I love my green rooibos. Red rooibos- can’t stand the stuff. But green rooibos I simply love and adore.
So the other day when I was going thru my oh so neglected tea stash I stumbled upon this delight. This is one example of why I love Steepster so much. I’m sure this tea came from one of my Steepster friends who wanted to share their tea love with me. Without that person sending me a lovely care package, I’m not sure I would have ever had this tea and that would have been a shame!
First off, the dry leaves smell so sweet and have a lovely lemon baked dessert fragrance. I brewed this up like an herbal-212F-5 minutes and allowed it to cool for a moment.
Wow, does this taste good! This tea tastes like a lemon tart! You can really taste the lemon but it tastes more like a lemon pie filling. Sweet and lush. There is also a tart like flavor that gives the tea more of a dessert quality. This may not taste like a lemon meringue pie but it still tastes amazing! I even had enough left over to try this tea iced and I ended up with the same amazing results. The only flavor I was really missing was the pie like flavor. The rest of them are spot on. I was even able to get a couple infusions out of this tea. I drank this tea to curve my sweet tooth craving that hits me somewhere between 2pm-3pm. It worked too!
I’m pretty impressed with this tea and I’m excited to see that I have more Tealish to try in the future.
