Company Description:

Chamomile Lemon Drop is a smooth blend of very healthy Sencha green tea with fresh-cut ginger root, lemon myrtle, a few citrus peels, lemon grass, orange preserves and English chamomile.  This is a very refreshing green tea that we like to drink in the early afternoon.

Taster’s Review:

I reviewed this tea previously, but, it’s so good that I feel like writing about it again!

This is a really delicious blend.  The flavors are very well balanced.  Nothing overpowering or competing with anything else.  Just a refreshingly light tea experience that is pleasantly sweet.

The Sencha is light and offers a hint of buttery taste to the cup which is further complimented by the lemongrass.  This tastes lemony, but it isn’t sour.  It is lightly tart, and leaves a citrus-y tingle on the tip of tongue in the finish.

The chamomile is delicate in this blend, as is the ginger.  It is incredibly relaxing to sip, and it is one that I’d recommend for early evening when you’re at that point in your day that you want to wind down but aren’t quite ready to pack it in yet.



Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
