Here’s my afternoon tea, generally I’m not a big RoT fan but I do like this lemony green rooibos for some reason. It’s a tasty blend that goes well with the soymilk I like and actually tastes kind of dessert-y.

I haven’t done a whole lot today, I got a foam roller to do some stretching, went for a walk and had a massage. I started an interesting book called “Women of the Silk” by Gail Tsukiyama. All in all, it’s been a nice day for healing and rest. It’s good to have some non-caffeinated options that I like.

Flavors: Lemon Zest

Have you tired Della Terra’s Lemon Chiffon? I’m wondering how it compares.

TeaBrat

yes I was not a fan of the Della Terra version especially as it contains dairy products which is not something I want to see in a tea.

You know, I’d say that I’m a fan of The Republic of Tea. I probably wouldn’t choose one of their teas over some of my favorites, but there are a few teas from The Republic of Tea that I like to keep in rotation. These teas also have nice memories attached to them… so I figure I’ll keep a few tins around. The scent of this tea is of lemon and herbs — a bit like lemon myrtle, but with a touch of sweetness.

Sipping… I taste a grassy sort of lemon. It’s not a tart kind of lemon, but more of a flat and generic lemon flavor with green rooibos in the background. The vanilla and coconut combine with the lemon at the end of the sip. Even though I cannot distinguish each individual flavor, they strangely come together to create something like a plain lemon loaf. It does lack a creamy element and reminds me a little bit of a chlorinated swimming pool. It’s not a bad cup of tea, but there are better lemony dessert teas out there.

TeaBrat

interesting, I haven’t seen this one hit the stores yet

Kaylee

I dunno, anything that reminds you in the least bit of a chlorinated swimming pool doesn’t sound like it can be all that good…

QueenOfTarts

Amy oh- I found this one online! :)
Kaylee- it isn’t as bad as it sounds.. For some reason, I just get that association with this tea.. I still wouldn’t want to drink pool water, though!

I luckily found a tin on clearance at Indigo the other week and snatched it up. Already ripped through nearly a third of the tin. Has a nice, creamy lemon note accompanying an ultra light green rooibos base. I would have liked a little more flavour but it’s great to drink when you’re sick and need something caffeine-free. I’m currently battling a cold, but because I have been ultra dehydrated due to work, that further triggered a bacterial infection that’s a little TMI, so I’m missing a couple days of work. Hope my manager won’t be pissed at me, ugh.

Evol Ving Ness

It just never occurs to me to look for tea at Indigo, even though Sil took me on a tea tour there once. Thanks for the reminder.

MrQuackers

Indigo yuck.

Indigobloom

Uhhh what exactly is wrong with Indigo…

Fjellrev

She’s just too lovely, that’s what’s wrong.

Indigobloom

haha! Funny when I made that comment I wasn’t even thinking about my handle. You are da best Fjellrev!!! <3

Smooth, sweet, and creamy.

I’m sipping on this one right now while exploring the new album that Poppy just dropped. Really enjoying the two songs I’ve made it through so far – and while I didn’t intentionally pair this tea with the album (because the album drop was a total surprise to me) I have to say that the soft, delicate vanilla and creamy lemon notes of this tea are actually pretty perfectly meshing with the music!

Poppy’s voice is really soft and light/bubbly. I mean, her whole aesthetic is this sort of vaporwave/pastel goth sort of thing? It’s hard to describe.

Anyway this is the song I’m listening to: https://youtu.be/gfuQDsyvKak

Suffice to say that if you’ve heard Poppy’s music or tried this tea you’d understand how the two match up/line up perfectly together!

Lexie Aleah

Is it very citrus-y like or fruity?

Roswell Strange

Pretty lemony, but more of a sweet/creamy lemon rather than acidic or tangy.

Maddy Barone

I don’t care very much for the woody edge of rooibos. I believe the green rooibos isn’t as woody, so maybe this tea avoids that. Is that the case, Ms. Strange? Because this one sounds yummy, but I don’t like rooibos.

Roswell Strange

Definitely A LOT less woody than your typical rooibos, but there is a slight taste of it IMO so it’s not completely free of that taste.

Maddy Barone

well, darn. maybe 52Teas or another will come up with a honeybush version. :)

Thanks to rosehips for the sample!

What a cute dessert decaf! This is a rooibos with lemon, vanilla, and coconut. It’s really light and sweet.

It’s like if you were coming home on a sunny day and found — ta DA — a baby unicorn on your doorstep! Turns out the stork dropped it off JUST FOR YOU. What a DARLING WEE GUY.

Oh, and that little unicorn? Is never going to get higher than, say, waist-high. And it poops nice-smelling glitter.

You’re never going to take your unicorn very seriously, but it will be very nice to have around.

Flavors: Coconut, Frosting, Lemon, Sugar, Vanilla

Kaylee

This is easily one of the top ten tasting notes ever. Unicorn tea!

VariaTEA

This is delightful. Also reminds me of the squatty potty ad with the unicorns that poop the glitter rainbow ice cream.

Fjellrev

Ooh, maybe I’ll grab this if I ever see it, then.

I’m so surprised by this tea. The scent of it reminds me overwhelmingly of an 80’s scratch-n-sniff sticker. It’s not tart, and it definitely has some artificial flavors going on, but it’s rather harmonious. It doesn’t have any acrid/dry herbaceous taste that I would associate with some herbal teas. This, surprisingly, would be a contender for my regular rotation of decaf teas.

This was the sample that came with Republic of Tea’s latest catalog. RoT tends to be pretty hit and miss with me and this one was definitely a miss. It wasn’t horrible, it just really didn’t taste like much of anything. I was hoping for a smooth, creamy vanilla/lemon blend; instead I got a weak, barely-there artificial lemony flavor. Still glad I got to sample it, though…at least I won’t be tempted to waste my money on this one!

I got a sample of this in a swap with TeaBrat because I’d been wanting to try a lemon dessert tea. I’m really glad I did! This was a nice, sweet, creamy lemon flavor. No tartness here and just the right blend of vanilla to really hit the spot for me. Not to mention how good it smelled when brewed! I personally don’t have a problem with the lighter flavor I get from using one bag of this, but I know many other prefer to use two bags when having tea from RoT. I could see how that would be tasty with this particular flavor. I’ll be picking some of this up when I order from them again.

Flavors: Cream, Lemon, Vanilla

TeaBrat

Glad you liked it!

This one was a sample from albertocanfly. I was looking through my caffeine-free samples and this sounded so amazing, I had to try it! I love lemon, especially when paired with something sweet, as in lemon cake or sweet lemon candies. Honestly, the dry bags don’t smell much like lemon to me, more like a buttery pound cake with some lemon glaze as an afterthought. I used two sachets for about 10 ounces of water.

Ahh, the steeped tea smells much more lemony, hooray! I added a small amount of raw sugar to this one, because cakes are sweet of course! Hmm, the flavor is actually weaker than I thought it would be, especially since you’re supposed to use 6 ounces of water per bag. However, this is an extremely delicious and convenient lemon dessert tea! It tastes like a lemon cake with vanilla buttercream on top! And since it’s green rooibos, there’s no base tea flavor to interfere. Maybe next time I’ll just steep it longer or use even less water per bag. Yum!

I do not like red rooibos at all, but there are several of the green rooibos flavors from Republic of Tea that I rather like. Orange Red Carrot (or maybe it’s Red Orange Carrot) is my favorite of them, but Lemon Chiffon Cuppa Cake runs a close second. It reminds of of a Confetti Cupcake Pop Tart with an undercurrent of vanilla running through it.

To be fair, I didn’t brew it very well, since I was at school and had my oversized mug, but only used one teabag. It ended up on the weak side, but it was still really nice. I imagine when I brew it a bit stronger next time it will be better yet.
