Lemon Poundcake Oolong from David’s Tea. . . . .

I don’t like lemon tea, honestly. I know that was not what you were expecting for the first line of a review on Lemon Poundcake Oolong tea, but it’s the truth. That said, the reason I decided to pick up some of this tea was: #1 I had some Frequent Steeper points I wanted to use and #2 The description of a “buttery Oolong” was tempting, and even though I may not generally like lemon tea I do like Lemon Poundcake. (or any poundcake, for that matter)   The first thing I noticed upon opening the bag was that there Read More

Limoncello from The NecessiTeas. . . .

Lemon is not my favorite flavor. I find that it is very overpowering and oftentimes all lemon teas end up tasting the same because of it.

Lemon Cakes from The Forest Witch

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 Read More
