Every time I enter a grocery store, I find myself tossing a mixture of tea and newfangled flavored Oreos* into my cart.
*Apple pie flavor: EFFECTIVE.
For this reason, my husband prefers to grocery shop alone.
However, I have NO SHOPPING REGRETS, GUYS. This blend tastes JUST like the Starbucks lemon cake. It is lemon swimming in sugary icing sweetness. It tastes like calories. The word “divine” comes to mind.
If you want to make your own cake version of the Starbucks lemon loaf, try this recipe. Or… you can just try this tea.
Here’s the scoop!

I am not a fan of plain rooibos, but I have found a few flavored tisanes that use it as the base that are quite good. (I am speaking of red rooibos when I say the cherry flavor is too medicinal for me most of the time. Green rooibos is another animal entirely.)
This blend is really tasty! It smells great and the dominant flavors I get up front are lemon myrtle, lemon, and honeybush. The rooibos really comes as an aftertaste and is not unpleasant. The lavender and marigold are a nice side note, and if I am tasting pomegranate I must be honest and say I wouldn’t recognize it but it isn’t a flavor I am terribly familiar with.
This reminds me a bit of those lemon drops that come in a little tin. Thumbs up for me and I can’t wait to try it iced because it is going to ROCK as an iced tea!

There’s a reason why we call this a brilliant blend. Remember that Lemon Chiffon cake that Grandma made? It’s like that, without the cleanup or pinches to your cheek. A rooibos blend that smells like you could eat it straight out of the jar. Since it has no caffeine, it’s the perfect compliment to any after dinner treat.
