Lime Green with Envy from BlendBee

Lime-Green-with-EnvyTea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green

Where to Buy: Amoda Tea

Tea Description:

You don’t see as many lime teas as you do lemon because it’s so much more sour than a lemon and can be tough to balance in a tea. Here it really works though. The lime is tame. The strong green teas and the raspberry leaf give the tea backbone – a little bit earthy, vegetal and what hints at a black tea flavour.

What’s In It: 
All organic ingredients: sencha green tea, china green tea, lemon peel, raspberry leaf, lime extract.

Taster’s Review:

Let’s all say that when I opened up this month’s Amoda Tea box, I squealed. . . LOUDLY! I love Amoda Tea’s monthly box and to see a company that I have been wanting to try for some tea featured, well, I was a happy girl to say the least.

Each month Amoda Tea puts together a thoughtful offering for their customers.  What I love is that when I open the box up, they have lovingly packaged my teas with my name on it. That just makes you smile!

This month they featured BlendBee, a company that I first heard about on Twitter.  When I saw that there was a sampling of Lime Green with Envy, I couldn’t get my infuser out quick enough.  This tea is described as a green tea with a sour twist. That is a lot for a tea to live up to. So I prepared my water and sat somewhat patiently while the tea steeped.  3 minutes later I was ready to take my first sip.

My initial thoughts? Wow, they got this right! I can really pick up that lime flavor.  Sour but not overly so that I’m puckering up as I drink the tea.  The green tea base is laying down a nice flavor that is somewhat grassy with notes of a vegetal finish.  Each flavor contrasts the other in a very nice way. This tea was crisp and refreshing!

As much as I loved this tea hot, I wanted to try it cold so I popped in a few ice cubes, threw the infuser back in the tea and let it steep for a few more minutes.

What I got in return was one of the best iced teas I’ve had in a bit. This will be one of those teas that I’ll be remembering for some time to come. Cold this tea just shines. I would love to finish this glass off with a nice lemon or lime wedge and possibly turn this tea into a mojito even. Cooled down the lime flavor really shines thru and I’m reminded of summer.  A great tea to have to bring some sunshine in your day.

This month’s offerings have made me realize that I need an Amoda Monthly Tea Box in my life every month.  I will be asking for a subscription for Christmas and if Santa doesn’t bring me what I want? I’ll be getting for myself!

I am a late 30s something mom who loves her family, will be getting married to a wonderful guy and has 4 kids (2 mine-2 his). We have a beautiful life together and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun. I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn’t bumble the first infusion.

Besides SororiTea Sisters, I’m also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
