Yessssss!!!!! I love this tea! This is one I was very close to getting, but ended up not getting at the very last minute, so I am super glad that this was one of the teas that Deleriums Frog sent me in our tea swap recently!
I do like lime flavoured items, though not straight lime so much, unless it is lime juice squeezed on a fish taco or something where it enhances the dish. Sweet and creamy desserty lime…sign me up! I like Lime Gelato David’s Tea and Lime Chiffon from Della Terra, so I felt I would like this too.
Right away after the initial steep, I put the filter basket with steeped leaves right into my mason jar mug and initiated a cold steep for later. I knew I wanted to try to get a second steep from the leaves, so I thought cold steep might work. I ’m having the hot steep now, though.
The dominant taste, as others have already noted, is lime. It’s not a super tart or sour lime, but it’s also not a weak lime either. The marshmallow adds a nice sweet and creamy note that is, as some have said already, a bit like candy. I’d also say it is not that far off from those lemon/lime cookies with the powder sugar that melts in your mouth. I can’t taste the base that much, but I can sense it, but I’m actually fine with this, as I like the base stepping aside to let the stronger flavours take the spotlight.
This tea is a win, and I wish I had more. There is enough for another serving, and hopefully 2-3 steeps with that. Once again, I am so happy to try this from the swap with DF.
