Lemonade from Shanti Tea

I remember LiberTeas reviewed Lemonade from Shanti Tea a few years ago but I figured it would be a good time for me to add my two cents worth before I’m faced with colder weather in the upcoming winter months. Lemonade from Shanti Tea is a Green Rooibos based herbal tisane that I am quite fond of.

Yeah, it’s still sweet, but this is actually more tart than it is sweet!  The Read More
