Its OK"Bottom Line: Because I don't think I've said it enough, this isn't a bad tea, it just doesn't have the complexity that I've come to associate with Red Leaf."

redleafteaafricansummer.jpgRed Leaf Tea is quickly becoming my go-to place for new and interesting blends. They have a whole section devoted to "unique teas" which always has something when I'm looking to try something different and out of the ordinary. Because of this, I was expecting this tea to be somewhere along the lines of your typical herbal blend with a twist. Unfortunately, it turned out to just be your average herbal blend.

Don't get me wrong, this tea isn't bad. It's just nothing special. The blend itself looks gorgeous, with the various green leafy ingredients mixed in with bits of red and yellow flowers. With this combination of ingredients, I was at least expecting it to smell interesting, or at least a bit more complex. As it is, it smells like lemongrass. It's not a bad thing, again, just not quite was I was expecting.

The flavor is, unfortunately, no more interesting that the smell. It's lemony, and that's pretty much it. Not in a bad way, just in a not-that-interesting way.

Bottom Line: Because I don't think I've said it enough, this isn't a bad tea, it just doesn't have the complexity that I've come to associate with Red Leaf. It would make an excellent iced tea for the summer, and it's cheap enough to warrant buying in bulk, so if you're a fan of lemon-flavored tea, it would make a nice addition if you're already ordering something from Red Leaf, but it's probably not something you'd want to buy exclusively from Red Leaf.
