I was thumbing thru my tea stash recently and decided to dive into Citrus Zing from Harlow Tea. It’s a Black Tea and Yerba Mate blended base. It has other surprises in there as well including lemongrass, orange peel, lemon peel, stevia leaf, tulsi, eleuthero root, myrtle leaf, and tangerine peel.
This tea was pretty good. It was a unique flavor combo. I appreciate Harlow Tea blending Black Tea with Yerba Mate and not stopping there but taking it to the next level of flavor with the other ingredients.
The stevia leaf threw me off a bit. I’m not overly fond of stevia in teas but after I continued to sip on this for a while I liked it more and more and it seemed to make more sense with the overall flavor. The trio of citrus peels combated that stevia flavor nicely and worked well.
The black tea was more on the mellow side. The Yerba Mate didn’t really have that stereotypical ‘pea’ taste I connect with Yerba Mate but that is totally fine with me – it’s not like I was craving fresh peas anyway!
This was satisfying hot but I think I would like it even better cold because of the sweetness of the stevia leaf. I like my teas straight-up with no added cream or sugars so this was sweet enough. I still think if you are the type that likes to throw sweeteners in your teas I would suggest trying it straight-up first as it IS already sweet on its own.
Neat flavor combo here! Citrus Zing from Harlow Tea assisted my morning not too long ago! And it was a might fine morning at that!
