My Grandfather ADORED Lemon Drop Candy! When I first saw Lemon Drop Tea from The Tea Can Company I couldn’t wait to try it! It’s part of their Candy Shop Collection. The labels for their Candy Shop Collection are adorable and nostalgic.
High elevation Ceylon Black Tea, Lemon Peel and Australian Lemon Myrtle? I’m THERE! The company says this tea has the mouthwatering taste of Lemon and the classic taste of Black Tea come together to create this delightful, sweet, low-calorie treat. Again…I’m THERE!
Well it certainly smells like Lemon Drop Candy with a bit of black tea! The aroma is gentle and flowing. Lemony-sweet! I closed my eyes in slow-motion as I sniffed this flavored black steeping in my cup!
After my first sip I was pretty pleased with my first impression of this tea. It’s not a powerful black tea base by any means but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t LOVE it! Because I did! The lemon peel and lemon myrtle worked great together – of course! I’m surprised at the candy-sweet yet citrus flavor this has only having 3 ingredients in it! The perfect case of ‘less is more’.
The lemon flavors aren’t puckery – per say – but more of a sugary-sweet and creamier lemon flavor. If you are familiar with Meyer Lemons that may just be what this is reminding me of! Meyer Lemons. Thus far…my favorite LEMON.
Regardless…Lemon Drop Tea from The Tea Can Company is absolutely wonderful! It reminds me of my grandfather and takes me back in time! A time when things were more simple and everyone appreciated the little things! YUM!
