shop put it in that baggie), the flavor is still really good. I think it’s meant to be iced because the base is a CTC black tea… even some really tiny CTC tea that I could swear sometimes looks and tastes like rooibos. But the black tea also has a robustness to it. The added flavors are fantastic: definite lime but also with a hint of creaminess to it, like it could be a key lime pie, or lime jello with whip cream on top. It’s a great tea… one I might even search for fresh to buy again, as I’m one serving away from a sipdown. I keep going back to this tea!
