Lemon Cakes Loose Tea a GoT (Game of Thrones) inspired tea for Sansa’s love for buttery lemon cakes. Being a huge fan of GoT, I had to try it out. Plus green teas are my favorite. So this was a win win!
I was extremely excited to share this tea with my family so the last together we had family dinner, I brewed up a huge pot of this tea. The tea smelled amazing. Rich smooth lemony goodness. But unfortunately, I oversteeped the tea. Shame on me for not setting a timer. So I took the tea leaves, put them into a stick infuser, grabbed a glass of ice and proceeded to make cold brew tea.
This tea was simply decadent! Rich lush creamy lemon notes with a underlying green tea hint here and there. I couldn’t believe how very close to a lemon cake this actually tasted like. There was even a sugary feel that gave way to an icing note completing the sip. It doesn’t really get better than a tall refreshing glass of tea that reminds you of an iced lemon cake. I’m over the moon about this tea! Even if this blend wasn’t GoT inspired, I would still absolutely adore it. Just a wonderful refreshing way to pick up anyone’s day. This tea just screams sunshine and happiness!
I’m hoping this tea is still around when GoT returns next year. Especially since this next season is supposed to come out during the summer. The perfect companion to enjoy one of my favorite shows!

Tonight is the night! Game of Thrones finale! How exciting! This season has been an intense one. We really haven’t had any filler episodes. Each episode has been in your face with pure action and have been emotionally driven. Love this show and I’m sad this season is about over. It feels like it just began!
In honor of tonight’s episode, I am going to review Dornish Wine, a GoT inspired tea from Margaret’s Fine Imports. I have tried almost all of the GoT inspired teas. So far, the Wilding White has been my favorite.
Dornish Wine is an interesting blend. The dry leaves had a very berry smell to them. There are several different kinds of berries in this blend. I was excited when I saw the dried grapes in the lineup. The blend itself was very pretty. Lots of deep reds. I wonder if this is how the wine tastes in King’s Landing.
I steeped this tea like a traditional black tea. Brewed up this blend tasted more like a very dry red wine. It did actually taste like wine. I couldn’t believe it. Somehow Margaret’s Fine Imports actually found a way to make their tea taste like wine. How fun!
Unfortunately I am not a dry red wine fan, but I added in just a bit of honey from Bee Local and this tea was just a delight. I couldn’t really taste each individual berry flavor, but this had that berry profile to it.
Fan or not of this show, this tea was a fun experience! Having a tea that actually tasted like wine was pretty impressive and the fact that they were able to capture the dry feature of the wine was even more impressive! This may not be my favorite of the GoT line up, but I”ll keep some on hand to experiment with and see what I can come up with maybe with cold brewing.
Regardless, Winter is Coming . . . . . .
