From The NecessiTeas

The Italian dessert drink has made its way into a tea. Imagine lemon meringue teasing your taste buds, while sweetly melting in your mouth with a blend of vanilla and brown sugars. The lemony brightness shines through with lemongrass and a sprinkling of golden marigold petals, all topping a green rooibos tea.

Your tea is hand packaged in an airtight tin at no additional charge.

I received this in one of my multiple orders from Necessiteas over the last few months. I’m really loving the blends I’ve tried! I probably would’t have chosen this for myself, so it was a nice surprise. I’ve also been having A LOT of really heavy teas lately, this morning in particular, and wanted something a bit more vibrant and bright. This definitely hit the spot! Zesty and packed full of bright citrus flavor. Really lemony, a bit of vanilla.

I got this sample when I ordered the Carrot Cake back when I needed to restock my non-caffeinated supply.

Since I’m trying to find things I can sip down, I thought I’d open this up and see what it has going on. It’s not something I can sip down in one sitting but it’s a small packet. So 2 or 3 maybe.

It has a very creamy vanilla scent in the packet. Really nice. Reminds me of the SpecialTeas Rooibos Lemon Chiffon smell.

I followed the directions, sort of: 1.5 tsp in 12 oz water at boiling. But I was busy placing my Lupicia order (the last one!!!!) and forgot to take the filter out of the cup.

It makes a sort of vibrant orange, slightly cloudy liquor and smells like lemon cookies.

The flavor is a bit disappointing. I had hoped I’d get a sweet lemon cookie flavor, what with the brown sugar in the ingredients and all. But it really isn’t sweet.

Oddly, it isn’t really overly sour or bitter either. Though it is a little of both. It’s like there’s a bit too much lemon peel in the blend? Or something.

It might be better if I didn’t oversteep it. I’ll be sure to stick to no more than 7 minutes next time.

Wow – this tastes exactly like Lemon Chiffon from Della Terra.

I have to wonder if NecessiTeas may actually be sourcing this tea (or a pre flavoured rooibos base, at the very least) from the same supplier that Della Terra sourced theirs from; East Indies Tea Company. The flavour is just so dead on that it feels like a very real possibility to me. Plus I know from when we did the East Indies group order, years back, here on Steepster that both Lemon and Lime Chiffon were catalog blends carried by East Indies, meaning that any tea company could go and purchase them for their stores…

Thing is, I don’t think this has the exact same visual as lemon chiffon – which is why I think that NecessiTeas might but doing additional blending with a purchased “base” tea. That’s not a super uncommon practice; unique visuals sell tea better (especially when you’re selling online using a picture over in person where you can smell the teas) so sometimes tea companies will buy a catalog blend but add something to it to beef up the visuals and make it a little less obvious it’s a catalog blend.

9/10 times more large, chunky ingredients don’t actually contribute a significant enough flavour to drastically change the overall profile of a tea – so it’s an easy enough “trick” to do…

But this tastes amazing – don’t let my analysis let you think that I’m not enjoying every bit of this tea.

Oooh! Good to know, I loved Lemon Chiffon.

Kittenna

Interesting. I’ve tried a handful of lemon rooibos’ before, but never had one taste as good as Lemon Chiffon.

Mastress Alita

East Indies Lemon Souffle is Blue Cornflowers, Calendula Petals, Flavouring, Green Rooibos, Honeybush, Lemon Peel, and Red Rooibos, so it does look a bit different. I think the lack of honeybush would throw me as it not being the same base blend (would be easy enough for them to add the lemongrass, but hard to remove honeybush and blue cornflower petals out). Maybe the rooibos/green rooibos base with the citrus is creating enough of a “flavor match”.

I made this iced tea this morning and am only drinking it now. It has been sitting in front of me while I’ve been studying but I just haven’t thought to drink. Thankfully it is still cold and rather nice. It is creamy and lemon. A touch lemon-grassy but very dessert-like.

this one was a little better today made it while playing games and making cookies. We did a slow cooker pot roast as well given the weather so it’s been a warm, comfy, cozy weekend. Also, the toys we bought doggo as a birthday present were a bit hit – helped keep her from going crazy being stuck inside a little more than we like. One’s a giraffe with tennis balls for feet and the other is a spiky turtle that squeaks. She’s in love with both of them…hasn’t stopped playing with them all weekend haha.

this tea is still too light in terms of flavour for me to be limoncello….but it’s a half decent lemongrass tea. haha thanks for the share VariaTEA!

Final Count: 29

CrowKettle

29. Twenty-Nine. What.

CrowKettle

I want your cupboard size and quality.

Evol Ving Ness

You know, for normal people, twenty-nine teas are still really a lot of teas for one person to have.

Lexie Aleah

What type of cookies did you make? I also buy my dogs B-Day gifts and usually make them a dog birthday cake. I bet the squeaky toy got annoying real fast though.

CrowKettle

Evol Ving Ness, let’s not go there XD

Sil

pl 29 teas is awful…especially since i have the wrong break down: 5 samples; 13 puerh; 11 teas (only 3 of which are straight blacks and no herbals)

Sil

cookies are basically chocolate chip, but there are oats and rice krispies in them… Ruby is good with her squeaky toys – they’re her favourite but we probably squeak them more than her to watch the reaction haha

Evol Ving Ness

And thus, we will continue to enable each other and keep each other’s dirty secrets. :)

But seriously, Sil. Very impressive.
