Lemon Green Tea from Tea Trunk. . . . .

IInstagram is both awesome and terrible when it comes to tea. Well really when it comes to anything. Through the App, I have learned of countless tea companies, a billion restaurants, and so much more. It truly is an effective marketing tool.

Tea Trunk is one of the tea companies I found through Instagram. I came across it and was instantly intrigued by their adorable packaging. Seriously, the elephant theme is just too cute. I was so captivated in fact that I found myself visiting their site…and then I found myself buying a tin of assorted tea bags.

If I am being honest I think I bought the tin because I liked the many different elephant wrappers on the tea bags more so than I liked the actual selection of teas it had to offer (standard flavors like vanilla black, rose oolong, etc.). Nonetheless, I paid more than $20 USD because I have no impulse control and just HAD to have it.

I have been slowly trying the teas since they have arrived and have yet to be blown away. None have been bad but none have really left a lasting impression either. Unfortunately this blend is just more of the same.

It is a slightly grassy green tea base with a hint of lemon flavor. Though the lemon is bright throughout the sip, it gets a bit pithy in the aftertaste. It is pleasant enough for now but not one that I will be needing again. If you are looking for a simple lemon green tea, with adorable packaging, this is for you but for me I don’t think I could justify the price again.

Hey there! My name is Rachel. I’m a twenty-something from Toronto, Ontario, Canada who loves dogs and has a bit of an obsession with tea. As a child I hated the stuff since all I ever knew was Red Rose (no offense to Red Rose). However, a few years ago that all changed. I was on a diet and desperate for new flavors without adding calories and that’s when I turned to tea. I started off by going to DAVIDsTEA and Teavana for all their dessert-inspired flavors, and since I didn’t know any better, I bought 100 grams each of about twenty-something different teas. This was okay for the teas I liked but for those I didn’t I needed to find some way of getting rid of them.

Enter Steepster.com. This is where I met some incredible tea friends, discovered tea swaps, and learned of so many amazing tea companies. My desire to try all the teas grew and since joining three years ago I have tried over a thousand different teas. I have learned what ingredients I love and I have learned what flavors I don’t like. I determined my go-to brewing method is Western-style with no added milk or sweeteners, though I also enjoy cold brewing, iced teas, teapops, lattes, and smoothies. I have yet to brew gong-fu style but I hope to do so just as soon as I get the proper teaware to do it.

About a year ago, I actually stopped drinking tea but as my stash of over 200 teas started aging I decided I needed to respark my interest. I chose to take a 365 days of tea challenge on Instagram in which I post a new tea picture every day. So far it has been rather successful as I find myself drinking (and buying) more and more tea each day. Plus it enabled CuppaGeek to find me and invite me here to SororiTea Sisters.
