I’m trying to keep up with reading tasting notes but it is an advent avalanche! Thanks very much for this one AJRimmer! I have no idea what lemugar pancakes are but I’m tasting lemon lemon lemon. All sorts of lemon: creamy lemon, tart lemon, lemon cleaner. Very sweet. It gets to be a bit much lemon really. I don’t see how pancake flavor can squeeze through all this lemon if it tried. The second steep was much more like lemon rind. All of the sweetness seemed to go in the first steep. They are using something called coconut nectar sugar which I’m not sure I have seen in a tea I’ve had before. Not sure if I like coconut nectar sugar yet? But the blend overall is too cloying to me.
