Lemon Chiffon from The Love Tea Company. . . .

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!

Here’s the scoop!

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.

Lemon Blush from Zhi. . . . .

This was a pleasantly zen tea! I tried it hot, at directed concentrations, steeped for six minutes, with no additives. I could envision this tea being enjoyable cold for those that love fruit infused water.

Unlike most lemon teas I encounter, the lemon was present, but not overpowering. It required no sweetening, and my sweet teeth are rather demanding, so that’s saying a lot! It is supplemented with stevia leaf, and unlike the dietary sweetener, was not at all off-putting. The hibiscus brings a beautiful deep blush of color to the cup, and a mild flavor addition. I honestly did not detect the clove, but perhaps my teaspoon missed it!

It is a moderately aromatic tea that could serve double duty as a calming aromatherapy. Calming, but not sedating, the aroma and taste would serve well as a morning or bedtime tea. At longer steep times (twelve minutes), the tartness and tanginess of the lemon and hibiscus are stronger, but still remains one of the most gentle and subtle lemon teas I’ve experienced, and now one of my favorites!

Taster’s Review:

Tonight was just one of those nights were I was craving an herbal tea.  I looked thru my tea stash and stumbled upon this beauty. I have been wanting to try tea from the Tea Dude in a long time and it was finally time!

This particular tea is an herbal with a lemon flair.  First whiff of the dry leaves you definitely get that familiar herbal aroma but with a fresh kiss of a citrus touch.  Gentle yet there.  I couldn’t wait to steep this up.  Scooped out a few scoops into my tea pot and boiled water.  About 8 minutes later, I was ready to try my first sip.

The description nails this one.  This tea does have a candy sweetness that reminds you of PEZ. I love candy so this was perfect for me.  Sweet with a lemon twist in every sip.  There isn’t an earthy or grassy like flavor that you can get from herbals.  This is just straight delicious lemon flavored herbal tea. This tea is a perfect tea to just sit down with a good book and snuggle in. Or with a good show and binge all 5 seasons in one day.  I can see myself getting lost with a cuppa of this in a horror movie. I can also see this being an incredibly soothing tea to enjoy after a long stressful day or even if you have sinus issues like I do.  Calming, relaxing, soothing and great tasting. . .I’m so impressed with this delight!

To me this is the perfect herbal tea. Sweet yet not overly so with a hint of that honeybush flavor I do so enjoy.  Lemon Candy Pez. . . I’m in!
