Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge Sunday, May 2nd: National Lemonade Day Tea #3
I drank the first cup on Lemonade day and the second steep the next day, so getting around to posting this now. Ever have a wacky complicated tea blend turn out EXACTLY like how you wanted it to be?! That is this blend for me. I blind bought 50grams…it’s the perfect amount of lavender flavor, lemon flavor, sweetness from the one white chocolate chip in the teabag, and even the perfect amount of tartness from the hibiscus. Lovely. So so good. It reminds me a bit of Bird & Blend’s Moondrop Dreams or like a very elaborate French dessert cookie. It has the tartness of a lemon rind type of flavor, but also sweet lemon, but then also sweetness from the white chocolate chip and a bit of floral from the lavender. It’s balanced quite amazingly. Very glad I bought it, would buy it again and Tealyra better not discontinue it!
