Lemon Myrtle from The Tea Can Company

Lemon Myrtle from The Tea Can Company is absolutely TEA…riffic! It contains high elevation Ceylon Black Tea, Lemon Peel, and Australian Lemon Myrtle. Just 3 ingredients give off an incredible flavor!

The first infusion had a hearty black tea base with sweet and slightly bitter lemon peel – as well as – juicy yet candied-sweet lemon flavors throughout the sip

The 2nd infusion still had a nice but more muted black tea base. The lemon peel flavor wasn’t as intense but the sweet-candied lemon myrtle was still shining bright!

I enjoyed BOTH infusions very much! The lemon was very true! The black tea base stood up strong against it but the two really joined hands and played well together! Lemon Myrtle from The Tea Can Company may be one of my favorites that I have tried from this company so far! It’s fabulous hot or cold!

Sweet Slo-Sippin’ SimpliciTEA Green from Cup of Love

Are you a fan of Lemon AND Lime flavor things? Are you a fan of SWEET…Slow…Sippin’? Then Sweet Slo-Sippin’ SimpliciTEA Green Tea from Cup of Love might just be one to try!

Wonderful lemon and lime scents fill the air as soon as you open the package of Sweet Slo-Sippin’ SimpliciTEA Green Tea from Cup of Love. You can clearly see the dried pieces of citrusy fruit waiting to be infused. There are also petals and grasses of flavored-delightfulness that you can see in the dry blend as well.

It’s intensely aromatic and a great flavored green tea once you’ve infused the loose leaf mix in your favorite strainer or other method for loose leaf, that is. Sweet Slo-Sippin’ SimpliciTEA Green Tea from Cup of Love is just what I needed when I needed it! It’s scrumptious hot but also dandy cold/iced, too!

If you prefer black teas to green teas Cup of Love has a flavored Black Tea version of this, too, that I think you will enjoy! Lucky for me…I adored BOTH. I can’t pick one over the other at this time. I like them equally but for different reasons! Now…back to…Slo-Sippin’!

Taster’s Review:

If you haven’t tried or checked Plum Deluxe out, do yourself a favor and click on those links above. Plum Deluxe is one of those companies that just makes you happy from the start. I may not like every blend they create, but they always put 100% into each blend, truly care about their customers, and have even created an online community for their monthly tea subscribers that is extremely active. I don’t participate as often as I would like to but I always check out whats going on. They have swaps and lots of fun goings on in the group. So neat to see what Plum Deluxe has created.

I have been a customer of Plum Deluxe for some time. I enjoy getting my purple envelope each month full of loose leaf goodness. Like I said, I don’t enjoy every blend but I can always find someone to share the tea with.  Each blend is gorgeously hand blended giving you all the lovely tea feels you can want and more.

This month’s selection is a black tea, which I couldn’t be happier about. (I didn’t see this tea listed in the shop so I think this might be a subscriber only tea.)  My favorite blends that Plum Deluxe creates are black and green tea blends. Midnight Melange Black Tea is a lovely blend of lemon peel, black tea, hibiscus, vanilla, and rose petals. The pieces of lemon are huge and the smell of this tea blend is heavenly.

Prepped with boiling water, I scooped a few tsps into my infuser and steeped the tea for about 4 minutes.  I didn’t want to oversteep so I played it safe in the middle of the suggested parameters.  I allowed the tea to cool for a moment and took a sip.

This tea shines and is perfection! Lush lemon along with a sweet creamy vanilla finish.  There are hints of a tartness here and there from the hibiscus.  The hibiscus is subtle and completes the sweetness from the vanilla nicely. A simple yet complex tea all at the same time. Each flavor really shines and delivers a lovely and gorgeous finished product.

Can’t wait to try this tea as a cold brew. I’m hoping the lemon flavors pop even more.

Another well crafted tea from Plum Deluxe!
