This is a very unique and delicious tisane! It’s tart, yet has some sweetness to it too. I usually don’t add anything to my tea, but this tastes really nice with honey. Just don’t over brew it. In my experience, anything longer than 5 minutes and it tastes horribly bitter.

For once the name of a product tells you everything you need to know. This is incredibly sour, incredibly strong lime. It has a dry, slightly bitter aftertaste. I find it impossible to drink on its own! I don’t mind some sourness – I’ll squeeze in some lemon or lime to unsweetened tea, and I can drink most hibiscus teas without sugar – but this super lime is on another level.

I could imagine this would be a very convenient tea for fans of lemon or lime flavors, as there is no need to cut open a fresh fruit. With some added honey, sugar, or other sweetener, this would be quite therapeutic hot, and very refreshing iced. However, I can’t help but give this a pretty mediocre rating, because it fails as a stand-alone beverage.

Lime. Just lime. Incredibly refreshing if you have a cold and might even aid recovery the morning after a hard night. But know this: LIME. In all its overpowering and possessive glory. Caveat drinker.

Quite a number of years ago, this was my favorite when I could find it. I agree with the earlier Steepers (What do we call each other?), the tartness is a bright note and it sparkles when the tea is fresh. I assumed that I received a bad batch because the tea oil tasted off and the lime flavor I had enjoyed had dulled appreciably.
You all have inspired me; I’ll have to try it again.

This used to be a favorite of mine too, but I also haven’t had it in years. I haven’t forgotten about it though – it’s on my “shopping list.” It does seem hard to find though, and now I’m a bit worried that it won’t taste as good as I remember…

This makes FANTASTIC iced tea. Wouldn’t recommend it hot, but on a humid summer day, a fruity cold pitcher of this is bliss. It really does taste exactly like the name. One of my favorite seasonals!

Wow, shockingly sour! I was expecting a little bit of bright citrus in the background, but this was like drinking lime juice. Every sip made my mouth flood with saliva. There is also a musty, mushroom-ness (dry desert) about it. Not terrible, but not what I want either.

I made a cup of this with a bit of sweetener and WOW does it hit you like a punch in the face! It has a strong, clear, citrusy taste of lime. I quite like it, but I used to enjoy warheads and I quite like the tartness of hibiscus too, so buyer beware, I guess. Lime, like grapefruit, is a flavor I have to be in the right mood for, but this definitely captures it!

I really like citrus spiced teas and lime flavour, so I thought I would like this. I took one sip and gave it to the person I was with. I do taste lime rind, but mostly I describe the flavour is extremely bitter, acrid, and disgustingly unpleasant. One of the worst teas I have ever had, but I can see how others might enjoy it.

Holy cow, this is so lemony/limey. It’s like I’m drinking slightly-watered-down lime juice. I added some sugar and now it tastes like hot limeade.

I had a cup of it brewing and sat it in the bedroom, my husband walked in and asked me if our cat peed on the bed., not only does it smell like cat urine but it tastes like it too. This is the most vile tasting thing I’ve ever consumed.

I steeped one bag in a one cup mug with boiling water for about 5 mins.
