Vanessa’s Teaview Snapshot
|"I found this tea to be the ideal lemon tea because the lemon flavor is genuine and in the perfect amount to complement, instead of overwhelm, the Ceylon tea base"|
I am not that well versed in lemon flavored black teas because the few that I have had have been fairly disappointing in that they are either way too sour to be enjoyable, or the flavor is too artificial. I had high hopes for this tea because it contains only lemon peel and lemon myrtle in addition to the Ceylon tea. As I have already written about the packaging side of The Tea Can Company, I am going to focus this review only on the tea itself. I steeped my tea sachet in boiling water for three minutes to produce a reddish-coppery tea with a sweet an gentle lemon aroma. With just one sip, two things instranly struck me: 1) The lemon flavor is wonderful, being perfectly natural and not too pungent, and 2) this tea is not at all sour, but instead remarkable sweet with a flavor who's finish resembles the nuttiness of rooibos tea. I found this tea to be, for me, the ideal lemon tea because the lemon flavor is genuine and in the perfect amount to complement, instead of overwhelm, the Ceylon tea base. Although I have a fairly limited basis for comparison, I will say that this tea is the best lemon-flavored black tea that I have sampled. The Ceylon base is solid yet not too strong, further elevating my impression of this tea. The tea is very soothing as a hot tea, but also very refreshing and thirst-quenching as an iced tea, so it gets extra points for versatility.
