From English Tea Store

The Lime Gelato Herbal Tea blend from English Tea Store is a juicy blend of herbs and dried fruits.

Innovated at Paris’ oldest continually operated café, Café Procope, gelato was the creation of Sicilian chef, Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli. His customers, which covered the spectrum of high society (including an American: Benjamin Franklin, a Frenchman: Napoleon Bonaparte, and a philosopher: Voltaire) were among the first in the world to sample gelato. The sweet icy treat was produced using an ice machine Coltelli’s grandfather had developed in Italy, that he would go on to perfect in Paris.

Today, gelato is more closely associated with Italy than France. Amazingly, unlike every other country on Earth, Italy produces more artisanal gelato than factory made (upwards of 55% is made onsite within the gelateria where it will be sold.) In Italy, by law, gelato must contain at least 3.5% butterfat. (By comparison, ice cream in the USA must contain 10% butterfat. Herein lies the primary difference in flavor.) The low fat content in gelato is offset by a higher sugar content, combined with natural fruit purees, which give the confection a bright, fruit forward flavor that is often more powerful than ice creams.

Ingredients: Apple + Rosehip + Hibiscus + Peach pieces, Camomile petals

I forgot to take some notes for this one, but I made a cup in honor of our Valentine’s Day sipdown prompt. Lime gelato is not a typical Valentine’s dessert, but if my husband were to choose he would absolutely pick something with lime (most likely key lime pie). This steeped up a serious red color (thanks, hibiscus), but the lime flavor definitely stood out. I’m not a fan, but my husband would probably call this one a favorite.

Thanks again for the swap, AJRimmer!  I’ve wanted to try this, but again with the mysterious ingredients, ETS.  So it’s hard to parcel out the ingredients here without knowing what they are.  Looking at the ingredients after steeping, it looks like actual lime?  Or some sort of citrus.  As well as rosehips which don’t really do much for the color of the mug/ flavor… I can’t really tell what else is in there. I guess the flavor is slightly lime, but it’s a very earthy lime, and by earthy I mean bordering on dirt flavor.  I’ve never had gelato but I doubt it tastes like this.
Steep #1  // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 10 minutes after boiling  // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2  // just boiled //  6-7 min

They hide the ingredients on a downloadable pdf instead of putting them straight on the website for whatever reason? (Probably to try to make it harder to snuff out their wholesaler…?) In any event, they are: Apple + Rosehip + Hibiscus + Peach pieces, Camomile petals

hmm, that is weird they wouldn’t be upfront about it. But thank you for the info! None of those ingredients scream ‘lime gelato’ to me, which might be another reason they hide it.

I should probably stop buying lime teas because I almost never like the lime flavoring they use. It’s just so strong, fake, and weird. This one wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t pleasant either. But if you usually like lime flavored things, maybe you’ll enjoy this one. I just wish the flavor were more authentic.
