Refreshing, that’s the definition of this tea. I received this tea as a sample from SpecialTEA Brew. Having tried and enjoyed the teas previously, I was looking forward to seeing what’s new.
The dry leaf smells like citrus. It’s a mixture of the tiny green rooibos with small dehydrated pieces of what I believe is lemon. It smells very nice, fresh and clean. I’ve never tried green rooibos before. 205/4 min. The taste is interesting. It’s not as citrusy as I would expect from the name, however, it’s good. The best part is that the lemon is not overwhelming. I can taste some of the mint in the tea, but the interesting part is the slight taste of cloves that I’m picking up. I think if I were naming this tea, based on what I’m finding, I’d have gone with a Slightly Spiced Citrus Green Rooibos. (Okay, so naming teas isn’t my talent.) I wonder if it’s the green rooibos that is giving it this flavor. Who knows? The end result is pleasant.
