From DAVIDsTEA

The quintessential summer drink. This sweet & tart citrus black tea shines bright with the taste of freshly squeezed lemon, orange peel and a tangy pomelo twist. Fresh, quenching and low in sugar, it’s a refreshing alternative to store-bought lemonade. Sip it chilled for an energizing lemon iced tea that’ll keep you cool all summer long.

Black tea, Pomelo peel (pomelo peel, sugar, citric acid), Candied pineapple (pineapple, sugar), Apple (apple, citric acid), Sweet blackberry leaves, Hibiscus blossoms, Natural lemon flavouring, Lemon peel, Orange peel, Lemon granules (maltodextrin, lemon juice, natural lemon oil, sodium alginate).

How it tastes
Bold black tea, sweet lemon with a juicy pomelo twist.

Looking for a refreshing pick-me-up? This blend makes the perfect caffeinated iced tea.

We added a squeeze of pomelo for an extra citrusy kick.

Great substitute for store bought lemonade since it’s lower in sugar and calories, and contains no artificial flavours..

I have heard that this tea is a hit or miss, you either Love it or you Hate it, I don’t like it but I’m not going to give up on it, I plan to try it with sweetener next and then make it iced, if that doesn’t work then I’ll be pretty sad because I LOVE lemon flavored things.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #223 overall / Tea #3 for June
Thursday 6/3 — DT Country Lemonade 2 oz packet. This is my favorite lemonade tea / my favorite “black tea with lemon” tea. I love the unique of the pomelo. A million more pitchers of this one coming for sure, I have been buying a lot of this being so cheap on the DT website. (: I should probably try this hot and mix it with stuff etc… if anyone wants any let me know, I am happy to share!!

Have you tried teakruthi’s Lemon Kandy? I don’t usually like lemon and black tea together, but I really enjoyed that one.

Another new tea from DT that launched today; as I mentioned in my tasting note for DT’s new Bubble Gum Matcha (which contains a master list of all the new teas that came out today and their availability/seasonality) this is part of the Spring/Summer flip and will be around for an extended time period – but ultimately, as of right now, it’s still not a permanent tea…

I kind of like to this of this blend as the spiritual successor to La La Lemon. Of course, La La Lemon is still available in the US right now – but this is sort of that idea of a lemon black tea but kicked up a notch in terms of vibrant flavour, fun visual, and creativity. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not a huge fan of La La Lemon and for me personally I think this is an improvement! It’s zesty and tart, but still has approachable sweetness and it REALLY thirst quenching as an iced tea. I like the lingering flavour of the lemon after I take a sip, as well. Plus, it’s the first tea from DT with pomelo! How fun is that!? I love when DT introduces new ingredients/flavours, and I really appreciate the twist on citrus/lemonade. I’m still a bit hesitant about there actually being a need for so many “Lemonade teas” in general, but at least there’s a differentiating element for this blend compared to all the other lemon black teas out there.

I can appreciate that there are people who really like the simplicity of La La Lemon and how it’s such a clean and pure take on a lemon black tea, so I see where people might find disappointment in this blend if that’s the flavour profile that they’re seeking out (personally, I think Tea Kruthki’s Lemon Kandy blend is my ideal tea for that type of flavour profile). However, I’ve found La La Lemon temperamental when it comes to brewing and very pithy, drying and astringent. I don’t experience that with this tea. Although, if you’re like me and you tend to nibble on all the bits of things in your tea blend I have to advise AGAINST doing so with the cute little pomelo cubes – even though they look like adorable little pomelo candies they are very bitter if you try to eat one.

I have so many teas, and certainly do not have a shortage of citrus options – but I still nabbed a small about of this blend for myself. If for no other reason than to see what it’s like cold brewed.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

I agree on Teakruthi’s Lemon Kandy. I just received some the other day after their sample was so good.
