I just got my order from the Tea Haus, a small business here in Canada! Everything came so fast and well-packaged – it left me pleasantly surprised! :) I love the new see through covers that they are using as well because it allows me to see what the loose leaf looks like through the bag!
Smell: This smells like a lemon candy, but also slightly herbal or medicinal? This might be because of the lemon verbena or lemon balm present in this tea? Also! The smell STAYS in the cup after you finish steeping it! :)
Taste: This tastes creamy? Which caught me off guard! But when I checked the ingredients, this has lemon cream flavouring, so I guess that creaminess that I am getting from this tea makes sense! Also, I think I expected a refreshing citrus taste; however, the actual lemon flavour of this tea is less sharp and more mellow. It is not bitter at all, but smooth like lemon grass. To be honest, it tastes like a melted lemon hard candy without the sugar!
I mostly bought this because I know white tea has a lot of health benefits (it is extremely high in antioxidants) and I thought this flavoured white tea would be a fun way to try out more white teas!
I enjoyed this one! I am just not sure I enjoyed it enough to repurchase it, but luckily, they offer 25 gram bags! :) So, I am glad I got to try it.
Flavors: Candy, Citrus, Cream, Lemon, Lemongrass, Smooth
